How does PROPELLANT 49 compare to other ice melters?
Pound per pound P-49 melts more ice and snow than cheaper ice melters. It melts at lower temperatures. It melts faster and continues to melt snow up to 36 hours.
P-49 continues to melt for 36 hours?
Yes. It's what we call "Controlled Melting Action". This means you can apply P-49 at the first sign of snow or ice to keep your sidewalks and drives safe all day long. You can go home for the night knowing P-49 is still on the job keeping sidewalks and driveways safe overnight!
How long for delivery of a PROPELLANT 49 order?
We ship from 2 locations - Kansas City, Missouri, and Cleveland, Ohio. The same day your order is received at PACE, we fax the order to the warehouse servicing your location which makes normal delivery time in about 4-6 days.
Who pays the freight?
The customer pays freight, but for his convenience we prepay and add the freight to his invoice. When the customer pays check with order, or needs to know what his freight will be, you can call Pace and they will give you a freight rate. Being a PACE customer has advantages here too. Because we are a volume shipper, PACE shipments receive as much as a 60% discount from the trucklines which typically applies to a customer's delivery too. In addition, each of our P-49 packages, from the Handy Pack to the Blizzard Bonus, gives you FREE material whose value far offsets any freight charge.
Can a bank place a large order like a Blizzard Bonus to take advantage of the savings and then have smaller quantities shipped to each branch office?
Absolutely yes. We have many such customers; not only banks, but fast food restaurants, supermarkets and property management firms. They get the benefit of the volume price, we invoice to a central office and make the shipments to different locations.
How does PROPELLANT 49 work on snow?
A good question as obviously even an ice melter as potent as P-49 will not melt a snow drift. However it does melt hard packed snow and if sprinkled evenly over walks and drives before heavy snow fall it prevents ice from forming and greatly expedites a heavy snow removal.
I've had bad experience with ice melters killing my grass and shrubs. How can I be sure P-49 will be different?

P-49 has been used for over 4 decades at National Shrines where the landscaping is priceless. The White House, Washington Monument, Vietnam Veterans Memorial ... we also sell to many landscaping companies for their own use.

We just moved into our new building. Can we use Propellant 49 on our new sidewalks?
The Portland Cement Association recommends against using any type of a chemical de-icer including salt on concrete that is less than 1 year old because it can take this long for new concrete to reach it's full structural strength.
