    Cargill Salt's new GreenMelt® ice melter now works down to -5° F and is tinted green for easy-to-see coverage on ice and packed snow. It offers a commercial strength blend of fast-acting calcium chloride and extended-action sodium chloride for a more economical one-two punch than calcium chloride alone. This combination gives sidewalk and parking lot crews a critical 20-minute jump-start from the calcium chloride, coupled with 60-plus minutes of extended melting action from the sodium chloride.
    Cargill is helping buyers make better purchasing decisions by disclosing product ingredients — as well as the percentages of all melting ingredients — on its Diamond Crystal® ice melter packaging. The disclosure is part of a broader effort Cargill is undertaking to inform buyers and users about ingredient performance, based on established Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) test data. This data, combined with ingredient disclosure, enables a buyer to evaluate and verify product claims and performance.

    To help grounds maintenance professionals and snow removal contractors choose the right ice melters for their needs, Cargill offers "5 Questions to Ask About Any Ice Melter," available at http://www.cargill.com/salt/wcm/groups/internal/documents/image/na3036958.pdf, or by calling 888-385-SALT 888-385-SALT (7258).
