What is a Brown Rock Salt Bulk Bag?

Rock salt, also known as halite, is widely used for de-icing roads, walkways, and driveways during the winter months. It works by lowering the freezing point of water, causing ice and snow to melt even at temperatures below water's normal freezing point. This process, known as freezing point depression, is crucial for maintaining safety in icy conditions.

Rock salt is coarse and irregular in shape, typically ranging from white to off-white, and is sometimes treated with anti-caking agents to prevent clumping. At Materials Market, we exclusively sell brown rock salt.

These grit salt bags are essential for municipalities, road maintenance services, and regions with heavy snowfall, helping to ensure safe walking and driving conditions during winter.


Where Is Brown Rock Salt Grit Bulk Bag Used? 

  • De-Icing: Extensively used for de-icing in cold weather conditions.
  • Large Areas: Suitable for treating car parks, roads, and driveways.
  • Paths and Walkways: Effective for making paths and walkways safe.
  • General Gritting: Used as road grit to provide traction and prevent slipping.

Brown Rock Grit Salt Application Tips

  • Pre-Treatment: Applying it before a snowstorm can prevent ice from bonding strongly to the surface.
  • Quantity: Using the correct amount is crucial. Overuse can increase environmental and infrastructural damage, while underuse may not effectively melt ice.
  • Combination with Sand: Sometimes, it's mixed with sand to improve traction and reduce the amount of salt needed.

Brown Rock Salt Bulk Bag Benefits

  • Economical: Buying in bulk is cost-effective.
  • Convenient Storage: Allows for easy and tidy storage, suitable for indoor safekeeping.
  • Ease of Spreading: Can be spread manually or with machinery, suited for both residential and commercial use.
  • Versatility: Suitable for a variety of surfaces and conditions, including ice and snow.


White Rock Salt vs Brown Rock Salt

The choice between white and brown rock salt often depends on the specific needs of the area being treated, balancing factors such as cleanliness, efficacy, and environmental impact.


Brown rock salt is sourced from subterranean salt deposits located primarily in the Cheshire region. This variety of salt is a popular choice among local authorities, council departments, and transport services for enhancing traction on icy roads. The characteristic brown hue of this salt is attributed to the natural impurities it contains, which are a result of it being extracted directly from underground mines.

In contrast, white rock salt is produced through a natural evaporation process involving sea water. This process occurs in shallow pools, where the evaporation of sea water leaves behind salt crystals. The key advantage of white rock salt lies in its purity and cleanliness.


Rock salt (brown salt) is cheaper than white salt so it is a more economical option when covering large areas.
