American Rock Salt

Another winter of 2015/2016 is approaching fast, pretty soon beautiful and colorful autumn foliage will be covered by white powder and ice. Before you know it, you’ll be pale, cranky and cold. The sun and its warmth will be a warm, distant memory. But don’t panic, we at Sparta Block like to think ahead.

To help our customers survive harsh winter environment, we stock pail the rock salt and calcium chloride at our yard in Sparta, NJ. Unlike our competitors, all of the rock salt we sell comes from the United States – from the mine located south of Rochester, New York.

American Rock Salt Halite















All roads, sidewalks, paths will need ice melts soon. Rock salt and calcium chloride is the best method  for de-icing roads. The rock salt applied to icy roads in the winter is the same substance that comes out of your salt shaker. The only difference is the size. Rock salt is the material that has crystallized in larger pieces, whereas table salt has been ground up and pulverized to a more or less uniform size distribution.

American Rock Salt Halite is available in 50 lb. bags. It is quick acting and has greater melting power than most products on the market today.
American Rock Salt Halite begins melting ice rapidly and keeps melting it for an extensive period of time. This is made possible through multiple-sized crystals. The smallest crystals dissolve quickly while the larger crystals last longer, reducing the amount of rock salt needed to get the job done.

American Rock Salt is easy to apply. It may be safely used on most surfaces ranging from blacktop, wood, stone, and gravel to properly cured air-entrained concrete.
