White Rock Salt

White Rock Salt

During periods of snow and ice, white rock salt is used to counter the effects of ice, resulting in safer hard surfaces to traverse.

Contrary to the popular brown rock salt which can leave surfaces with a muddy residue, white rock salt leaves a clean surface with minimal residue.

White Rock Salt

White rock salt is a marine salt which is created from the evaporation of sea water. This process of drying the white salt removes the majority of insoluble impurities, yielding close to 99.9% sodium chloride.

Due to the considerably lower percentage of impurities in white rock salt, it leaves surfaces much cleaner and aesthetically appealing, with none of the muddy residue which is characteristic of brown rock salt.

Rock salt effectively reduces the freezing point of water, preventing ice from forming and melting snow as it falls. It can be applied before snow falls or ice forms as a preventative or applied afterwards to melt the ice to make the surface safe for people and vehicles to use.
