Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Zeolite used as an Industrial Spill Absorbent, with its capacity as a "molecular sponge" absorbs free hydrocarbons on contact.
Features
  • Zeolites have an open framework, honeycomb structure with pores, cavities and channels that are molecular in size. This molecular sieving capability allows selective separation, absorption and immobilization of hydrocarbon spills.
  • Zeocan Zeolite Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC) is 180 to 190 meq/100 grams, much higher than typical soils, clays and other zeolites.
  • The surface area of zeolite is in the 20 to 50 square meters per gram range. The charge differential between silica and alumina in the honeycomb structure of the lattice results in a highly reactive surface. Absorption processes are enhanced by the bonding to these active sites.
  • The channels and cavities provide a large void volume allowing for retention of liquids and enhancing permeability and porosity.
  • The hydrocarbon spill is 'soaked up' into the porous zeolite matrix until fully saturated.
  • Zeolite has the strength to withstand traffic without disintegrating into a slippery mush as in the case of other leading brands. Zeolite is a solid sponge that absorbs high and low viscosity materials directly into its molecular structure thereby binding and holding the various hydrocarbons.
  • Zeolites also chemically bond to various positively charged ions (cations) such as ammonia and various heavy metals such as lead, zinc and copper.
  • Mechanics often comment that zeolite, when applied over a spill, does not affect their creeper as they work under vehicles. Other products cannot make this claim.
  • Zeolite reduces tracking and spreading across the shop floor. It is extremely durable in high winds.
  • Zeolite provides maximum performance in an economical manner.
  • Low dust and easy to apply. Zeolite has an appealing light green colour when applied that changes to a rich dark green colour while absorbing hydrocarbons.
  • Used to absorb and lock up toxic and non-toxic fluids such as gasoline, diesel, oil, gear oil, antifreeze, paint thinners, varsol and anything else around the home, shop or plant.
  • Zeolite absorbs gaseous odours (LEL) and hydrocarbons. Zeolite also is used as an air filter as it literally absorbs ammonia, smoke and various other odours.
  • Makes an excellent traction aid for ice on walkways, driveways, stairs and ramps.
