or drive – like entrances, staircases, walkways,
yards, parking lots, verandas etc. It is also convenient
to keep in your car.
• Clean and easy to apply – the perfect
solution to dangerous icy walkways

• Exceptionally economical
• No messy chemicals – will not corrode
concrete or metal surfaces like steps and sidewalks
|It’s all about
||Scientists will tell you that, even at
low temperatures, ice has a micro-thin film that acts
as liquid water, and this is what makes the ice slippery.
Ice-Crust interacts with this surface, providing a grip
on ice and hard packed snow. In contrast to coarse salt
and sand, Ice-Crust absorbs moisture and liquid. Tests
have shown that absorbent granulates provide better
friction than non-absorbing ones. Because of its low
weight, Ice-Crust will not sink through the surface
like sand tends to do.
easy to apply
|Ice-Crust is to be applied very sparingly.
One litre will usually be enough to cover 40 m2, or
450 ft2. As the Ice-Crust grains are smaller than sand,
a small volume will cover a much larger area than sand
or salt will. Homeowners will be able to sprinkle a
safe path to the mailbox with the handy, recyclable
plastic container, instead of using a wheel barrel and
shovel. Think about it: If each grain of sand (average
of 1 mm) is replaced by 1 grain of Ice-Crust, 1 litre
of Ice-Crust weighing just over half a kilo (1.3 lb),
will do the work of 40 kg (88 lb) of unwieldy sand.
Because Ice-Crust will go such a long way, it is misleading
to compare price per weight or volume against other
solutions. It is the price per square metre of coverage
that counts. And don’t forget the ease of handling.
when spring comes
||No more work removing sand when spring
comes. Usually the first rain will wash away any remaining
residue of Ice-Crust. Or it can be easily swept or hosed
onto the lawn, where it will act as a soil conditioner.
|Easy on the environment
||Ice-Crust is totally friendly to the environment.
Ice-Crust is an organic product made from minerals deposited
on former sea beds millions of years ago by one-celled
plants. The raw material is burnt and granulated, with
no harmful chemicals added. It has no damaging effects
on sidewalks, ground cover, or sewer systems. It is
harmless to people, plants and pets.
|The sandpaper effect
In special places, like that icy bump
outside your front door, you can walk safely by spraying
on Ice-Crust with lukewarm water from a plant-spray
bottle. When the Ice-Crust is dark brown, give it
a few seconds, and the cold will freeze it to the
surface, giving it a sandpaper effect. You will find
this a much better solution than the harmful mess
made with melting agents.
You can also get the same
effect when you spread Ice-Crust in the afternoon,
after the sun has softened the ice surface. The night
frost will then provide the sandpaper effect.
