Our Brown De-Icing Rock Salt is traditionally used on driveways, footpaths, roads and pathways in the UK winter to help clear snow and ice to reduce slips and vehicles getting stuck. The product includes sand and dirt particles to help stick to the road and is treated with an anti-caking agent.
The rock salt we supply is mined in the UK and graded to BS3247 (Highways Agency standards), which means it is crushed and screened to contain granuals between 1mm and 6mm in size. It contains an anti caking agent to prevent the salt from forming lumps, this ensures it is free flowing and is therefore suitable for use in grit spreaders.
