    I am looking at bidding a job and the customer requires the use of Magnesium, not salt. I have never used this and have some questions that you all might be able to help with.

    1) What is the rational for using mag and not salt? Is it more effective?

    2) What is the lowest effective temp for Mag? At what temp does it not work?

    3) Where can a guy go to purchase it in bulk?

    4) When is the best time to apply it? Do you put it on after it has snowed, before it starts, during, etc.?

    Thanks for any input and advice
