Product Information

Chemical absorbent particulate is used for spills of strong acids, strong bases, coolant, paint, solvents, blood and hazardous liquids. Absorbent particulate features a large surface area and can be sprinkled onto and around the spill with precision.

Hazchem (also known as chemical) absorbents are made from meltblown polypropylene which are colour-coded pink for easy identification.  These absorbents are able to absorb up to 20 times their own weight in liquids and have a fast-wicking action to clean up spills quickly. Hazchem absorbents are inert and dust-free and will not degrade or chemically react with absorbed liquids.

  • Absorbent particulate is ideal for chemical processing plants, paint and panel shops, chemical storage and handling facilities, transport warehouses, food and beverage processing plants, printing and automotive workshops.
  • Particulate is ideal for placing on and around a spill to solidify and absorb.
  • Absorbs and cleans up most acids, bases, paints, solvents, hydrocarbons inks, dyes and aggressive water based liquids on contact.
  • Made from 100%  meltblown polypropylene – able to absorb up to 20 times its own weight in liquid.
  • Chemical absorbent particulate is an inert, surface-modified polypropylene which does not degrade or chemically react with the absorbed liquid.
  • High absorbency to weight ratio = lower transport and disposal costs.
  • Non-allergenic, non-hazardous with no dust.
  • Fast wicking action allows quick clean up, reduces potential slip hazards and improves safety in the workplace.
  • Simple to use without the need for specialised PPE.
  • Colour-coded pink for easy identification.

  • Absorbent capacity will vary depending on liquid viscosity, specific gravity and temperature.
  • Maintenance polypropylene is compatible with, and absorbs most acids and bases.
  • The suitability with a specific chemical should be confirmed by referencing the MSDS, a compatibility chart or sample testing. We can provide samples as required.
  • Absorbents retain the characteristics of the absorbed liquid. Appropriate PPE should be worn and disposal of used absorbents should be in accordance with local regulations.
