Gran-sorb Features & Benefits

Gran-sorb all-purpose loose granular absorbent is clean, safe, effective, highly absorbent, and environmentally responsible.

Gran-sorb granules absorb oils, solvents, lubricants, coolants, water, and most non-aggressive liquids on contact. Because Gran-sorb is made using waste material from select paper mills, it is safe for the environment and can be used on almost all types of spills and clean-ups.

Industrial absorbents that contain clays (silicates) or diatomaceous earth (amorphous silica) may represent a health hazard. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) estimates that more than one million American workers are at risk of developing silicosis.
