Traction Sand

Sand is a granular material composed of finely divided rock and mineral particles. It is defined by size, being finer than gravel (larger than 2 mm) and coarser than silt (smaller than 0.063 mm). Sand can also exist as loose particles or compacted by pressure into sandstone.

Traction sand is better for large areas where you need a lot of traction. Sand tends to be more expensive than kitty litter, and it’s also easy to clean up if it gets on your floors. Kitty litter is better in smaller areas such as your garage or basement because it makes less mess and can be disposed of easily.

There Are Disadvantages To Using Traction Sand As Well.

The first is that you have to be careful of the type of sand you use. You want the right consistency, not too fine or not too coarse.

The second disadvantage is that it gets messy, especially when it rains and the snow melts. The sand will get everywhere and make your car look less than presentable for spring cleaning day!

You’ll want to avoid using it around pools or other wet areas where accidents may happen.


Traction Magic

Traction Magic comprises natural volcanic rock and seven other minerals that are 100% environment-friendly and can be used on your driveway or snow-covered roof

It is not messy, does not stick to the shoes, does not block sewers or gutters, and seamlessly mixes with soil. It acts as a conditioner for plants as well. With Traction Magic you don’t even need your favorite best shoes for ice.

Traction Magic helps to build excellent traction on any slippery surface because they instantly absorb water and allow the grippers to lock into the ice, creating a non-skid surface.

The best part- it is cost-effective too. It is used in 1/8 of what you would use of sand or kitty litter.
