White de-icing salt is a purer form of ‘grit’. This de-icing salt has a lower freezing temperature than water, therefore, has the ability to prevent ice developing on public walkways, roads, car parks etc.
The benefits of white salt are that it is a cleaner product. It does not leave a dirty residue after use and will not stain paving. Overall, white de-icing salt can be a more aesthetically pleasing form of grit, in particular around homes and workplaces.
