Chemical absorbents from DENSORB® are suitable for absorbing acids, alkalis or other aggressive or unknown chemicals. The binders do not decompose on absorption and do not cause a dangerous reaction on contact. The yellow warning colour of the binders indicates a potential hazard and makes absorbed liquid easily visible.
Absorbent mats are usually more suitable than granules for applications in industrial environments. They are made of polypropylene and can absorb and bind many times their own weight in liquid. Therefore, the disposal costs after the absorption of a pollutant are also much lower than for granules. Both weight and the volume to be disposed of are significantly smaller. Absorbent mats are efficient and easy to handle. Our DENSORB® range includes absorbent mats which are ideal for chemicals. Besides efficiency, cost-effectiveness is a significant factor. That is why we offer DENSORB® in packs perfectly adapted to the task: on rolls, as mats, socks or cushions.
Immediate absorption of small and large leaks not only reduces the risk of slips in the workshop, but also prevents ugly stains from spreading into office spaces. Practical: the absorbent materials do not take in any water - so you really only have to pay for the disposal of the actual hazardous material. Depending on the material used, its use also varies. DENSORB® absorbent mats can, for example, be laid permanently on surfaces. When maintenance work is due, work surfaces can also be lined with DENSORB® absorbent materials as a precaution. If chemicals have already leaked, DENSORB® socks can be used to contain the fluid while absorbing the leaked material with more mats or cushions. When the material is completely absorbed, disposal of the absorbent mats depending on the substance taken up.
When it comes to the use of chemical absorbents, it is also best to learn directly from the professionals: the DENIOS Academy regularly offers emergency leak training. The use of chemical absorbents is also covered in practical sessions.
The same applies to use in the factory hall. Here, too, a mishap can happen quickly: liquids can leak out during machine maintenance or in the laboratory, or a pipe can leak.
Chemical absorbents are part of good hazard prevention in the workplace
