DENSORB Guide: Safe & effective clean up of leaks & spills

Accidents happen - but this does not have to be a problem when you have the right equipment to hand!

Any facility that uses, processes or stores hazardous substances should have an emergency plan for the containment and effective absorption of leaks and spills. Minor leaks, machinery drips or large spills are all a risk to your staff, your company and the environment.
DENSORB absorbents reliably absorb spilled liquids and help you avoid incalculable risks and associated costs.

Tips for daily use

    Even in the case of minor leaks and machinery drips, the environment and your employees are at risk. Contact with hazardous substances can be incredibly dangerous for your staff and spills can also lead to a slips and falls. DENSORB absorbents reliably absorb spilled liquids and help you avoid incalculable risks and associated costs - in all industrial and chemical areas.

  • Avoiding unnecessary costs

    Chemicals and oils entering sewage, soil or ground water cause costly contamination. DENSORB absorbents can help you to avoid high clean-up and disposal costs. 

  • Comply with legal regulations and environmental standards

    Regulations and environmental standards such require a responsible handling of hazardous liquids. The provision of absorbents for the safe containment of spilled liquids is therefore an important component of responsible emergency care.

The application possibilities of DENSORB absorbents are as diverse as the problems you can solve with them! 

Hover over the images to learn more about the different applications available. 

  • Capacity & Performance
    Characterized by a high quality fine fiber structure, DENSORB absorbents have an absorption capacity of up to 16 times their own weight. Due to the high absorption capacity, consumption is minimised and the spilled liquid is absorbed much faster.  

  • Save on disposal
    Thanks to their lower weight and high absorption capacity, DENSORB absorbents are significantly less expensive to dispose of than conventional binders.

  • Optimum safety
    DENSORB absorbents do not present any health hazards, but contribute to a safe and clean workplace. Also a potential danger of slipping is banned here.

  • Popular choice
    With its extensive product portfolio, DENSORB offers you the right absorbent for every application. 

Absorbents should be protected against permanent UV exposure and stored in a dry place. The temperature hardly plays a role during storage, since the melting temperature is 170 ° C. 

Oil-bonding agents should always be stored separately from universal and chemical absorbents in order to maintain their water-repellent properties.

It is important to always provide sufficient absorbents within reach of stored substances so that you can react as quickly as possible in the event of a spill. With our practical DENSORB spill kits, your absorbents are always where they are needed.

The absorbents themselves do not pose a safety risk. However, when used the absorbents have the property of the absorbed liquid. Used chemicals and oil absorbents must be disposed of in accordance with legal requirements. The absorbed liquid is decisive. For example, an absorbent mat used to clean up an oil spill must be treated according to the regulations of oil/waste oil disposal.

DENSORB absorbents are available in many practical formats. Whether for economical use with machinery drip losses or with high daily consumption.



DENSORB rolls are ideal for covering large areas and are available in different widths to meet your requirements. All rolls are perforated in the middle and across every 40cm, allowing you to easily tear off the amount required and use only as much as you need. 



Whether for absorbing liquids during maintenance or cleaning work or for the effective control of leaks - DENSORB mats are truly multi-talented.

They enable a need-oriented and economical application in daily operation and are also perfect for long-term use wherever small drip losses have to be absorbed. DENSORB mats are also suitable for absorbing spills and leaks. 

DENSORB Schlangen


DENSORB snakes are indispensable in the fight against leaks. They have a high absorption capacity and are easy to use. 

Snakes are ideal for use to absorb liquids that have leaked from machines, drums, and in work areas. The flexible polyester case makes it easy to bend the absorbent snake into shape, therefore containing the leak and preventing it from spreading. 

DENSORB snakes can also reach areas that are difficult to access.


DENSORB Cushions

DENSORB cushions have a large capacity and a small footprint, and thanks to their flexible shape, they are ideally suited for reliably absorbing leaking liquids or drip losses in difficult-to-access areas.

A special polypropylene filling provides a particularly good absorption capacity and are therefore perfect for continuous use.

DENSORB Varioform

DENSORB Varioform

With DENSORB Varioform you have a product for 4 different formats.

Varioform can be used universally as a roll, mat, snake or cleaning cloth and is suitable for daily use as well as for combating unexpected leaks. The binding material is already provided folded on a roll.

Thanks to the multiple perforations, however, the appropriate format can easily be torn off for every application.

In the practical and space-saving dispenser box, DENSORB Varioform is ideally suited for mobile use or on workbenches and ensures rapid deployment at all locations.

DENSORB Fassauflage

Other important criteria for the right product to meet your needs is the level of absorption capacity and its durability. These are, among other things, dependent on the material thickness of the products.

DENSORB rolls and mats are available in two thicknesses.





Normal material thickness, very flexible and ideal for absorbing small amounts of liquid during repairs, smaller leaks or in production areas.


DENSORB HEAVY = double absorbing capacity

Extra thick material thickness with maximum absorption capacity.

The high tear strength allows for longer-term use and / or absorption of higher amounts of liquid. 


The higher the durability, the stronger and longer the product can be stressed and remain in use.

Depending on the application, you should consider whether you need an extremely strong durability or whether a normal quality is sufficient for your purposes.

DENSORB rolls and mats are available in 3 different qualities:

DENSORB PREMIUM - High absorption capacity ensures long-term use

DENSORB rolls and mats in premium quality are suitable for the highest demands on durability and cleanliness thanks to their multi-layered construction. A two-sided reinforcement of the binding fleece by a liquid-permeable protective layer ensures highest tear and abrasion resistance. Another advantage: Premium quality tapes are lint-free and ideally suited for sensitive applications and surfaces.

DENSORB EXTRA - Extra quality for high demands on durability and efficiency.

DENSORB mats and rolls in extra quality have an additional lint-free protective fleece on the upper side. This additional robust layer provides a high tear and abrasion resistance.

Ideal for almost all applications - for example as a hard-wearing floor cover, for long-term use or for cleaning work.

DENSORB ECONOMY - Designed for most everyday applications.

DENSORB Mats and rolls in economy quality are high-strength absorbent material without additional reinforcement on the upper or lower side. They are suitable for economical use in the disposal of small leaks or for daily use in cleaning, maintenance and repair work.
