Ice melt is usually a blend of sodium chloride, magnesium chloride pellets and calcum chloride pelletes. Ice melt is also represented in the form of flakes, one example being industrial blue ice melt. The flakes make for an instand melting power. How does it work? Ice melts work by attracting moisture to form a liquid brine to generate heat, therefore causing the ice to melt.
Rock salt, a.k.a Halite, is the mineral form of sodium chloride. Rock salt works down to 5°F and helps provide instant traction on snow or ice. The solution in rock salt flows under the ice and allows it to break off the pavement.
