Re-Form oil only absorbents made of recycled materials offer an environmentally friendly solution. Hazardous Chemical Fluids SPC Recommends: Chemical Absorbents Surfactant-treated polypropylene absorbents can be used on a wide range of chemicals, including hydrofluoric acid. They are chemically inert, so they will not react with aggressive fluids. Keep in mind that absorbents take on the properties of whatever they absorb, so the bright color provides a visual indication to separate waste streams.
