Absorbent- Mineral Sponge

Multi-purpose liquid and vapour absorbent especially suited to spill control

Mineral Sponge is not only able to physically absorb chemical spill it can also chemically adsorb it. This is because positive cations bond onto the the negative sites contained within the structure of the zeolite. Being a light weight clay Mineral Sponge is easy to handle but not too light that it can't be used in windy or draughty conditions unlike other absorbents on the market that are only suited to indoor applications. Mineral Sponge absorbs almost all liquids; acids, alkalis, oils, chemicals and petroleum products.
While Mineral Sponge is widely used in the industrial area, it can be just as versatile at home or on the farm, mopping up liquid chemicals, or in the workshop after oil changes.


It is very easy to use. In the case of a small spill, just spread mineral sponge evenly over the top and leave to absorb - or broom in to hasten the absorbing process. For larger spills, pour Mineral Sponge around the outside to 'dam' the spill (stop it from spreading) then spread over the top.
This process is also used for chemical spills with the added advantage of not only physically absorbing, but also chemically absorbing any vapour or toxic odours.

Mineral Sponge is available from the following retailers:

Filtration - Filta Aid

A filter media that effectively removes iron, manganese and odours from gravity fed filter systems

Filta-Aid is a natural mineral that has a large internal surface area and high cation exchange capability (C.E.C) that will allow much more adsorption of iron and manganese than sand as filter media. Our unique blend of two different zeolites give the maximum adsorption of iron and manganese.
Field trials have shown that the two pot mix of two different zeolites is the most effective way of removing iron and manganese in a gravity fed filter system.
Iron and manganese are frequently present in domestic water supplies. In well waters, the soluble iron oxide is converted to the soluble form of ferrous (disolved iron). Ferrous iron is colourless in solution, but when it comes in contact with the air, it oxidises readily creating reddish brown, solid particles which are then precipitated as ferric oxide (particles). High concentrations of iron or manganese will cause staining of laundry and porcelain fixtures and deposits in pipes, tanks and water heaters. In addition, iron may give the water a metallic taste making it unpleasant to drink. Iron bacteria, while considered harmless to health, can be very objectionable, causing slime and staining.
