With so many products that are available for oil, gas, & unhealthy fluids that need gathering up to dispose of, how & why is NviroClean different you may ask.
From a sales point of view-once you actually see this product work-it sells itself. It is simply the fastest spill remediation product on the planet; & it is re-usable as well as Landfill Safe.
From a consumers point of view [we also own an automotive repair shop in Canton, Ga.,Hickory Flat Hwy Automotive, LLC.] NviroClean exceeds ALL our expectations and then some! Easy to use, easy to dispose of. NviroClean exceeds Landfill Safe as determined by the EPA. Spill something; sprinkle on, work in, and reuse it up to 5-6 times, depending on what you are picking up. One to one and a half (1-1 1/2) pounds of NviroClean will soak up an entire quart of any motor oil. Nine-tenths (0.9) lbs. will soak up either a quart of soda or muriatic acid. Anti Freeze is mostly water and this wonderful new product has the ability to allow H2O [water vapor] to evapoate back out. H2O is the ONLY molecule that has a molecular chain SMALL enough to let it escape from the total encapsulation properties that NviroClean has!
So depending on WHAT spill you are picking up/loading the NviroClean with, depends on how many times that you can reuse it. Ethylene Glycol being the only chemical in anti-freeze, along with water- [allowing it to dry out over a few days] the NviroClean will continue to be reusable for many more times than 5 times. As you become familiar with NviroClean, you will learn just how much to use in any given situation. If you use too much, save the left over portion. If too little, add more.
#1] We had to pay a company to dispose of our used spill pick-up products that we were using - clay based products & kitty litter type oil dry products by means of inceneration-the only EPA approved disposal of oil dry products as these are NOT to go into landfills because they break down and release the oils & chemicals that they have adsorbed back into our soil, eventually back into our water table. #2]Labor Costs-Clay Based products took our clean-up personnel close to an hour's time each time that we had to put down the clay based products and WAIT for the product to work-45 minutes on average per spill, [slip & fall danger], then once picked up, to clean the floor again by mopping with MORE chemicals to CUT THE GREASE until residue was not an issue for slipping & falling again. [Probably over an hour -per spill- in reality.] I do not know about your particular shop- but our guys work by Flat Rate-meaning that they only get paid what the labor guide calls for-not for cleaning up their mess. #3]Not having to worry about the stiff fines & penalties that would be imposed if disposal of the old types of oil & chemical pickup products were not approved by the EPA, as they are not landfill safe.
NviroClean is an ABSORBENT-not an ADSORBENT.
*Definition- ABsorbent-Materials that pick up and retain liquid distributed throughout its molecular structure causing the solid to swell (50 percent or more). The absorbent must be at least 70 percent insoluble in excess fluid.
ADsorbent-Insoluble materials that are coated by a liquid on its surface, including pores and capillaries, without the solid swelling more than 50 percent in excess liquid.
NviroClean is Non Biodegrable. This is one of the most important parts because NviroCleanwill not melt or release its contents back into the ground-in the landfill, unlike the clay-based kitty litter type adsorbents do! NviroClean is an inert, inorganic, non-biodegradable blend of materials.
* Technical name: Amorphous Alumina Silica. Lightweight, odorless, non-toxic, non-flammable and non-carcinogenic. (Source) International Agency for the Research of Cancer, Monogram #42. It is environmentally friendly and safe to use. * NviroCleanworks by a means known as “silica encapsulation”. The encapsulated liquid actually becomes part of the silica molecule. * NviroCleanhas a tremendous surface area, and its surface tension optimizes encapsulation.
Do not use on Hydrofluoric acid. The combination can produce a potentially lethal gas. Hydrofluoric acid is produced by treatment of the mineral fluorite (CaF2) with concentrated sulfuric acid.
