Solvent Handler™

Solvent Handler is a free flowing oxygen scavenging granule developed to control hydrocarbon spills. When this virtually dust-free granule is applied, the spilled material is solidified, vapors are eliminated, and flammability risk is reduced. The resulting dry solid granules can easily be swept up, leaving little evidence of the spilled liquid. 

Solvent Handler™ is very effective in controlling: 

  • Flammable Liquids
  • Hydraulic Oils
  • Brake Oils
  • Chlorinated Solvents
  • Motor Oils
  • Residual flammable liquids or sludge left in containers or storage tanks

 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Consult SDS for the spilled material to become familiar with its chemical properties and safety and health requirements. 
  2. Select and wear proper personal protective equipment for the spilled chemical. 
  3. Evacuate area as necessary to ensure safety of personnel. 
  4. Eliminate all sources of ignition and ensure that there is adequate ventilation available before applying product. 
  5. Apply Solvent Handler™ to spill from the upwind side around its perimeter to dike the liquid, working from the outside of the spill toward the center. Completely blanket the spill, eliminating all wet areas. 
  6. Agitate product on the spill area with non-sparking paddle or scrapper, adding additional Solvent Handler™ as needed to eliminate all wet areas. 
  7. Check vapor elimination, using a vapor detection device. 
  8. Add additional Solvent Handler™ product until all vapor is eliminated. 
  9. Dispose of neutralized waste in accordance with Federal, State, and Local environmental regulations. 

NOTE:  Solvent Handler™ DOES NOT reduce toxicity. When this virtually dust-free granule is applied, the spilled material is solidified, vapors are eliminated, and flammability risk is reduced. If spilled material is toxic, the treated waste remains toxic and should be treated accordingly. 

 

      DO

Use on the following:

 

 

       DO NOT

       Use on the following:

Acetone                     Large volumes in enclosed

Polyform-F™

Directions of Use for PolyForm-F™ Formalin/Formaldehyde Neutralizer:

 

  1. Consult SDS for the spilled chemical solution, to become familiar with its chemical properties and health & safety requirements.
  2. Select and wear proper personal protective equipment as recommended or noted on the MSDS for the spilled chemical solution.
  3. Evacuate area as necessary to ensure safety of personnel.
  4. Eliminate all sources of ignition and ensure there is adequate ventilation in the area of the spill.
  5. Add PolyForm-F™ Formalin/Formaldehyde Neutralizer around the perimeter of the spill to dike the liquid and prevent spreading.  From the upwind side, cover the entire area from edge to edge at a ratio of approximately one-to-one, completely covering the spill and taking care to avoid vapors and splashing.
  6. Once PolyForm-F™ Formalin/Formaldehyde Neutralizer is applied, DO NOT MIX, allow to stand for approximately 12-15 minutes.
  7. Cleanup spill residue by using a plastic dust-pan and disposable towels, then place the collected spill residue in adequate waste bag.
  8. After spill residue has been removed from spill area, wipe up the spill area with cold tap water, using a towel, sponge or mop.
  9. "Post-Cleanup" the spill area with mild detergent solution recommended by your  facility for the final floor and/or counter cleanup.
  10. In most cases,  the PolyForm-F™ Formalin/Formaldehyde Neutralizer treated spill residue may be disposed of as a non-hazardous waste.
  • If the spilled solutions contain heavy metals, then the material must be handled as a potential hazardous waste.
  • If human or animal tissue has been in contact with the spilled formalin, then the spill residue material may be handled as a potential bio-medical waste.
  • Always dispose of all spill residue waste in accordance with users' facility recommendations and follow all Federal, State and Local environmental regulations.

 

       DO 

Use on the Following:

Cidex
Cidex - OPA
Formaldehyde
Formaldehyde Based Embalming Solution
Formalin
Glutaraldehyde
Metracide
OmniCide
Wavacide
10% Formalin

Also

  • Bouins Fixative - Add Polyform-F™ to destroy formaldehyde. Neutralize pH with biocarbonate or caustic soda. This will convert picric acid to sodium picrate, which can be disposed of safely.
  • B-5 Fixative - Contains heavy metals, which constitutes a hazardous waste.

Acid Handler™

"The first line of control for most accidental releases of corrosive materials."

This unique flowable powder was developed to facilitate the rapid and immediate control of spilled corrosive materials by:

 

  • Solidifying and neutralizing on contact.
  • Immediately stopping the spread of hazardous chemicals.
  • Reducing hazardous fumes and vapors. 
  • Reducing the corrosiveness of spilled materials, which reduces chemical attack on floors and other surfaces, as well as on the environment. 
  • Producing a controlled chemical reaction, rather than the usual violent reaction associated with the neutralization of strong corrosives. 
  • Eliminating the disposal problems typically associated with generic sorbents.
  • Producing a dry powder which can be cleaned up and disposed of as a nonhazardous waste. 

 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Consult SDS of spilled material to become familiar with its chemical properties and safety and health requirements.
  2. Select and wear proper personal protective equipment for the spilled material. 
  3. Evacuate area as necesary to ensure the safety of all personnel. 
  4. Eliminate all sources of ignition and ensure that there is adequate ventilation before applying product.
  5. Apply Acid Handler™ to the spill area, working from the upwind side and start from the outside of spill and working toward the center. If the spilled liquid is running, then apply product downstream of the spill to form a dam.
  6. Carefully mix with a non-reactive paddle or shovel until all liquid is solidified.
  7. Determine level of neutralization by using a pH test kit.
  8. Let solidified/neutralized material cool prior to clean up.
  9. Follow final clean up procedures established by your facility or company.
  10. Dispose of neutralized waste in accordance with Federal, State and Local environmental regulations.
