Magnesium chloride. Road salt.

Magnesium chloride is a highly hygroscopic agent, applicable in many industries, road construction and private farms. Magnesium chloride works effectively during very high frosts, reaching even - 50 ° C (guaranteed effect up to - 32 ° C), for example, ordinary road salt works effectively only up to -6 ° C. After pouring magnesium chloride to the surface, snow and the ice melts leaving behind a clean and safe to use surface.

Magnesium chloride technical - advantages:

The agent that effectively melts ice and snow:

It melts ice and snow even at -32 degrees Celsius

works immediately after application

it leaves a clean surface after itself, it does not discolour it

environmentally friendly product - it is biodegradable, there is no trace of it in the spring

the surface does not freeze again for a long period of time

does not damage surfaces made of concrete, asphalt

can be mixed with road salt to reduce costs and improve the efficiency of ordinary road salt

Magnesium chloride is also used for drying rooms

It binds dust and dust from the air

It softens the soil.


Magnesium chloride is up to 10 times more effective than ordinary road salt (sodium chloride). In the case of an ordinary road salt, we need an average of 18.3 kg for de-icing 100 m2, ie: 0.183 kg / m2. In the case of magnesium chloride, the consumption is between 1 and 4 kg, an average of about 2.5 kg per 100 m2, with a capacity of 0.025 kg / m2.
