Why SpillFix makes sense for Flocculants spill cleanup

Throughout the USA and the world, industries like wastewater treatment, food processing, metal processing, pulp and paper manufacturing and metals and mineral mining, all use forms of the polymer flocculants in their production processes. Whether it’s non-ionic flocculants, anionic flocculants or cationic flocculants, this slippery polymer has many industrial uses and with its uses, creates many hazardous spills. Compared to other surfaces we consider slippery, like ice or steel which have a friction coefficient of 0.030, polymers have a friction coefficient of 0.013 making them more slippery and dangerous.

However flocculant drips and spills don’t have to remain difficult to clean, slip and fall risks for staff! SpillFix granular absorbent is proven to easily and quickly clean up flocculants leaving no slippery residue. Make flocculants spill cleanup a simple process in your workplace.

The SpillFix difference for flocculant spills

Leave surfaces residue-free and reduce hazards

Slip and fall hazards happen in all workplaces, with over 500,000 injuries happening yearly from falls in North America alone. With such a high impact for individuals and businesses, the need to mitigate slip and fall risks is of paramount importance. The slippery residue flocculants spills leave behind, is a large hazard for these accidents.

Unlike other absorbents that require secondary cleanup, and copious amounts of material, SpillFix absorbs spilt flocculants quickly and easily. 100ml of SpillFix is all you need to clean 50ml of spilt flocculants and its slippery residue. Simply lay down SpillFix granular absorbent on the spill, sweep back and forth with a stiff broom and scoop up the soiled absorbent.
