Brown Rock Salt For Sale

Greenvale sells safety related products in addition to gardening and construction products, like our brown rock salt for sale. Our brown rock salt supplies, which is used to make icy roads, streets, and sidewalks less slippery is one of our main safety products.

What is Brown Grit Salt?

Brown grit salt is a mixture of White Rock Salt and Grit Sand. Although some forms of salt are naturally brown in colour, Brown Gritting Salt gets its colour from the addition of grit.

White Rock Salt is called halite by scientists; it is the crystallized form of sodium chloride. It is found in nature with other deposit minerals such as sulfates, halides, and borates. This mineral is mined from the ground. Then it is processed to remove most of the other minerals, leaving mainly sodium chloride, which is then ground into a coarse form called Rock Salt.

Grit Sand, the other component of Brown Gritting Salt, is formed mainly of quartz which is crushed to make sand. Grit Sand is useful for adding to foundations and gardens. When mixed with soil it can help improve drainage. When mixed with Rock Salt, Grit Sand provides coarseness for traction, the very thing needed during icy conditions.

Our brown rock salt for sale can make the ice melt and prevent more ice from forming.

The Uses Of Our Brown Rock Salt Supplies

Salt has been used throughout much of human history as both a food preservative and taste enhancer. It was once very valued and used for trade because it was difficult to mine prior to the Industrial Revolution.

Our brown rock salt supplies are ideal to use during icy conditions. Because a mixture of water and salt has a lower freezing point than water, a salt mixture can melt ice which is near 0° C, This helpful effect is called the freezing-point depression. Mixing salt with grit gives you salt's ice fighting properties as well as better traction from the grit.

Although you can certainly mix Rock Salt and Grit together, it is so convenient to have it in a premixed form. There is no guessing about the proper amounts to use.

Both municipalities and individuals use our brown rock salt for sale for de-icing purposes.

Greenvale's brown grit salt is available in tonne bags (1000 KG), large bags (25 KG), and bulk. Our brown rock salt supplies are also available in multiple packs of large bags: 10 or 20 bags to the pack for convenient use around homes and small businesses.
