Liquid Snow Chain


liquid snow chainBy David Ponce

We’re struggling a little bit between mechanical translations and personal Italian knowledge to extract information on this product. This is what we’re getting: Snow Chain is a polymer liquid that you apply to your tires to simulate snow chains. It hardens upon contact with water, and provides additional traction in icy and snowy conditions. Upon hitting dry asphalt again, it will simply erode away. It’s allegedly completely biodegradable, so it won’t harm the environment (much).

This sounds like something everyone should keep in their trunk, and if it works as advertised, the ? 30 asking price sounds more than reasonable. The product page is in Italian, so if there are any details we missed, our Italian readers are more than welcome to enlighten us.

  1. Fun idea but dodgy at best methinks. Applying this stuff to your wheels would take longer than mounting actual snowchains. You can get very cheap + good + compact snowchains these days – they are easy to install and won’t scream “stupid tourist” at everyone. Think twice πŸ™‚

  2. hmm whats that smell… smells like …tire bollognesi!

    having a compact set of snowchains beats the effort of putting that gooey stuff in 4 wheels…
