MeltDown Near Zero™

A high-performance, low-corrosion deicing product used to clear snow and ice from roadways, walkways, driveways, and parking lots.

MeltDown Near Zero™ is used extensively by retail consumers, state and local governments and commercial deicing companies as it delivers faster melting speeds and environmentally friendly qualities.


Designed for general use on sidewalks, entryways, and small parking areas, MeltDown Near Zero™ contains a medium screened material that quickly penetrates and dissolves snowpack and ice. MeltDown Near Zero™ can be used in conjunction with or as a replacement for traditional sand/salt deicing methods. It can be applied with any type of small spreader or by hand. It is packaged into 50 lb., 40 lb. and 25 lb. bags as well as other quantities and containers, including bulk loads.


MeltDown Near Zero™ outperforms ordinary salt in speed and efficiency. Effective to 5°F, this product melts ice and snow faster with less product, up to 50% less, than ordinary salt. MeltDown Near Zero’s™ natural and unique reddish/pink color enables it to use the sun’s heat to provide maximum melting strength. It dissolves slowly and stays on the roadway or walkway longer to help prevent freezing of new snow or ice. This all natural product is as safe to handle as ordinary table salt and reduces the impact on the environment.
