Magic SaltDe-Icing / During or After Event
Magic Salt
is a highly effective ice melting granular product that quickly acts to hard pack and bonded ice and snow quickly eliminating it from paved surfaces. Even though rock salt eventually dissolves in the melting process, the Magic Salt remains on the pavement surface and will prevent black ice from forming. Magic Salt is safe to use on concrete, is non-corrosive, does not harm curbside grassed areas or plants and continues to melt ice in below zero temperatures.
