SEA3400 Mineral Sponge is a multipurpose spill absorbent now available from Safety Equipment Agencies that is made from zeolite, and is a naturally occurring absorbent material.
Clean and off white in colour, this spill absorbent is non-toxic, and easy to handle. It features a large, negatively charged internal surface that allows it to trap and retain liquids, odours and vapours for safe disposal.
Safety Equipment Agencies have conducted a Paint Press Filter Test on Mineral Sponge absorbent, with results confirming that it did not release any free liquid. In addition, the treated product was found to immobilise TPH efficiently with TCLP result of <0.78mg/L TPH (C6-C40).
These results satisfy the disposal conditions noted in NSW EPA Generic Immobilisation Approval 1999/06.
