Highway Rock Salt & Halite Crystals for Ice Melting and Snow Melting

Sodium chloride, or , is an with the . Sodium chloride is the most responsible for the salinity of the and of the of many multi-cellular . Salt (sodium chloride, NaCl) is one of the most abundant minerals found on earth. Accordingly, it’s generally inexpensive and found nearly everywhere in ample quantities for snow and ice control use.

Our salt comes in two forms:

  • Salt in the commercial form, which is known as rock salt. We sell it in bulk for deicing uses.
  • Halite crystals packaged in durable poly bags available in various sizes including 10 lbs, 12 lbs, 25 lbs, 40 lbs, 50 lbs, and 80 lbs.

Harvested by either solar evaporation of brines and seawater or by conventional mining methods, salt is literally everywhere on our planet. We use all available resources to assure you that we’ll have the salt products you need for winter road and highway maintenance, where you need them, and when you need them.

Salt remains the most cost-effective agent for combating snow and ice. Salt to melt snow is readily available, easy to store, easy to handle, and easy to spread. It can be used as an anti-icing agent (applied to bare pavement before a storm), as a pre-wetting brine to accelerate the melting properties of salt, or applied to snow pack to melt snow and ice. De icing rock salt products provide the best value and offer a wide temperature range for successful snow and ice management.

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.
