Ice Slicer®

An environmentally friendly, granular deicer, breaking the bond of snow and ice from roadways, walkways, driveways and parking lots

These products outperform white salt at all temperatures by creating better traction and reducing corrosion, while also eliminating the need for sand. Ice Slicer products can be used as a stand-alone product or blended with sand to expedite snow and ice melt and enhance traction.

Ice Slicer products’ unique blend of natural chlorides outperforms liquid anti-icing chemicals and rock salt.

Ice Slicer granular ice melt is a homogenous (not blended) product containing naturally occurring minerals, such as: Complex Chlorides (magnesium, calcium, sodium, and potassium chloride), Sulfur, Iron, Iodine, Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Phosphorous, and 50+ trace minerals. Ice Slicer contains all-natural corrosion inhibitors and environmental buffers crystallized within each granule, not simply sprayed on the surface. Ice Slicer products melt down ice and snow to 5°F, a full 17° lower than regular road salt. Ice Slicer ice melt’s “reddish” color not only accelerates ice melt by absorbing 50% more of the sun’s radiant energy than white deicing products, it also signals to motorists that roads have been treated. Ice Slicer products require fewer applications resulting in reduced amounts of chlorides introduced into the environment. Since Ice Slicer products deliver enhanced traction, the need for sand is eliminated, there by significantly reducing sediment loading on roads and in nearby streams.

Ice Slicer products have been approved by the PNS as a qualified product.

Mineral Melt®

A supreme, medium-grade granular deicer engineered to cut through ice much faster than any other product of its kind

Each high quality homogeneous chloride crystal contains a mix of magnesium chloride, calcium chloride, potassium chloride, sodium chloride, and more than 15 trace minerals. These ingredients pack the powerful punch you need to quickly and efficiently make roads, parking lots, and walkways safe. Mineral Melt can be used just about anywhere, including:

  • Roadways
  • Parking lots
  • Walkways
  • Driveways
  • Stairways
  • Loading docks

In a performance study conducted by the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MNDOT), Mineral Melt produced ice free roads quicker and better than similar deicer products.Operators reported positive results including easier brine production, and ease of use. It was noted that Mineral Melt “stayed in place and on target” and did not bounce and scatter.  Product usage was reduced by as much at 31% and project costs were reduced by as much as 34% compared to standard coarse grade rock salt.In addition to its outstanding performance, Mineral Melt is also more environmentally friendly than other products.  Since fewer applications are needed to achieve results and brine making is efficient, fewer chlorides and less waste are released into the environment.

SOS® Treated Salt

Deicing salt enhanced with Magnesium Chloride (MgCl2)

Available in the Mid-Atlantic region, SOS Treated Salt combines the benefits of liquid magnesium chloride with white salt used for deicing.

  • Permits the use of salt at lower temperatures
  • Increases the speed and effectiveness of salt
  • Reduces the effects of corrosion
  • Aids in the prevention of freezing or “clumping”
  • Reduced bounce and scatter
  • Diminishes leaching in stockpiles
