The Chemsorb Advantage
CHEMSORB® is a universal sorbent, specially designed for the control and pick up of land-based
spills of industrial, aviation, automotive, medical, municipal and agricultural liquids and
The Resource Conservation Recovery Act (RCRA), enacted in 1976, requires a Spill, Prevention,
Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) plan for users of hazardous materials, making users
responsible for the control, cleanup, and legal disposal of hazardous waste spills. CHEMSORB® was
designed to assist you in the execution of such a plan.
Since most spills do 90% of their damage in the first few moments, rapid response in the removal of the spill is essential. CHEMSORB® sorbents work faster, with more sorbent capacity, than any
other product on the market.
- CHEMSORB® Universal Sorbent is nonselective – its high surface area rapidly soaks up
any chemical liquid material.
- Will not react with hazardous materials and it inhibits vaporization to reduce the danger
of volatile and cryogenic chemicals.
- Since most spills do 90% of their damage in the first few moments, CHEMSORB® is
specially formulated to work faster than other spill response products.
- CHEMSORB® absorbs up to 21 times its own weight and is 15 times more effective in
its absorption capacity by weight than expanded clay.
- An indefinite shelf life – can be stored throughout a facility wherever spills may occur.
- CHEMSORB® is an inert, naturally-occurring material that is environmentally safe and
will not itself add to any pollution.
- CHEMSORB® has been independently tested with over 100 liquids for absorbency
performance; including with acids, alkalis, hydrocarbons, pesticides and chlorinated
compounds. See our Absorption Data Chart for details. Custom performance testing is
also available for additional liquid chemicals.
- Available in a broad range of delivery configurations, including Pillows, Diking Tubes,
Sorbent Booms, Bulk Packs, Drums and a variety of complete Spill Response Kits.
- CHEMSORB® is ideal for use in a spill maintenance program – by diking around
the base of spill or leak-prone equipment in your plant.
