Salt / Sand / Bagged Products


Image of Metlco Rock Salt

Rock Salt 20kg Bag

Road salt works by lowering the freezing point of water -- a process termed “freezing point depression”. In a nutshell, the salt breaks into its component ions in a small amount of liquid water. The added particles make it more difficult for the water to freeze into ice, lowering the freezing point of the water. So, for road salt to work, there needs to be a tiny bit of liquid water. This is part of the reason why road salt is not effective in extremely cold weather when water would freeze too easily. Road salt is used to control snow and ice. As the temperature drops, salt's effectiveness slows to the point that when you get down near -10 degrees (C) and below, salt is barely working.

Bulk Salt - Rock Salt

Rock salt is the most cost-effective product available for removing snow and ice. It’s easy to use, store and apply, and its effectiveness at keeping parking lots and sidewalks clear makes it the cornerstone in most snow removal programs. It can be used alone or with an additive, depending upon weather conditions.

Bulk Salt - Premium Treated Salt


When temperatures are below -10 degrees (C) road salt is mixed with catalysts in order for the salt to brine and to work effectively. Using liquid to "pre-wet" conventional solid de-icers also reduces bounce and scatter, and environmental emissions while increasing performance and service levels. Using the power of magnesium chloride, liquids are used by leading salt companies to significantly improve the working temperature of salt and accelerate the brining process for faster melting. Treated salt is coloured blue to aid in product distribution when applying. This premium product will be effective to -21 degrees (C) and will have longer lasting results than un-treated road salt.

Better for the environment – our magnesium chloride is approved for organic production as a crop fertilizer and soil amendment by OMRI in the US and Canada. Treated Salt is twice as effective as salt, and 80% less corrosive.


Bulk Salt is sold by the yard. Increments of 1/2 yards only.

ProMelt Mag Liquid Logo

ProMelt Mag Liquid - 1000 Litre Tote

Using liquid to "pre-wet" conventional solid de-icers also reduces bounce and scatter, and environmental emissions while increasing performance and service levels.

Safe for the environment - our magnesium chloride is safe for the environment and approved for organic production as crop fertilizer or soil amendment by OMRI (the Organic Materials Review Institute) in the United States and Canada.
