How to Use Absorbeez A1 Power Sorb
1 Pour the powder in front of the spill (not directly on the spill) and partially surround it. If the spill is
flowing, place the powder in front of the flow, creating a dam. The amount of powder needed will
depend on the amount and viscosity of the spill.
2 Using a broom, push the powder onto the surface of the spill. Then with a rapid, circular motion,
mix the powder into the spill until the liquid is absorbed. Reapply the powder if it becomes
saturated before the spill has been completely absorbed and continue to mix.
3 Once the spill is absorbed, remove the powder with a dustpan and brush, Dispose of the product
as per local refuse guidelines for the substance absorbed.
If the spill is large and very viscous, a flat garden rake, with the teeth pointed upwards, can be
used. When absorbing liquids that stain, such as paint, the powder will leave the area clean and
dry. However, if the surface is porous, the liquid may get trapped in the pores and leave a stain. If
this happens, pour paint thinner (or another suitable liquifier) onto the area and work it into the
surface with the broom. This will turn the stain into a liquid that will be immediately absorbed by the
powder. Repeat if necessary.
*Do not use A1 Power Sorb to pick up hydrofluoric acid. Lethal flames may be produced.
