Available in pellet and flake form.
ICE CONTROL - Good results start by evenly applying 3-5 ounces/square yard. Remove slush. Apply more as conditions require. Reduce consumption by removing any loose snow or ice before spreading. Applying as snow begins will minimize usage and permit easy removal. Effective to -25° F. * DUST CONTROL - Calcium Chloride has been historically used for dust palliative on roads and unpaved surfaces for many years. Depending on conditions, apply at an initial rate of 1.5 pounds / square yard and reapply as needed. Wearing rubber gloves and rubber sole shoes is recommended. Application after a light rain or sprinkling of the area helps calcium chloride work effectively. Product is hygroscopic (attracts moisture) and helps bind dust particles, reducing road/path repair over time. * FAST ACTING PELLET - Due to the exothermic (generates heat) properties of calcium chloride and the pellet configuration, the fast acting pellets drill through ice and undercut the bond between the pavement and ice providing economical consumption and easy removal of ice and snow. Calcium Chloride work in a wide range of temperatures for quick action and safer environment. NOTICE * Although calcium chloride does not attack concrete of proper quality, any ice melter increases the number of freeze / thaw cycles that may damage concrete. Do not use on poor quality concrete. At risk is concrete that is chipped, cracked or has exposed aggregate or is poorly formulated, finished and does not comply with the American Concrete Institute Committee 201. Also vulnerable are new or uncured concrete (less than one year old approximately). Applying calcium chloride to these surfaces is not recommended and will be at users risk. Deicers can be harmful to vegetation when applied directly or in excess. A good idea is to remove the slush from the area around vegetation. STORAGE * Store in a dry area. Keep bags tightly sealed and do not store in upper floors or areas where leakage can cause damage. Dispose of contents or waste in compliance with all federal, state and local laws and regulations. Do not reuse container.
Traction Magic is a patent-pending 2-part granule system consisting of all-natural crystal granules that function as Absorbers and Grippers.
First, the Absorbers suck up the liquid layer that's above the ice.
Second, the Grippers with their spike-like ends embed themselves into the ice sheet.
Traction Magic provides immediate traction for driveways and sidewalks. It does not contain any corrosive salts, chemicals, or dyes, works in all temperatures and will never cause damage to plants, concrete, brick, or stone.
Traction Magic® is manufactured by Gaia Enterprises, Inc. At Gaia, our focus is to create safe products for people, pets, and places. Sustainability is at the core of all of the products we create.
Gaia is the patent holder and manufacturer of revolutionary ice melter Safe Paw®. Up until 1998 when Safe Paw® was introduced, all ice melters were salt-based. Salt-based ice melt is incredibly damaging to the environment and dangerous for our pets and children.
Like Safe Paw, Traction Magic® is a completely safe and natural product. It is used by home owners, businesses, government, and construction sites.
Available in pellet and flake form.
MAG ® is environmentally friendlier
On a pound for pound basis, MAG contains approximately...
22% less chlorides than potassium
29% less chlorides than calcium chloride 39% less chlorides than calcium chloride 43% less chlorides than sodium chloride
...while still maintaining its high performance level. The application of MAG results in significantly less chloride runoff and pollution than potassium chloride, calcium chloride and sodium chloride. .
MAG ® is naturally pet friendly
MAG is much less toxic than Calcium Chloride, Potassium Chloride, and Sodium Chloride based on the data provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. In fact, a form of MAG is used as a mineral supplement in some farm animal feed stocks.
MAG ® is less irritating to the skin
MAG, unlike Calcium Chloride, is not noticeably
exothermic (generates heat) when it comes in contact
with moisture. MAG is unlikely to irritate skin or
burn the skin when it contacts moist skin surfaces.
MAG ® is safer around vegetation
When used as directed, MAG is safer to use around plants and bushes. In fact, Magnesium Chloride is used as an ingredient in some fertilizers.
MAG ® is less corrosive on metal surfaces
Tests show MAG to be significantly less corrosive than calcium chloride and sodium chloride on steel, tin and aluminum.
