    Kaw Valley is Pre-Wetting Dry Sand with Magnesium Chloride. It is readily available and you don't have to wait for your load of salt!!!

    Channel 41 did a live broadcast on Friday Night at there Edwardsville Plant.

    Kaw Valley has it at both locations Edwardsville, Ks and Kansas City, Ks.

    The product lasts and spreads further than salt and sand. The sand actually stays on the surface and does not end up in the ditch. Each partical of sand has magnesium chloride on it which allows thawing immediatly on contact.

    Dan is there contact 913-544-7570 cell

    Good Product

    Not Scam


    The State of Alaska did a case study on this product here it is:

    Case Study:
    During 1997-1998, most of the effort centered on the use of sand pre-wetted with MgCl. Before and after a storm event, sand was applied to the roadway and MgCl was sprayed onto the sand as it left the hopper belt. As the pre-wetted sand hit the Snow pack, it melted, diluted, and refroze, embedding the sand into the pack. The sand provided immediate, long lasting friction with very little sand blown into the ditch by traffic. AKDOT experience found that the chemical continued to work, migrating through the pack over the next couple of days, turning the pack into a loosely arranged, oatmeal consistency. This was easily plowed off and some of it sub-limated (changed from a solid to a vapor) as traffic aerated the mixture. This was the first winter when Valdez experienced mostly ice-free roads. Sand use was reduced by 30 percent. After experimenting with different application rates,
    AKDOT found 7 gallons per ton optimal for conditions


    Here is the link for the case study.

    As you can see SnowMelt2006 the salt mines cannot keep up and Kaw Valley came up with a solution that other states have been using for years. By the way where is your salt?

    Here is the web address for Kaw Valley which not a spam www.kawvalleyco.com

    i hear ya

    i had one customer that i got last season(half way through)and i had to go back w/ a broom and sweep the wholelot because the grocery store had to replace all the wheels on thier carts and the floor in the first few isles because of sand

    I SELL NO SAND and that is why and how i get alot of my contract's

    it sound's kinda "spam'my" to me and they paid channle 41 to report on it. i guess if it was on channle 9 i would've seen and believed it LOL

    HMMMMM!!!!! hasnt this already been posted? LOL do you work for the company and is you''re name Dan? :eek:

    EDIT: personally i don't see how it could work better than salt......yeah it has a lower temp to it but the salt will make a LOT more brine and have a longer duration period IMO

    JayBrown: we shouldve hooked up and partied this new-year

    New Product

    The City of Edwardsville, Kansas directed channel 41 (NBC Action News) to Kaw Valley. Edwardsville used the product and were happy with the results.
