Putting down rock salt typically eliminates the icy and snowy conditions that you don’t want to walk and travel on but it also creates another risk, slipping and sliding on the very rock salt you put down.

DowFlake Xtra comes down in flakes, meaning it melts through snow and ice without creating an uneven surface. Once the snow and ice is gone it lays flat on the surface protecting you without creating another dangerous surface. It is because of this quality that DowFlake Xtra is the perfect ice melt for schools, businesses, nursing homes and anywhere else that has frequent foot traffic.

Determining How Much Rock Salt & Ice Melt You Need

We know that trying to determine how much rock salt you need for your property can seem overwhelming.

As one of the leading suppliers of rock salt in NJ, NY, NYC and PA we created a formula that will help you determine how much rock salt you need to cover your property.

A 50-pound bag of material will hold about 80 cups.
One cup will melt about 20 square feet of ice.

One 50-pound bag of material = 1600 square feet of ice melt.

** It is not a guarantee that this ratio is applicable to your specific rock salt/ice melt needs therefore Braen Supply cannot be held liable.

*** This conversion is only based off of the fact that the snow on top of the ice has already been shoveled.

When compared to other ice-melt materials DowFlake Xtra provides some great benefits:

  • Melts ice faster and at lower temperatures than urea and potassium chloride.
  • Instantly releases heat to start the ice-melting process. Rock salt must absorb heat from its surroundings, which delays the process.
  • With its higher concentration of calcium chloride it has 10 percent more melting power per pound than conventional flakes.
  • Meets or exceed the requirements of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO).

Melting Power

DowFlake Xtra has been found to be so effective that in the first 20 minutes of being put down at temperatures of 20°F, it melted approximately:

  • 30 percent more than magnesium chloride flakes.
  • 35 percent more than magnesium chloride.
  • 130 percent more than urea.
  • 400 percent more than potassium chloride.
