Vermiculite absorbent is ideal for placing on and around a spill to solidify and absorb. This granular product absorbs most aggressive acids and alkalis, as well as paints, solvents, hydrocarbons, inks, dyes, and aggressive water-based liquids on contact. By using vermiculite for spill management, you can ensure a safer, cleaner, and more efficient way to handle accidental liquid releases in various environments.

5 Reasons to choose Vermiculite:

  1. High Absorbency: Vermiculite can absorb a significant amount of liquid relative to its weight. This makes it efficient for soaking up various types of spills, including water, oil, chemicals, and other hazardous liquids.

  2. Lightweight: Despite its absorbent properties, vermiculite is lightweight and easy to handle. This makes it convenient for quick response to spills.

  3. Non-reactive: Vermiculite is chemically inert, meaning it does not react with most substances. This makes it safe to use with a wide range of chemicals without risk of dangerous reactions.

  4. Fire-resistant: Vermiculite is naturally fire-resistant, which can be particularly useful in industrial settings where flammable liquids might be spilled.

  5. Environmentally Friendly: Vermiculite is a natural mineral and is environmentally safe. It can often be disposed of without special handling, depending on what substances it has absorbed.

  6. Requirements: Meets ICAA and IATA hazardous material requirements
