Magnesium chloride (MgCl2) occurs naturally in the ocean and in some ancient sea beds around the world. In North America, it has been found in the brine of the Great Salt Lake in Utah. Here we harvest magnesium chloride, using only the sun, wind and gravity, through our environmentally friendly solar evaporation process.
It is also the best deicer for sidewalks, driveways, and parking lots, because it is less corrosive and gentle on concrete and vegetation. Its pet-safe characteristics make it ideal for home ice melting use.
We enhance several of our ice melt blend products with magnesium chloride.
Salt, or sodium chloride, occurs naturally all over the Earth, and it has even been found in meteors and on Mars.
The Earth’s ocean water is 2.7 percent salt, and huge underground deposits of solid salt are located in many locations around the world. There is so much salt found underground and in saline waters that the supply is almost inexhaustible. In fact, geologists estimate that salt from the United States alone could provide all the salt the world needs for the next 100,000 years.
Salt is a proven and economical tool in combating snow and ice on sidewalks, driveways and parking lots.
Through the responsible transformation of the earth’s natural resources, we help keep people safer while being committed to our stewardship of the environment.
