Costly Calcium Conundrum

Costly Calcium ConundrumCalcium-Chloride

Word has started to hit the street that Calcium Chloride will be in short supply this coming season. Major manufacturers like Dow and Occidental have already informed their customers that Calcium Chloride will be on allocation. This means that not all orders will be fulfilled. Finding an affordable supply of Calcium Chloride will be a challenge this fall and winter. Calcium Chloride (CaCl) is a very common ice melter product that is known for its fast melting power down to very low temperatures. It is also will known for having some major drawbacks including a short shelf life, requiring more applications than other ice melters, leaving an oily residue behind and being dangerous to people, pets, & the environment. Many customers will be looking for quality alternatives that effectively melt ice that are not sodium based.   XYNYTH Manufacturing has two solutions for customers who find themselves in this conundrum. Mountain Organic Natural™ Icemelter and GroundWorks Natural™ Icemelter are perfect alternatives to Calcium Chloride. Not only are they much safer and cleaner, the required usage is only half that of Calcium for the same results. The restrictions on supply will drive up the price causing many to look at cheaper options of Calcium. For those that are more focused on the lower melting temperature and fast action of Calcium over the environmental concerns. This is perfect timing to try our new Arctic Orange™ Icemelter product. The new formulation is designed to work fast and hot like Calcium but will last long longer then pure Calcium Chloride.

Ice melters for your loving pets!

XYNYTH Manufacturing Corp.’s GroundWorks Natural Icemelter™ is a premium product, with all the benefits of tradition ice melters, but none of the risks: While traditional ice melters are toxic, dangerous, and damaging, GroundWorks™ is environmentally-friendly, safe on concrete, safe on lawns and landscaping, safe for use around children, and safe for use around pets.

Why? Because GroundWorks™ is made of potash (potassium chloride, or KCI) , a colorless crystalline solid or powder used widely in fertilizers and in the preparation of most potassium compounds. When pets come into contact with traditional ice melters, like calcium chloride for example, their paws are burned, and their eyes, noses and tummies are irritated. The same concern simply doesn’t exist if they come into contact with GroundWorks™ . In fact, potassium chloride is used for many things — we come into contact with it daily!

Potassium chloride is a plant nutrient and common agricultural fertilizer used by farmers worldwide that helps grow bigger, stronger plants with improved disease
resistance, increased resistance to stress from drought. In fact, using potassium chloride near plants, crops and landscaping can help to repair some of the damage caused by the over-application of sodium products over the years.

Home-owners and building managers use potassium chloride as an effective water softener to eliminate the calcium and magnesium in groundwater that cause soap scum and lime scale, and as such it is often present in our drinking water.People with cardiovascular disorders and those who want to avoid sodium, use potassium chloride as a salt substitute. And though it’s not considered as tasty as its less-healthy counterpart, it’s a food additive in many things we eat, including cheese, margarine, ice-cream, breakfast cereals, sweeteners, soups and broths, beer, and many processed/freeze-dried, and canned foods.
Because potassium is a mineral required for healthy physiology, it’s also an ingredient found in many over-the-counter and prescription medicines.

Potassium chloride is so safe that it’s a common alternative to traditional salt licks often put out for livestock including deer and horses. Popular pet food brands like Beneful®,Hill’s Science Diet®, Nutro® Natural Choice, Pedigree®, Purina®, Iams®, Eukanuba®, and Kibbles ‘n Bits® all include potassium chloride as an ingredient in a variety of their specialty foods.

Safe for crops, safe for plants, safe for soil, safe for concrete, safe for water, safe to eat . . . GroundWorks™ is the safest icemelter on the market.

So when the safety of the four-legged members of your family counts, choose GroundWorks™.
