Ice-Melt & De-Icing coloration aids in the visual identification of icy areas that have been treated.  With safety being a primary concern in areas such as stairways, pedestrian sidewalks, parking lots, and industrial loading areas,  colorant-treated ice-melts help to minimize dangerous hazards.  OrcoTint NS™ colorants are the preferred color  ingredient in ice-melt formulations as they have minimal or virtually no staining effects to concrete, asphalt, brick, wood, clothing, shoes, leather, & carpet, and are  highly concentrated, environmentally friendly to vegetation, easy-to-use, and visually appealing.   OrcoMelt™ dyes are economical and tinctorally strong dyes suited for large volume road and industrial parking lot applications.  OrcoTint NS™ and OrcoMelt™ ice-melt dyes are also non-reactive to salts and are stable in rock salt, calcium chloride, sodium chloride, potassium chloride,  calcium magnesium acetate, and magnesium chloride formulations.

Actual dye samples must be evaluated in a laboratory on medium to be dyed in production for accurate shade and physical property results. Shades shown on print material and computer monitors are for general reference only as they are inherently inaccurate due to calibration variations and technical limitations of monitors and printers.
