The advantages of calcium chloride flakes for snow and ice removal are that they provide a large flat surface area and stay put when applied. The flat profile allows them to sit on surfaces that are slopped or exposed to wind that would typically have “roll-off” when using a pellet style deicer. They also easily pass through ice melt spreaders and equipment freely providing an even and consistent coverage when applied.

Calcium chloride flakes, like DowFlaketm Xtra, are highly effective at cold temperatures down to -25F.
