Ice Tracer Ice Melt
Safer on plants...
Coating each salt crystal with magnesium chloride increases the safeness for your tress and vegetation.
Safe for pets...
If you are concerned with your pets ingesting (licking their paws) the ice melt, salt is still the best option but
then you risk killing plants and your sidewalks. Sierra Blue's colorant is an all natural ultramarine blue that
is cosmetic grade.
Will the blue color stain?
Unlike other colored ice melts, we use a cosmetic grade ultramarine blue, which is 100% natural. Our
colorant has yet to stain a carpet, floor or sidewalk to date
Less product, less application!
Sierra Blue with Blue Fusion increase the
melting power, meaning it can melt ice in
temperatures below 0*. It also helps prevent
re-freezing of the ice/water during the lower
temperatures. Because Sierra Blue is a
better melting agent than plain salt it
decrease the amount of product and the
amount applications, which saves you time
How Sierra Blue works...
After Sierra Blue has been spread out on the
ice it will melt/dissolve into a liquid, called a
brine, to melt the ice. Once the melting
process start, the brine has a lower freezing
temperature than water. The lowest
temperature a brine can reach, depending on
ingredients, is -25*. Over time, melting snow
and ice will dilute the brine, The more diluted
the brine becomes, the higher its freezing
point will be. Continued dilution will return the
freezing point back to 32*.
How Sierra Blue is Made?
Sierra Blue is made in Nevada. The salt
(sodium chloride) is harvested from a
self-sustaining salt flat located in Fallon,
Nevada. We then coat each salt crystal with
Blue Fusion, a colored liquid magnesium
chloride with corrosion inhibitor to maximizes
Better than the rest...
When Sierra Blue is compared to other ice
melts with magnesium chloride, it is
important to find out if the salt is coated with
liquid mag or if it contains magnesium flakes
On average a 50lb bag of ice melt can cover
2500 sq ft, by using Sierra Blue all of that
2500 sq ft area covered has magnesium
chloride, which increase melt power, safer
for sidewalks and plants, and drops the
refreezing temperature even lower. Ice melts
with mag flake on average has 3 lbs or less
in them. When you spread out that 3 lbs of
flake, it cover about 150 sq ft! Not nearly has
effective as coated salt crystals.
