Safer Than Salt® Commercial contains fertilizer potassium chloride as well as a liquid magnesium chloride/CMA (calcium magnesium acetate) coating to help “jump start” the melting process. Its safety rose color coating makes it easy to gauge application, thus protecting the environment as well as providing positive proof that an ice melter is in use.
Magnesium Chloride is considered (by some) as the best total ice-melter that is less corrosive on metal surfaces, protects concrete from spalling, is less toxic and environmentally as safe as Calcium Chloride and much less corrosive than Sodium Chloride (rock salt).
American Rock Salt Halite is fast acting and has superior melting power. American Rock Salt Halite begins melting ice quickly and keeps melting it for an extended period of time. This is made possible through multiple-sized crystals. The smallest crystals dissolve quickly while the larger crystals last longer, reducing the amount of rock salt needed to get the job done. Easy to apply. It may be safely used on most surfaces ranging from blacktop, wood, stone, and gravel to properly cured air-entrained concrete. Sold in 50lb bags.
