    Hi Quincy,

    I work for IBP in Ajax, and we are the master Distributors for MAG.
    For slightly more $ than what you are paying for the other product, you can get pure MAG which does not have the high sodium percentages that other melters do.

    Please give me a call if you would like more info. 1.800.387.5777

    I use salt treated with caliber 2000. It is supposedly non corrosive. I treat the pile myself and i would figure it may cost me about $3 per 40kg bag and I charge about 50$ per bag. If you are making only 10$ per bag to go out in the ice and cold you definately need to look at other options.

    peewee, your right, but i count the bags not the customer if you know what i mean!! However it should be materials x 3 to get a decent profit.
