Ice Melt Rock Salt Grit

Rock Salt Grit, Salt-based Ice Melt, Non Salt De-icer

How does salt work for melting ice ?

Why does salt melt ice?

Salt lowers the melting/freezing point of ice. Normally the point of ice melting is at 0oC (32F). A 10% salt solution lowers the melting point of ice to -6oC and a 20% salt solutions lowers the ice melting point to -16oC
Certified to British Standard BS3247:2011

Rock Salt Grit  /  Road Salt  /  Road Grit  /  Gritting Salt

Rock Salt is the most natural form of ice melt. Delivered straight from the mines under Belfast Lough to you. This is what your see being used every year for gritting the roads although we supply a finer grade than used by Roads Service.
Grit's brownish colour and fine, gravel-like consistency is very effective at melting ice and providing grip on slippery roads.

Rock Salt Grit is preferred for providing better traction under-foot and under the wheels of vehicles.

Available in 25kg bags. Low single bag prices or pallet quantities (1 ton - 40 x 25kg bags).
Free delivery - minimum order quantity may apply depending on location

White Salt Ice Melt  /  Clean White Salt De-icer

White salt ice melt de-icer is a clean white salt used for scattering on pathways, roads, playgrounds etc. Our white salt is a marine salt and is imported from Europe.

Our European white salt de-icer is cleaner than rock salt grit and just as effective.

Available in 25kg bags, 1 ton bags, pallets of 40 x 25kg bags or loose in 28 or 30 tonne loads. Low single bag prices or pallet/ton quantities.

Non-Salt Ice Melt  /  Synthetic Ice Melt  /  Chemical Ice Melt  /  Magic Ice Thaw


This 'non-salt' ice melt is a Calcium Chloride flake formulation exothermic de-icer. It is safer to use around vegetation than salt de-icers. It is less corrosive and safer for use on concrete containing rebar and around steel structures. This is one of the preferred ice melters for airports. It melts ice and snow approximately 6 times faster than regular salt and has an ice melting point effective range as low as -45oC.

Available in 25kg bags. Low single unit prices or pallet (40 bags, 1 ton) quantities.
Free delivery - minimum order quantity may apply depending on location

As with all de-icing products you need to carry out your own risk assessments. All de-icing products can have negative effects on concrete, tarmac, metals, plants, animals and humans. Some de-icing products have a less damaging effect but you still need to read the COSHH and MSDS information provided and make your own decisions as to which product is best for you, which delivery method is best for application, what protection is needed for operatives, storage procedures, the level of acceptable corrosion etc.
