Naturally harvested from the Dead Sea, MAG®is a premier de-icer and premium ice melt product that provides the best performance. It also has the least impact on surrounding areas, which helps to greatly reduce the adverse effects typically associated with chemicals used to combat ice and snow hazards.
Magnesium chloride pellets are a spherical shape and work very well with ice melt spreaders. They do tend to roll like small BBs, which in some applications is an advantage and in others, a disadvantage.
The pellet or spherical shape provides performance benefits as their interface with ice and snow is more concentrated and allows them to “bore” into and down under the icy surface creating a brine underneath. This makes for easier mechanical clearing by helping to loosen the bond of ice to the surface that is being cleared.
NATURALLY CHILDREN & PET FRIENDLY
When it comes to children and pets, you want peace of mind. MAG De-icer pellets are very low toxicity (almost three times less toxic than common table salt and eight times less toxic than calcium chloride) makes them much safer to use around residential areas and workplaces.
Unlike some ice melters, MAG Pellets won’t burn or irritate the skin. As we all know, wintry weather won’t keep dogs or cats inside. With MAG Pellets, there’s less worry when pets lick their paws when they return from a walk. MAG Pellets are actually used in some farm feedstocks as a mineral supplement.
SAFER FOR CONCRETE
Protect your walkways! The use of most ice melters can result in damage to concrete sidewalks, driveways, and walkways. When you choose a premium ice melter that is safe for concrete you no longer have to worry about the damaging effects. Independent tests conducted by the National Research Council’s Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) show that other products caused significantly more chipping and scaling than MAG Pellets.
SAFER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
Each spring, the runoff from melting ice and snow runs harmful chlorides into lakes, rivers, and reservoirs. When using MAG Pellets, chloride contamination in surface waters is reduced because environmentally friendly MAG Pellets contain at least one-third fewer chlorides than either calcium chloride or sodium chloride. MAG pellets are salt-free and are actually even safe for your plants and delicate landscapes. Magnesium is a common ingredient in most fertilizers used.
Magnesium is extracted from the Dead Sea by the natural evaporation of seawater and a simple refinement process making it the safer choice as it is 100% natural.
Fun fact, The concentration of magnesium chloride in the southern portion of the Dead Sea is as high as 20%! A Sea of Magnesium. This has also resulted in the Dead Sea water having an extraordinary mineral composition that makes the water therapeutic for swimmers and has created a bucket list vacation spot.
