Ice Bear Winter Grit
Environmentally Friendly. Safe. Economical.
Very powerful winter gritting agent without salt, for this reason awarded with the ecolabel "Blue Angel". Ice Bear Winter Grit gives immediate sidewalk and driveway traction with no negative impact on materials and the environment.
Environmental Protection Because Salt Free
Ice Bear Winter Grit contains no grit salt (NaCl) nor other de-icing agents and it is therefore particularly environmentally sound. No discharge of chlorides or other pollutants into surface waters or the groundwater. No damage to plants in parks and in particular to urban trees, which are affected by an excessive uptake of salt due to winter service operations.
Moreover, Ice Bear Winter Grit is not dangerous for animal paws because it does not contain salt, and the granules have no sharp edges.
Safety Thanks To Immediate Effect
After its use, surfaces like difficult ramps, sidewalks, train platforms or public access areas with high traffic are immediately safe enough to walk and drive on.
Ice Bear Winter Grit provides slip control, this means that the treated surfaces afford instantly grip, and slipperiness can be averted.
Material Protection Because Of Its Porosity
Ice Bear Winter Grit is a natural, mineral gritting agent of volcanic origin with low hardness and therefore it does not scratch and damage common natural stone floors, vehicles or technical equipment such as escalators or lifts.
Containing no salt, Ice Bear Winter Grit causes no damage to road surfaces and sidewalks as well as no corrosion of vehicles, railings and other metallic parts.
Economical Thanks To Coverage Of Wide Areas
Ice Bear Winter Grit provides coverage for very large areas - a bag of 12 kg or 40 litres is sufficient for a surface of 1.000 up to 1.400 m².
Due to the low bulk density, the bags are easy to handle.
In case of sufficient precipitation, no blockage formation occurs in sewer systems or damage to them (product is – contrary to gravel! – carried away together with water from pipes and channels).
Due to the material-friendly properties of the product, no follow-up costs arise for repair works.
If Ice Bear Winter Grit is not soiled with oils and petrol, it does not need to be picked up again and can be swept into adjacent green spaces for soil enhancement - this saves disposal costs.
What Should Be Considered?
Gritting agents for fighting slippery conditions will only work until they are completely covered by a new ice or snow layer.
A TIP From RAW To Act In Compliance With The Law
Please observe local rules for winter maintenance, wastewater and/or road cleaning operations when using agents for ice and snow clearing such as granular gritting materials and de-icing agents.
