Teal-Sorb Super Absorbents "The Total Elimination of All liquids"
TEAL-SORB is a unique, engineered mineral alternative to today's spill response technologies. Unlike clay, cellulose, polypropylene, and other agricultural based solutions such as Oil-Dri, TEAL-SORB is designed to bring virtually any liquid into its structure and "lock" it away. With an average weight of 6 pounds per cubic foot, TEAL-SORB is capable of absorbing up to 7 times its own weight in liquid. The liquid is then captured leaving behind a residue free surface, and a manageable clump of absorbed material.
Teal-Sorb Available at:
TEAL-SORB - General All-purpose Absorbent
TEAL-SORB FR - Fire Retard for flammable or combustible spills
TEAL-SORB SR - Disinfecting Absorbent for body fluids or other potentially infectious wastes
*Never absorb Hydrofluoric Acid with any TEAL-SORB product.
Teal-Sorb Usage Instructions:
TEAL-SORB is best applied to a spill by opening the container on or near the ground next to the spill. With a stiff bristle brush or broom, push TEAL-SORB into the spill. brush back and forth over the spill in a circular motion until the spill is removed. Should more fluid or residue be present, add more TEAL-SORB to the area and repeat the process. Absorbed product must then be disposed according to local, state, federal, and international regulations and guidelines. The application of TEAL-SORB in extreme wind conditions should be avoided due to the lightweight properties of the product.
NOTE ABOUT COMBUSTIBLE & FLAMMABLE liQUIDS: When absorbing any flammable or combustible liquid, TEAL-SORB will greatly reduce the vapor trail associated with that liquid. TEAL-SORB may reduce the ability of the absorbed liquid to ignite or explode but will not prevent it completely. Use plenty of absorbent on such spills. After such liquids are absorbed, store in an appropriate container, outside, and with good ventilation. Add plenty of water to the container to greatly reduce the risk of fire or an explosion. Should a fire break out after TEAL-SORB has absorbed a flammable liquid, plenty of water may be used to successfully extinguish the flames. For routine absorption of flammable and combustible liquids, TEAL-SORB FR must be used (product patent pending)! TEAL-SORB FR has “fire resistant” properties and is much safer to use on combustible & flammable liquid spills.
