Spill Magnet

Absorbent Gel Powder - Oil and Chemical Spills

A new approach to handling spills − a fast absorbing powder granule that absorbs and retains up to 40 times its own weight! (Clay granules only absorb 0.7 times their weight!)

Spill Magnet provides the answer for spill containment, vapour reduction and prevention of spills to drains and surface water.

A blend of acrylic polymer granules that swell and adsorb liquids on contact, Spill Magnet retains absorbed liquid and will not leach. When fully adsorbed Spill Magnet can easily be swept and removed for safe disposal. 

  • Quick acting
  • Non leaching
  • Spill containing

Benefits 

When oil and chemical spills occur, it is necessary to have a fast, effective and universal spill response product.

Most spill response powders are difficult to apply in windy conditions, are dusty and leave behind residues after clean up. Few have the ability to bind liquids and retain them in a semi-solid form.

Spill Magnet:

•  Extremely fast acting               

•  Swells to absorb up to 40 times its own volume

•  Non-reactive with all chemicals* and oils

•  Binds liquids together on contact

•  Does not allow the liquid to leach out   

•  Cleans to a film free surface

•  Non-dusting, even in windy conditions

•  Reduces levels of fuming from aggressive chemicals

 

* Not recommended for use with Hydrofluoric (HF) Acid

   

Where to Use

  • Spill Magnet provides the answer for spill containment, vapour reduction and prevention of spills to drains and surface water.

How to Use

  • Pour a liberal quantity of Spill Magnet around and onto the spilt liquid.
  • Pour in front of the liquid if it is flowing.
  • Pour around drain inlets to prevent liquid escaping into them.
  • Spill Magnet begins to work instantly. However, allow it to absorb the bulk of the liquid for 2 to 5 minutes.
  • Work the binder into the surface to produce a totally dry, film free result.
  • Sweep or vacuum up the residue. If any part of the surface remains wet, add a little more Spill Magnet and work again with the broom until the surface is completely dry.
  • NB: Spill Magnet does not neutralise chemical properties of liquids absorbed. Dispose of in accordance with the Manufacturer’s Safety Data Sheet for the liquid spilt.
