Only a small percentage of absorbents are made from readily renewable materials. FlashDry coir absorbent is not only sustainable but versatile. Classified as both a universal and hazmat absorbent with hydrophobic and oleophilic properties for marine or land, FlashDry works for all types of spills including chemicals, biohazards, and hydrocarbons. On water, its distinctive honeycomb-like structure and buoyancy allow FlashDry to quickly separate and encapsulate oil spills. With the ability to absorb up to four times its weight on contact, less FlashDry can clean up spills faster and leaves no residual residue, saving countless manhours and costs. Just 5 liters of FlashDry absorbs 1 gallon of fluid in only a minute while 10 liters of clay can take three hours plus secondary cleanup time. Moreover, FlashDry is one of the only absorbents that can be reused for future leaks or spills if not fully saturated.
The new FlashDry absorbent collection offers an all-encompassing solution for industrial spills. Product extensions include 15” x 20” Universal Absorbent Pads, 3” x 4’ Universal Absorbent Socks, a line of spill mats, and two Universal Rapid Response Spill Kits in four sizes each with and without two 5-liter buckets of FlashDry coir absorbent. Kits comply with OSHA standards and come in a high visibility duffle with ID tag including 14 pads, two socks, four pairs nitrile gloves, a discard bag, and instructions.
EarthSafe has more products in the near-term pipeline such as a version of FlashDry with hydrocarbon eating microbes and latching 5” x 10’ booms that securely wrap around spills.
