De-icing salt Q & A's
What is de-icing salt made of?
De-icing salt is a powerful mix of salts, featuring Sodium Chloride (white salt), magnesium chloride, potassium chloride, and calcium chloride. When these salts encounter water or ice, they unite to lower the freezing point, effectively melting ice and ensuring surfaces stay safe. Think of them as a winter superhero squad—Sodium Chloride leads the charge, while magnesium, potassium, and calcium chlorides team up to combat frost on paths and sidewalks.

What are the different types of de-icing salts?
Different types of de-icing salts are as follows:
What type of salt makes ice melt faster?
Sea salt takes the lead in melting ice quickly due to its composition, including halite, sodium, chloride, sulfate, and magnesium. Check out our White De-icing Salt, sourced from Marine salt harvested from sustainable sources around the Mediterranean Sea.
What is the difference between white and brown de-icing salt?
White De-icing Salt, sourced from evaporated seawater, is cleaner and purer than Brown Rock Salt, which is mined. White salt is sourced from various countries, providing a cleaner alternative.
What salt is best for de-icing roads?
Sodium Chloride (NaCl) is the champion for de-icing roads and highways, being the most commonly used substance for its effectiveness and availability.
What is the most effective ice melt in lower temperatures?
Calcium Chloride Ice Melt takes the crown as the most effective in lower temperatures than other ice-melt compounds.
Why should you choose white de-icing salt compared to brown?
White salt has a distinct advantage - it doesn't leave the messy residue that traditional brown salt (grit) often does. Say goodbye to the aftermath of winter battles and embrace the cleanliness of white de-icing salt!
