Let’s talk about the most important factor to customers when purchasing a product: price. Where every dollar counts and efficiency is key, choosing the right asphalt release agent can make all the difference. For years, diesel fuel has been the gold standard, touted for its affordability and accessibility. But here’s the thing: while diesel might seem like the cheaper option upfront, you might be spending more money than you think.

Diesel fuel has long been the go-to choice for asphalt release agents, and for good reason—or so it seemed. Its affordability made it an attractive option for paving crews looking to keep costs down and prevent asphalt build-up. But over the years, contractors started to realize that the true cost of diesel goes far beyond its price tag.

Sure, diesel might be cheaper per gallon, but that initial savings quickly evaporates when you factor in the need for frequent reapplication and its short lifespan as a release agent. Not to mention the toll it takes on pavement integrity, which can cost you time and money to repair. Diesel might seem like a bargain at first, but its inefficiency and drawbacks add up over time.

And don’t get me started on potential fines and loss of work for using diesel fuel.

The Value of PavePro

Enter PavePro—a game-changer in the world of asphalt release agents. Quickly taking the industry over by storm, PavePro is a product that works better than diesel and, despite coming at a higher cost-per-gallon, is the best value release agent on the market today.

Here’s the thing about cost per gallon: in the chemical world, it doesn’t mean jack. What matters is value, and that’s where PavePro shines. Let’s break it down:

  • Extended Lifespan: PavePro lasts 3-4 times longer than diesel fuel as a release agent, meaning you’ll need to purchase and apply it less frequently. You can spray it in the bed of your truck and get multiple loads with one application or in your paver hopper twice a day and you’ll see no build-up. This not only saves you money on product costs but also reduces labor hours spent stopping work and reapplying release agents.
  • Superior Performance: With PavePro, you’ll use less product for better results. Its unique formula works better than diesel by minimizing asphalt build-up, allowing for smoother paving operations and fewer interruptions. Plus, its high flash point means it stays active longer, maximizing its effectiveness on the job site.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: While PavePro may have a higher upfront cost compared to diesel fuel, its superior performance and extended lifespan make it a more cost-effective option in the long run. When compared to other non-petroleum-based products, PavePro costs less than 70% of the market, making it a smart investment for any paving crew or public works department trying to maximize their cost savings.
