When hazardous liquids spill, use HazMat Sorbents for quick, efficient response. These poly blend Socks contain and soak up acids, bases and unknown fluids fast.
Hazmat Absorbent Socks with poly blend filler quickly absorb nearly any type of caustic, hazardous or unknown liquid — including acids, bases, solvents and chemicals. Hazmat Absorbent Socks contain spills to keep fluids from spreading into larger areas and becoming slippery hazards.
Hazmat Absorbent Socks are Color-coded Safety Yellow for fast identification; know exactly what you’re reaching for in an emergency spill situation. Hazmat Absorbent Socks are flexible to conform around the bases of leaky machines and offer a snug fit with no seepage.
NOTE: Ideal for use with battery acid but not compatible with higher concentrations of sulfuric acid.
