Protect From Freeze Statement

Enterprise Specialty Products manufactures a variety of water-based antifoam and defoaming agents that will freeze in temperatures at or below 32°F.

These “Protect from Freeze” products will only ship as listed below based on transit time:

  • One-day shipments - Monday-Thursday
  • Two-day shipment - Monday-Wednesday
  • Three or more days - Monday & Tuesday

Freight companies will institute a shipping embargo for products that will freeze when the outside temperature is at or below freezing point for several continuous days. During this period, freight companies will not accept shipments that have “Protect from Freezing” on the shipping paperwork. A customer may choose to ship on an embargo day. If that is the case, ESP will need written consent to do so & we will remove the “Protect from Freezing” from the paperwork. ESP will not be responsible for any freezing damage of the product once it has left our facility.

Collect and Third Party Billing:
