Spreading sodium chloride on roads to prevent ice from forming is the first key step to guaranteeing road safety during critical winter months. In addition to this preventive function, salt significantly helps with the removal of any subsequent snowfall, preventing it from sticking to the road surface and turning into ice.
Unlike sea salt, the rock salt we sell is a type of coarse salt which is 99% dry and free from moisture, with various grain sizes, and consequently a longer lasting action. It works at temperatures above -5°C, under high atmospheric humidity, and is even effective in smaller amounts. The hardness and dryness of its crystals provide a good mechanical action that stimulates the melting of ice.
