Magnesium chloride eco road salt In autumn, it is an alternative to sodium chloride and calcium chloride for road maintenance. By absorbing moisture, it produces a relatively large amount of heat, so it actively defrosts ice surfaces. Used on the road in an amount of almost one to ten compared to traditional road salt. The recommended amount of sodium chloride – traditional road salt – is about 18.3 kg per 100 m2, thus we need about 0.183 kg for deicing 1 m2. Meanwhile, we dose magnesium chloride in quantities of approx. 2.5 kg per 100 m2, i.e. approx. 0.025 kg per m2. It works up to minus fifty degrees Celsius. In real terms, however, its use already at minus twenty degrees Celsius requires time to initiate the reaction. Heat is released during the absorption of water. When the humidity lowers by the temperature right after application, very slow heating occurs, when the heat is sufficient, moisture will appear, which will fuel the reaction. It can take up to several hours to reach a critical point when the reaction begins to bring real effects at temperatures below minus twenty degrees. Magnesium chloride does not degrade the environment, it is not harmful to humans and animals. It does not cause vehicle corrosion and does not deposit on shoes. It has no effect on the road surface.
