Traction & Non-Slip Agents

The absorbent properties of Grit-O’Cobs make it an excellent choice as a traction agent for use in commercial and industrial applications. Perfect for use on slippery surfaces like shipping docks and diamond plate, Grit-O’Cobs is an ecological alternative to salt and other chemicals. The hard, gritty nature of Grit-O’Cobs corncob granules helps to break up slippery ice spots and to work as an extender for ice melting granular products.

Unlike clay-based traction control media, Grit-o’Cobs contains no silica.

Stuck in the snow or mud? Add Grit-o’Cobs underneath the tires of a stuck car or truck for much-needed traction.

Which Grit-O’Cobs Product Do I Need?
