When working with glass bottles or open vessels such as beakers or test tubes, accidental chemical spillages can happen. Depending on the spilled substance, this can cause major health and safety risks.
Dedicated absorbents e.g., Supelco® Chemizorb® Absorbents, are the quick, safe, and environmentally friendly way to remove hazardous, aggressive, or unpleasant spilled liquids. Our fast-acting Chemizorb® absorbents are made of porous mineral or synthetic copolymers that are chemically inert, and capable of absorbing up to 400% of their own weight in liquid.
Our broad product range includes “all-round” as well as “specialist” absorbents for different hazardous substances to meet your individual lab requirements.
Our “all-round” absorbents Chemizorb® powder and Chemizorb® granules are characterized by a high absorbance capacity for aqueous solutions (acid, alkalis), organic solvents, and viscous oils. While granules possess a lower absorbance capacity than the powder, they are much easier to dose and can be used in places where powder proves unsuitable, e.g. in draughty rooms or outdoors.
Our “specialist” absorbents for alkalis (Chemizorb® OH-), acids (Chemizorb® H+), and hydrofluoric acid (Chemizorb® HF) additionally contain water-soluble neutralizers as well as pH indicators to keep track of the neutralization process. Aggressive acids and alkalis can thus be removed more efficiently and safely.
The “all-in-one” Chemizorb® Hg kit for mercury includes all reagents and auxiliaries you need to safely and completely remove drops and traces of mercury. The reagents included in the set are sufficient for the safe decontamination of an approximately one square meter area.
