Prenco Spill Sweep Bio-Organic Absorbent, 10Kg Bag

Spill Sweep is an organic based absorbent that is used in Silverback Prenco Oil & Fuel and General Purpose Spill Kits.

The absorbent product is made up of biodegradable cellulose fibre with the addition of bio-active degrading microbes. These microbes become active when wet and help to break down oil & fuels and is able to be disposed of in normal waste. Meets the USEPA leachate test criteria for demonstrating immobilisation of "oil & fuel liquid" and is therefore suitable for landfill disposal.

The fibres also have a "wax" like consistency, so that on a wet day when oil & fuel fluid is floating on water, the Spill Sweep fibres absorb the oils & fuels first to encapsulate the pollutant. When there is no oil & fuel present, the fibres will take on water based fluids after a few seconds.

Absorption rate is 2 to 1. (2 parts spill to 1 part product).


Note:
Because the microbes become active when wet, care needs to be made to keep the product dry in storage.

CAUTION

  • Its is not suitable for high concentration chemical fluid spills as the product "chars and turns black and doesn't absorb for those liquids (mild Battery Acid up to 40% concentration is the limit for Spill Sweep use).
  • Fibre will burn if exposed to flame or ignition.
