How Walk On Ice Works – The Science Behind


How Walk On Ice Works

Ice melt does not serve the need for people to cross the icy or snowy surface immediately. One million Americans are injured every year, and nearly 600,000 of those are hospitalized every year due to falls on ice. As per other statistics, falls account for 64% of insurance claims and 20% of all spinal cord injuries in Americans every year. In such cases, a traction agent works better than an ice melt or salt. Walk On Ice is a traction agent that does exactly that, and does it with 100% natural ingredients.

What Is Walk On Ice?

Walk On Ice is a traction agent that has 100% natural ingredients in its mix. It’s a blend of natural volcanic rock and seven other minerals which are safe for everyone and can be reused. These geo-crystals are gathered from mines and then processed to produce the final product. Different crystals are selected to maximize the absorption of the free water. These different-sized crystals bury themselves into the ice and create the “sandpaper effect”, representing a non-slip surface.

This is achieved while Walk On Ice remains 100% safe to handle, chemical-free, and safe on all surfaces, including new concrete.

It is an ISO 9001 certified non-toxic natural traction agent safe for children, pets, plants, and the environment.

How Do The Natural Crystals Of Walk On Ice Work?

Walk On Ice has a two-way effect. The carefully crafted formula contains primarily two types of granules- which we call ‘suckers’ and ‘grippers’.

First, the suckers absorb the liquid layer of water on the surface of the ice that causes slips. Then the grippers hook themselves into the ice, creating a stable non-skid surface to travel on by car or by foot. It provides friction and mattifies the surface. Thus, providing a stable surface on which you can drive safely or take your children and pets for a walk without fear of slipping and falling.

Ice Traction On Snow & Ice

Walk On Ice uses this collaborative approach to ensure instant traction on any snowy or icy surface without using any harmful chemicals or salts. It’s a more practical solution for slippery surfaces that is cost-effective and environmentally friendly.

Unlike other traction agents that include dangerous chemicals and corrosive salts that can demolish concrete walls, parking lots, and driveways, it does not harm your property.

And unlike kitty litter, which was not designed to be a traction agent, Walk On Ice does not leave any residue on your shoes or tires. Therefore, it is a mess-free chemical-free solution for adding instant traction.
