What is Hi-Way Rock Salt? Sodium chloride in the commercial form is known as rock salt. It is harvested naturally and can be found all over the world. Responsible for the salinity of the ocean, sodium chloride, NaCl, is one of the most abundant minerals found on the planet. Responsible for the extracellular fluid of several multi-cellular organisms, salt sustains life.
When is it needed? It also has remained the key industry standard for winter weather due to its innate ability to melt ice down to temperatures of -6° F (-21° C). It is important to note that the temperature reading is not what you will find on the weather channel, but instead, the temperature in question is the pavement temperature. So even as the outside air is warming up, the pavement can still be frozen, which can create a dangerous coating of ice.
