Ice melting products including those mentioned lower the freezing temperature of ice despite the extreme cold temperatures. Some of these products could reduce the freezing point to a negative 30 degrees Celsius. Not only are they engineered to create brine to help melt the ice, but they are designed to generate heat as well. Ice melting products are efficient in doing its job, but it is also faster-acting, cutting down melting time to about half. Often these types of ice melts are less corrosive to metals and vehicles, and conversely may be more harmful to pets if ingested in large doses.
