SORB can be used on all surfaces.
The Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety distinguishes between three categories:
[SORB XT is audited by the Official German Material Testing Institute and the Hygiene Institute and therefore it meets all requirements of the German Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety.]
For application on special grounds or industrial grounds.
The very fast process of absorption is simultaneously a guarantor for safety at workplace or on traffic roads; because of the grip of 97% after application.
For application on smaller bodies of water or usual grounds.
Contaminated soils can be remediated by adding some organic fertilizers and tilling the ground. This process strongly depends on the outside temperature and takes no longer time.
For application on water, also turbulent water
SORB XT is hydrophobic; as one of the results the absorbed mixture stays on the surface on the water. It can be suctioned or skimmed off.
The problem is not transferred from the surface of the water to the bottom.
Sorb xt has been tested by the materials testing office, Dortmund and the hygiene institute in Gelsenkirchen, Germany. After that, the binder meets all necessary requirements of the ministry of environment, nature conversation and nuclear safety.
