About Rock Salt
Highway Rock Salt for Ice Melting and Snow Melting
Sodium chloride, or halite, is an ionic compound with the formula NaCl. Sodium chloride is the salt most responsible for the salinity of the ocean and of the extracellular fluid of many multi-cellular organisms. 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.
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.
