EcoTraction- Ice Gripper Effective to -50C – 5 lb Bag

EcoTraction is the pet/kid/concrete safe ice gripper that works better than sand and is good for vegetation. Its made of all natural volcanic minerals. The design of EcoTraction gives you better grip then sand so you can use a lot less. One cup of EcoTraction will cover a parking space.

It’s a great alternative for harmful ice melters and makes it an essential for winter driving if you get stuck.

Description

What is EcoTraction?
EcoTraction is manufactured from a hydrothermal volcanic mineral, and is a member of a special group of minerals known as zeolite. Simply put, EcoTraction was formed as superheated mineral-rich water, circulating in areas of volcanic activity, which crystallized and was deposited in small “vesicles” or holes within massive sequences of lava and other rocks. This process takes millions of years. Over time, a porous, negatively-charged, high surface area mineral formed with unique characteristics that make it a highly-effective traction agent that has actual environmental benefits.
How does EcoTraction provide such effective traction on ice and snow?
Each EcoTraction granule has microscopic channels that absorb the slippery layer of water found on ice, which allows it to quickly embed itself into ice and snow. That coupled with each granule’s large surface area, multiple contact points, and rigid structure, makes EcoTraction the ultimate traction agent for slippery winter walkways and driving areas. EcoTraction is also the only product to provide “instant grip” during dangerous freezing rain storms.
How cost-effective is EcoTraction?
Research showed that one cup of EcoTraction will safely cover one average parking space (144 square feet area), making EcoTraction the most cost-effective solution on the market. With the added bonus of zero damaging effects as well as the opportunity to re-use it for multiple other applications, EcoTraction is real value for the money.
Why is EcoTraction a better choice than sand or cat litter?
EcoTraction is superior to other traction agents like sand or cat litter for several reasons: • EcoTraction offers 35% better traction than sand using much less • Tracks less than sand due to its embedding power • A softer stone than sand so will eventually disappear under repeated pedestrian traffic, as well making it less likely to scratch indoor flooring • EcoTraction is 50% lighter than sand and smaller than gravel so it is unlikely to accidentally chip a windshield • Does not contain carcinogenic crystalline silica dust like sand • Cat litter is made up of bentonite clay and eventually turns to ‘mush’ on snow or ice
Where can I use EcoTraction?
Simply use EcoTraction as a winter salt substitute anywhere around your home or business where people walk or drive on slippery ice and snow. Areas to focus on are sidewalks, driveways, stairs, patios, decks, play areas, landings, pet areas, parks, trails, and parking lots. In the spring, simply sweep EcoTraction onto your lawn or garden, or re-use it for multiple other household applications.
What is the best way to apply EcoTraction?
Dry, Powdery Snow Start by removing the snow and if walking conditions are still slippery, spread a thin layer of EcoTraction so that the walking area is visibly covered.

Sleet, Freezing Rain As soon as ice begins to build up, apply EcoTraction to ensure safe walking conditions. Its absorbent quality will provide incredible traction instantly. Repeated applications might be necessary as EcoTraction gets covered by additional ice layers. However, EcoTraction does have the ability to stay on top of ice even after some melting.

Wet, Heavy Snow Remove snow with a shovel and then lightly apply EcoTraction. When more than two inches accumulate, shovel excess snow and reapply if necessary. Note that much of the EcoTraction should remain embedded into the bottom ice layer and stay there in spite of shoveling. Accumulations of Hardened Snow and Ice EcoTraction is the perfect product for areas where snow and ice have been left naturally, packed down, and there is no intention to remove it. Simply sprinkle EcoTraction directly on top of the hard-packed snow and reapply lightly if necessary after subsequent snow and ice storms. As slippery conditions are created in the spring from melting during the day to freezing at night, EcoTraction will provide constant traction as each layer of snow that melts exposes the previous application.

Can I use EcoTraction with ice melters?
EcoTraction is uniquely designed to be an excellent complement to ice melters. Firstly, EcoTraction will prevent slips and falls by absorbing the slippery brine that can be left over from incomplete ice melting and which is prone to dangerous re-freezing. EcoTraction’s sponge-like structure will also absorb some of the white residue caused by salt and ice melters, thereby reducing unsightly stains and reducing its damage to lawns and gardens. Finally, EcoTraction has the unique ability to absorb sodium and any heavy metals leached from diluted road salt, thereby also reducing salt’s destructive environmental impact on our precious waterways.
