Brine doesn't work at temperatures like these, but LIQUID SNOW MELT DOES
BPG is the only true “green” snow melt on the market. Salt and chloride based melt products wash off the roadway, wreaking havoc on our infrastructure and environment. Tests show 55% road salt runoff winds up in our water supply while the remaining 45% percent settles into the ground affecting vegetation. BPG poses no such threats.
Application of BPG is sprayed prior to storm. Unlike road salts, which need sun or water to ignite the melting process, BPG is effective immediately after its application. In fact, studies show the friction of passing traffic actually increases BPG melting capacity. Tests show BPG melts snow at a rate 2.7 times faster than salt and brine products and remains an active deicer up to 7 days after initial application, virtually eliminating post storm salting. In addition BPG prevents plowed roads from freezing overnight and is effective to temperatures up to 30 degrees below zero.
Midwest states currently using BPG report a 30% to 40% savings in snow removal budgets. Reductions in road and bridge repair, equipment maintenance, labor costs, post storm cleanup and vegetation damage are some of the savings being reported.
BPG has no corrosive affects and can be applied to any surface including metal and concrete. It is non toxic and can be stored virtually anywhere.
BPG is safe for all surfaces including concrete and all metals.

These are just some of the benefits you will experience by eliminating salt and chloride base products.
