Halite Salt Crystals
Our packaged grade sodium chloride crystals are carefully screened and are a higher quality to prevent caking in the bags and to facilitate free flowing product that is easily scattered using broadcast, drop, and rotary spreaders. Rock salt in bags makes for easy application for the homeowner and facilities manager for commercial properties alike.

  • Specifically sized and screened to enhance traction
  • Optimally screened for use in salt spreaders and to maximize coverage
  • Keeps walkways and driveways ice-free well below freezing
  • Safe for concrete and vegetation when used as recommended
  • Can also be used in the process of making ice cream
  • Economical

Rock Salt Ice Melt is available in 10lb, 25lb, 40lb, 50lb, and 80lb durable poly bags stacked on pallets for easy transportation and storage.


Diamond Crystal® Winter Melt® Ice Melter
Unique sizing mixture of large and small crystals of natural sodium chloride in Diamond Crystal®Winter Melt® mean small crystals melt on contact and large crystals provide longevity and instant traction. Works best at temperatures of 5 degrees F. and above. Leaves no oily residue.
Application: Application rates vary. Spread one-half to one cup per square yard of Diamond Crystal® Winter Melt® ice melter evenly over ice and snow compacted surfaces. Quantity and melting action will depend upon temperature and thickness of compacted ice and snow.
Availability: 50 lb poly bag
80 lb poly bag
4/10 lb bale
Also available in bulk


Pure & Natural Deicer

A blended deicer containing sodium chloride, calcium chloride, and magnesium chloride
Our packaged Pure and Natural Deicer starts by using crystals that are carefully screened and are high quality. Calcium chloride and magnesium chloride are added along with EnviroIndicator, a green tinted organic dye for ease and confirmation of application.

  • Performance blend melts snow and ice down to -6°F
  • EnviroIndicator: A very small amount (0.00025%) of a biodegradable non-ultraviolet stable organic dye is added so that when applying to white snow and ice, users can easily identify treated areas.
  • EnviroIndicator prevents over application which helps the environment
  • 50 lb. heat sealed plastic bags packed 50/pallet
  • 48×40  four-way entry pallets stretch wrapped with bottom slip sheet
  • Uniform particle size to facilitate easy flow in most spreaders
  • Proven commercial/professional formula

Strategic Partnerships Assure Quality and Supply

Here’s a brief movie which explains why we have partnered with K+S North America in salt products for the past 19 years and why we are confident of the quality and availability of our bulk highway salt.

Water Conditioning Salt
Salt is also used for treating potable water (drinking water) to remove hardness or “softened” by using an ion-exchange process.

The cause of water hardness is the presence of other metal ions, typically calcium and magnesium ions. If those ions are removed, the hardness disappears. In ion-exchange, problematic ions are exchanged for desirable ones. In its original state, an ion exchange polymer or resin carries sodium ions on its surface. This has a strong affinity for larger, more highly charged calcium and magnesium ions. When hard water passes over the resin, the sodium ions are displaced. As sodium salts are more soluble than calcium and magnesium, the symptoms of hardness disappear. Although chemical and other methods can bring some control over hardness, only ion-exchange can completely remove the calcium and magnesium ions that cause it.

Water softening grades of our salt come in many forms: granular, buttons, pellets, nodules, and tablet. These specialty salts are used for water softening and are available in either sodium- chloride or potassium-chloride based. Potassium chloride water softening salts are used where additional levels of sodium are problematic, typically in people with hypertension. We also offer water conditioning salt products with additives to prevent problems associated with high iron environments.

Potassium Acetate for Ice and Snow Melt, Minimal environmental impact, biodegradable, low BOD, Safe for runways: meets FAA approv

The primary purpose of chemical deicing is not to melt surface ice, but rather to diffuse down through the snow and ice to break the bond between frozen precipitation and the runway. Pre wetting When using solid deicer, better melting efficiency and adhesion occurs with liquid pre wetting. For Safe Runways, Bridges, Sensitive Areas, and a Clean Environment. Benefits of Potassium Acetate for Ice and Snow Melt.

Ice Melting - Snow Melting Materials - Deicers - MAG

Whenever you see snow that is not melting on a surface, it’s safe to assume that the street received a dose of a freeze-point depression chemical that formed a brine or liquid. Freeze-point depressors are all chlorides, all glycols, and many forms of salt that are not chlorides, such as Urea and sulphates. Watch the outside temperatures and see how various freeze-point depression chemicals stop working at given temperatures.
