When winter comes around, you are most likely to be faced with the menace of snow and ice-filled roads and driveways. To be prepared for these harsh conditions you need to ensure your winter car kit is working. Salt and sand are both used for providing traction, but work differently with different results. For beginners, rock salt is not your ordinary table salt but the mineral form of sodium chloride.
• Whereas salt works by melting ice, sand provides traction to your tires by pouring it on the surface of the ice.
• Salts works in temperatures of 12 degrees F and above, while on the other hand sands effectiveness doesn’t depend on the temperature of the surface.
• Salt is corrosive and harmful to the environment. It significantly increases the corrosion of vehicles and infrastructures. Sand, on the other hand, is eco-friendly.
