Salts are the most common and effective tool used for
winter mantainaence of roadways & bridges but they are an
expensive solution that is harmful to our environment,
roads, and vehicles!
Farms use a variety of methods to combat ice & frost that
include physicals coverings and tarps, heated bedding, and
even UV treatments.
We developed SolarSand as a biodegradable alternative for
roadways & farms that absorbs solar energy to passively
melt ice & snow during sunlight exposure. Our
solar-powered sand can locally heat the base of a plant
melting ice & frost on the ground
Our thermal coating is used to coat sand since it is
commonly used for road traction in the winter, but both
our SolarSoil product and our solar coating itself are
compatiable with other de-icer products & salts.
