Absorbent beige granular material used to soak and clean up spillages and drips from floors. They are inorganic, inert and porous, and will cleanly soak up water, all oils including soluble oil emulsions and chemical solutions. Unlike many other products on the market, and alternative absorbents such as sawdust, they are almost entirely dust free and can be safely used where dust could be unpleasant or a problem. It is unlikely that Floor Dressing Granules will cause allergies, sneezing or rashes or other problems of this nature. Absorbency is over 65% by volume for oil and an amazing 95% for water. Once the oil (or other fluid) has been absorbed by the granules it remains absorbed by capillary action and will not bleed out again from the pores of the material giving plenty of time to sweep or shovel up the loaded granules for disposal. Clean water spillages or leaks can be stopped from spreading to areas where damage to valuables would result. Floor Dressing Granules are most noted for their special effectiveness in dealing with, and minimising damage from, leaks and spillages of all types of lubricating oil, soluble oil emulsions, fuel oils, gas oil, derv and creosote.
