    Its funny how these guys get away with the MSDS sheet. Nothing on it ???
    When we did work for BP-America they never mentioned or speced that product.
    Send them an e-mail, and ask for a contact at the "White House"

    No I have not. Never heard of the product till you posted here. Honestly I think there reference sheet may be slightly exaggerated. :rolleyes:
    In my experience most of the "Super Duper" de-icers are not cost effective.
    The only way I would use the "Foo Foo Dust" products is if they are spec-ed by the client.
    Most have a really fancy bag, contain 90% Sodium Chloride, and are mixed with Mag, and or calcium. If you need a hot mix just by straight cal pellets and use straight or mix with your salt. Magic liquid or salt works well, but it is spendy. Plus it has plenty of mag in it to work effectively.

    Thanks again ...

    I was mostly curious about the impact lab test which "shows" that it's supposed to be basically completely benign to plants, grass, etc as well as to concrete and asphalt.
    Thanks ........
