Water Absorbing Compound

Skidding on ice is called micro-hydroplaning where the weight of the vehicle and tire liquefies ice, forming a film of water as thin as only ten-one thousandths of a millimeter. That’s all it takes to seperate the tire from the road and is a huge factor in maintaining control of a vehicle. The iceGUARD iG51v and iG52c’s Water Absorbing Compound helps remove this layer of water away from the tire’s surface area and keeps your tires, your car and most importantly you better connected with the road. The iceGUARD’s Absorptive Balloons and Absorptive Carbons eliminate water through a suction and drainage process. The Absorptive Balloons wick away and drain water in a capillary motion, scientifically similar to a sponge.
