Road Salt

Road salt has been the back bone of the deicer industry for years. It’s the most cost effective option to keep roads safe during harsh winter driving conditions. Road salt works by lowering the freezing point of water via a process termed freezing point depression. Ice forms when the temperature of water reaches 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degrees Celsius). When you add salt, that temperature drops: A 10-percent salt solution freezes at 20 F (-6 C), and a 20-percent solution freezes at 2 F (-16 C). On a roadway, this means that if you sprinkle salt on the ice, you can melt it. The salt dissolves into the liquid water in the ice and lowers its freezing point. Ag Express, Inc.’s Road Salt is enhanced with magnesium chloride to help clear roads faster and more effectively. Less bounce and scatter is also an added benefit.
