White De-Icing Salt
Unlike rock salt, white salt is a marine salt, harvested by evaporating sea water, leaving behind a cleaner product.
White de-icing salt is extensively used for de-icing roads, pathways and car parks. Its purer salt content reduces muddy residue, making it ideal for outside homes, offices and business premises.
Salt works by lowering the freezing point of water, dependant upon the amounts used. Rock salt effectively works down to -10oC. It can also be used as a preventative measure to help prevent snow settling.
De-icing salt has low environmental impact when used responsibly. The effect on plants is varied, dependant upon the various plants salt tolerance.
