Last week, QPR assembled three teams of represenatitves across the country with the goal to educate customers and potential customers about our Biodegradable Solvent and distribute samples of the material. The three teams were assembled in North and South Carolina, the Baltimore – D.C. area, and Southern California and set out to reach as many of you out there as possible in a week’s time. Recently introduced to the ShopWorx line, our Biodegradable Solvent is not only incredibly effective, but also cost effective when up against comparable solvent cleaners, and we want to get the word out about it! Since becoming available to our customers, the solvent has been getting great reviews from both government agencies and paving contractors alike.
For those who don’t know about the product, Biodegradable solvent is an eco friendly solution for cleaning off asphalt, tars, grease, and other unfriendly adhesives. With most states now regulating the use of Diesel Fuel for cleaning purposes, this solvent is an alternative and solution to diesel use and is made from earth friendly renewable resources. When asked what they typically use to clean asphalt off of lute rakes, most customers began their answer with, “Well, since we can’t use diesel anymore…” In fact, pictured below is an actual sign from one of the many asphalt plants we visited this week which shows the reception that diesel fuel is getting most places nowadays.
Knowing that many people must “see to believe,” our teams gave away hundreds of samples last week, each in a gallon jug, to various municipal and county road departments, asphalt producers, and paving companies. We found many city and county organizations paying well over $1,000 per 55 gallon drum of a less effective solvent, and many asphalt plants that hadn’t yet found a suitable option for tough grease, tar, and asphalt stains. With the days of diesel use coming to an end, many people in these areas were encouraged to learn about another option that is less expensive than other options they have tried in the past. Our Biodegradable Solvent is available in 55 gallon drums, and also in 330 gallon totes for those who have a greater need. For anyone wanting a free gallon sample of this product, call your local rep and he would be more than glad to get this great solvent into your hands. This product surely does speak for itself.
