Abrasive Treatment

It is a challenge for municipalitiesmining companies or construction contractors to keep piles of abrasive or ore malleable in very cold temperatures. Somavrac C.C. therefore offers Xtragrip as a solution, which acts as an antifreeze treatment to make them more flexible and easier to handle!

Mixed with abrasive or ore piles, Xtragrip helps keep the pile malleable in harsh winter conditions. In addition, abrasives treated with Xtragrip liquid stick to the icy surfaces, preventing dispersion towards ditches.


In addition to these Xtragrip :

  • Is effective at very low temperatures; down to -50°C to be exact;
  • Reduces aggregate losses by 20% since, as mentioned, abrasives treated with Xtragrip adhere better to the road or icy surfaces;
  • Is available in several formats and concentrations;
