Calcium Chloride

Our warehouses are strategically located to support the North East and provide inventory distribution to points west where snow and ice are challenges that affect large population centers.

Calcium chloride dry products are commercially available as 77-87% CaCl2 flake, 74-96% CaCl2 pellets, 80% powder, and, 77% calcium chloride nuggets.  Please contact us for MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) or Certificate of Analysis on any of the calcium chloride snow melt products we supply to the marketplace.

We package calcium chloride typically in one of three ways:

50-pound bags shipped on pallets (minimum orders required)
2,000- and 2,205-pound bags called super sacks or “FIBCs” (flexible intermediate bulk containers)

Calcium chloride has long been proven as a professional grade snow and ice melter. It consistently delivers safe surfaces for commercial and residential building owners and facilities managers without damaging granite steps, tile entrance ways, or sensitive environmentally friendly landscape features and surrounding vegetation. provides a reliable supply, consistent quality, timely response, leading technical service and, exceptional customer support for all your winter snow and ice melter requirements.

Knowledge Base

Get Great Results with Our Liquid Magnesium Chloride Melting.

 Our liquid magnesium chloride, is available in various concentrations of MgCl2 (magnesium chloride) and is commercially available 500 to 1000 gallon bulk delivery and intermediate bulk containers (called IBCs) or totes holding 200 to 300 gallons each; 55-gallon drums; and in smaller consumer packaging.

 ·Winter – Pre-wetting

Liquid magnesium chloride deicer is used to pre wet dry products, like rock salt and sand, to improve their performance. The added moisture when sprayed on dry material has several benefits, including less material used with similar performance. Moist salt sits on the surface, and “scatter” from traffic is reduced, saving material cost and benefiting the surrounding environment with less material on the shoulder of the road. The liquid magnesium activates the brining process of the salt, providing a spike in temperature, which improves the performance. You’ll also use less of the material, and you’ll find that it works at significantly lower temperatures than using straight salt without pre-wetting. When used for pre-wetting, the liquid magnesium is usually sprayed right at the spinner just before the salt scatters on the desired surface that is being treated

 ·How Our Ice Melting Products Enhance Better Salt

Consider this: 300 lbs per lane mile (10′ X 5280′) of salt is generally accepted as the starting point in most situations. By adding only 8-12 gallons (per ton of salt) of our liquids, we can reduce the application to only 200 lbs per lane mile and still maintain the exact same level of performance. This technique was first documented by the “Marquette Study” nearly 30 years ago.
