When brown de-icing rock salt is spread on an icy surface, it dissolves in the thin layer of water formed by the melting ice. The dissolved salt lowers the freezing point of this water, preventing it from refreezing creating a slushy mixture whilst leaving a gritty residue.

The effectiveness of brown de-icing rock salt is influenced by various factors, including temperature, humidity, and the amount of salt applied. In colder temperatures, the melting process may be slower, requiring a higher concentration of salt to achieve the desired results.

Similarly, in areas with high humidity, the effectiveness of brown de-icing rock salt may be reduced, as the excess moisture can dilute the salt and hinder its ability to melt ice.

By applying the right amount of salt and considering the environmental conditions, one can ensure efficient ice and snow removal while minimizing waste and potential harm to the surrounding environment.
