Mega Melt™ Halite Crystals
Packaged halite rock salt
Halite crystals is produced at our Lyons, Kansas salt mine. This fast-acting, snow and ice melter is economical and easy to apply. Halite crystals leaves no oily residue.
Halite crystals is the naturally occurring mineral form of sodium chloride, or NaCL. Like many of Central Salt's other deicing salts, the isometric crystals are extracted from one of the Midwest's richest beds of evaporates. Mechanized mining employs mobile equipment and conveyors to blast, load and move the crystals to the surface. Particles are then crushed and screened to specifications to provide halite crystal's signature melting properties.
Sodium chloride melts ice at temperatures down to its eutectic point of -6° F (-21° C). And because the most important variable of a deicer's effectiveness is not air temperature but pavement temperature, rock salt continues to be an effective deicer in many US locations through most of the winter season.
Mega Melt™ Halite Crystals is available in 50-pound poly bags from our mine in Lyons, KS and warehouses located in Chicago, IL; Cincinnati, OH; and Pittsburgh, PA. We ship halite crystals throughout the Midwest and Eastern US as well.
