Overview

Liquid IBG Magic (or Magic Minus Zero™) is a proprietary and patented formula of magnesium chloride combined with an agricultural by-product of the brewing industry. When the liquid IBG Magic is sprayed onto common rock salt, the result is IBG Magic Salt.

The liquid IBG Magic is non-toxic, biodegradable and has a corrosion index lower than distilled water. IBG Magic Salt™ is safe to use on concrete, is non-corrosive, does not harm curbside grassed areas or plants and continues to melt ice in below zero temperatures.

IBG Magic Salt™ is a highly effective ice melting granular product sold as bagged material for walkways or used in bulk form for roadway and parking facility applications.

Saves Money, Time and Labor

Sand/salt applications are reduced by 30% to 50% and the need for additional traction (sand) is eliminated in most circumstances. IBG Magic Salt has a residual effect, which reduces the number of applications required for effective ice control. It also prevents snow & ice from bonding to pavement, stopping black ice and reducing the likelihood of slip and falls. IBG Magic Salt reduces spring clean up time and cost by eliminating sand deposits during the winter.

Working Temperature Below Zero

IBG Magic Salt works to below zero; regular rock salt is stops working at 18°F. This is a net 18 degree gain in working temperature, similar to calcium chloride, without the adverse effects.

Non Corrosive

Unlike plain rock salt or calcium chloride, independent tests show IBG Magic Salt to be non-corrosive. It will not damage steel doors, thresholds, equipment, carpets, flooring or concrete.

Environmentally Friendly

Liquid IBG Magic-0 is completely biodegradable and IBG Magic Salt releases less chloride into the environment than either salt or calcium chloride. Both are safe around shrubs and turf, people, pets and equipment. It is the FIRST de-icing product to receive the EPA “Design for the Environment” badge, indicating that the DfE scientific review team has screened each ingredient for potential human health and environmental effects and that the product contains only those ingredients that pose the least concern among chemicals in their class. IBG

Magic Salt eliminates the undesirable volume of sand deposits on roadways, walkways and in beds and turf.
