Magnesium Chloride & Deicing Salt Companies
The Yellow Pages
The image just to the right is a clipping from my own Yellow Pages directory. It is published by Cincinnati Bell Directory, Inc. - a great company that provides me with a dial tone all the time! A larger ad quickly tells you that Cinti Wholesale Supply, and Koehl, Ed Inc. both carry deicing salts. They might carry magnesium chloride, but surprise - they don't! A smaller company with a minor listing - Ewers, Harry & Sons, Inc. - is the only company in Cincinnati, Ohio, that carries the newer deicing salt. You probably would have passed over them when trying to call around for magnesium chloride.
Open your Yellow Pages and start calling. It may require some patience on your part but you just may find that 'diamond in the rough' company like Harry Ewers & Sons, Inc. in your city or town.
Sources of Magnesium Chloride
To the best of my knowledge, magnesium chloride is only produced offshore. The primary source is the Dead Sea located in the Middle East. Those of you who remember your world geography should recognize this location - the lowest dry land below sea level. This giant drainage basin collects water and concentrates the mineral content within the sea as the surface water evaporates. The Dead Sea is rich in minerals - one of them being magnesium chloride. A company there - the Dead Sea Works - diverts water to evaporation basins and lets Mother Nature produce the raw salt. The company refines the magnesium chloride and then ships it to the United States and other countries that want to use this friendly deicing salt.
