Granulated Diatomaceous Earth (calcined) is popular for use as an environmentally friend, all-purpose floor sweep used to manage and contain occasional spills of water, oil and grease. DE can absorb its own weight in liquid.
It can be used for domestic spills around the home (fuel, wine, etc) and also commercially for road side spills, service stations, maintenance workshops, parking areas, re-fuelling areas, paint and panel shops and automotive workshops. DE leaves surfaces dryer and less slippery.
DE has a low bulk density, high sorptive capacity, average surface area and relatively low abrasion.
- For use on hard surfaces wherever oils, fuels, chemicals and liquids are stored, handled and spilt
- DE is normally placed on and around a spill to “solidify” and absorb the liquid, and then swept up and recovered for disposal.
