When it comes to absorbing liquids such as acids, bases, corrosives, hydrochloric acid, sodium hydroxide, or a liquid spill that is unknown, other absorbents just won't do. You need hazmat absorbents to ensure the safest cleanup possible. These absorbents are surfactant treated and chemically inert. They will not degrade or react and have been manufactured to absorb and retain pretty much any liquid out there. Hazmat absorbents are yellow in colour so that they can be easily recognized for quick response to a dangerous spill. Although hazmat absorbents are the best option for cleaning up a hazardous spill, your personal protection is most important. Do not respond to a hazardous spill without the proper training and personal protective equipment.
