    CalPath combines two ice-melting compounds into a single sodium chloride and calcium chloride Crystal not a blend or a coated salt crystal, but a salt crystal with calcium infused in it. (Use less) Green product. Sodium chloride works at peak about 25°F (-4°C). It reduces the freezing point of water, thereby melting the ice. However, sodium chloride needs heat and moisture to work — both of which are in short supply in cold, dry winter days. In addition, even as it starts to melt ice, sodium chloride absorbs heat. Conversely, calcium chloride attracts moisture and produces a brine as it melts, releasing heat in the process and reducing the freezing point of water to below -50°F (-45°C). Aside from its effectiveness as an ice-melter, calcium chloride stays on the surface to prevent refreezing

    The difference is crystal clear
    Together, sodium chloride and calcium chloride melt ice more efficiently and cost-effectively than either compound alone. But what differentiates CalPath from other products is its unique form. CalPath reprocesses the sodium chloride and calcium chloride through a proprietary process ensuring each crystal contains the same amount of each material. Blends merely mix rock salt and small portions of various chlorides — which is why other products don't even accurately list their components. The power of our crystal process simply provides the best results available, melting ice to -15°F.
