Enzo’s Cleaning Solutions is offering a heated wiper blade technology. Thermalblade heats the squeegee that touches the vehicle’s windshield, “wiping away the cold.”

The Thermalblade removes snow and ice build-up on the wipers, reducing build-up on the windshield to increase visibility and safety. By reducing build-up, it can also decrease wiper motor repairs.

Additionally, Thermalblades can eliminate the possibility of scratching a windshield due to a broken wiper.

Thermalblades can be useful for fleet vehicles, plow trucks, police cars, or any vehicle that is on the road during the winter, according to the company.

The blade reaches temperatures of 95 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit on the window at freezing outside temperatures. Wiper sizes range from 12 inches up to 28 inches.

Product Provides Traction for Tires on Ice

Traction Magic is a crystalline compound that provides traction for tires and feet on ice. Produced by Gala Enterprise, the traction agent turns any icy surface into a surface that feels rough like sandpaper, enabling cars to get out of snow drifts.

According to the company, it works faster than salt and better than kitty litter. And Traction Magic won’t damage concrete, brick, or stone or harm pets.

First, Traction Magic absorbs moisture. There is a thin layer of water on top of ice, and with the introduction of foot or vehicle traffic, pressure melting causes an increase in the water layer. This accelerates the slippage potential, which is why people and vehicles slip and slide.

Second, it grips the ice. When the product is applied, tiny particles grab onto the ice to create a sandpaper-like feel. This is what creates the traction for a vehicle or your feet.

Traction Magic floats on the surface of the melting ice so that it is safe to travel until that patch of ice is gone. It contains no salts or chemicals and will work in all temperatures.
