Peladow breaks the bond with pavement faster:
Their round shape enables them to bore downward through ice up to three times faster than flat or crystal-shaped ice melters, which melt sideways across the ice, slowing penetration and melting.
Peladow creates brine faster, giving its melting action a head start:
An ice melter’s speed depends on how easily it attracts moisture from its surrounding, speeding up the melting action & the creation of brine. Brine lowers the freezing point of water and melts snow and ice on contact.
