Packaged De-Icer

A Solution for Every Application

We offer a wide variety of de-icing materials in a vast number of sizes to suit your professional snow and ice management needs.

Sodium Chloride (NaCl) - Effective down to 5°F, most popular and most commonly used on highways

Magnesium Chloride (MgCl2) - Effective down to -15°F, considered "environmentally friendly"

Calcium Chloride (CaCl2) - Effective down to -25°F, recognized as the "fast-acting, premium de-icer"

Potassium Chloride (KCl) - Effective down to -15°F, works slowly but is one of the more environmentally friendly options

Acetates - Most commonly used on structural concrete, parking garages, and airports where chlorides are banned

Water Softener Salt - Used as a rock salt alternative, it's extremely safe for humans and pets

Others - There is a plethora of other compound products, but they only represent a very small portion of the market. Urea, ammonium sulfate, glycols, and formates are the most common. Additionally, there are a variety of options available that combine the different chemicals together as a powerful de-icing product.
