Walk On Ice Is Made From Natural Crystals? [Answer Inside]

Traction For Walking On Ice

Who doesn’t like winters? After all, it’s called “the most wonderful time of the year”. Like every beautiful thing, winter months have a dark side too- the slippery and icy sidewalk in winters can be challenging. Walking on thin ice can result in dangerous slip-and-fall accidents. Therefore, clearing snow and providing safe access to the driveway for your family and visitors becomes your responsibility. 

Although rock salt and ice melt is a popular choice of many, it contains harmful chemicals.

Let us talk about why you should stop using chemical ice melt and rock salt immediately. 

  • Using salt to melt ice, pits the cement used for our walkways, steps, and other concrete areas. Once the cement pits, it will eventually crack or cause potholes on your surface. Moreover, salt is slightly acidic, and the acidity breaks down the chemical bonds essential for the concrete’s strength. Another thing that makes the situation worse is that most concrete in driveways is reinforced with steel. And salt corrodes steel. 

  • When salt comes in contact with metal in your patio furniture, it can corrode and rust it. 

  • Rock salt or ice melt can enter water supplies by percolating down through the ground or running off from roads and parking lots into water reservoirs and shallow wells.

Natural Way Of Adding Traction-

Walking on thin ice can be dangerous. However, if you’re looking for ways to access your slippery driveway immediately, traction agents can be of great help.

Organic Traction Agents-

Organic traction items like sand, wood shavings, sawdust, and kitty litter are less harmful and cost-efficient as compared to salts. But these traction agents are not only less effective in making the surface non-slippery, but they also create a lot of mess later. Excessive amounts of sand and sawdust can accumulate in drains and drainage areas. It’s critical to sweep them up after storms, or you’ll have problems in the spring.

Walk On Ice-

Walk on ice is a traction agent. It consists of all-natural minerals and chemicals that are completely safe. It is devoid of salts and substances that are damaging to the body and surfaces. It can be safely used on all types of surfaces like decking, new concrete, pavers, parking areas, and so on. 

It creates a skid-free, slip-free surface on ice and snow for walking, pet, and car traffic, as well as other applications. It works at any temperature and with any thickness of the ice. It is highly absorbent and abrasive, making it ideal for cleaning up messes caused by animal feces, body fluids, oils, paints, and other viscous substances. 

Non-corrosive and non-conductive – won’t harm your vehicle or furniture in the backyard. The packing of Walk-in ice makes it handy and easy to carry, even in a handbag or gloves compartment. You can use it anywhere, giving you instant protection from slip and fall.
