TEAL-SORB FR Fire Retardant Absorbent Powder is specifically designed and formulated for the clean-up of combustible and flammable spills. TEAL-SORB FR is a unique, engineered mineral formulated to absorb and suppress the ignition properties of gasoline, diesel fuel, kerosene, paint thinners, solvents, and many other flammable and combustible liquids. Unlike clay, cellulose, peat, cotton lint/ fibers, and other agricultural based solutions, TEAL-SORB FR Fire Retardant Absorbent is formulated to absorb and suppress the combustible vapors of volatile liquids. Even if ignition sources are present, an absorbed spill becomes almost impossible to ignite. Should ignition occur, the explosive tendencies of many liquids are eliminated or greatly reduced, and the flame is easily suppressed using only water! And, unlike peat, cotton lint/ fibers, and cellulose, TEALSORB FR Fire Retardant is non-flammable and will NOT burn, further reducing the risk of fire or explosions.
Of particular interest is the lightweight and ultra absorbency characteristics of TEAL-SORB FR Fire Retardant Absorbent. With an average weight of 12 pounds per 5-gallon bag (approximately 0.80 cubic feet), TEAL-SORB FR Fire Retardant Absorbent Powder is able to absorb up to 3 times its own weight in liquid. Flammable and combustible liquid spills are readily absorbed, and the responder is left with a clumped material that weighs little more than the liquid that was captured.
