Merlin Industrial Products Ltd are proud to sell the Stardust absorbent system.
The manufacturer Paradigm International, Inc. is on the cutting edge of absorbent technology with STARDUST Super Absorbentâ„¢. They call it a super absorbent because of its extraordinary versatility in absorbing any kind of liquid or semi-liquid on contact. This includes all animal, vegetable, mineral, petroleum, and chemical liquids*. It picks up all liquids, of any viscosity, off any hard surface, leaving that surface clean and dry. For that reason it is described as non-select, meaning it does not have a limited range of efficacy.
STARDUST is wholly processed from an inert, inorganic mineral, amorphous alumina silicate. Due to their amorphous structure, STARDUST particles provide a tremendous amount of surface area when compared to their volume. This structure allows for excellent surface tension, contributing to the exceptional absorption qualities of the product. In effect, STARDUST turns the spilled liquid into a solid that can be disposed of easily. Because it is lightweight and so simple to use, it dramatically reduces clean up costs, as well as the ever-increasing costs of disposal.
STARDUST has virtually unlimited uses as a dry absorbent that is safe in all applications. It is not injurious to soil, cement, asphalt, tile, plants, animals, or humans. It contains no reactive chemicals, is not toxic, flammable, or biodegradable, and is environmentally safe and friendly.
* DO NOT USE STARDUST TO ABSORB HYDROFLUORIC ACID.
STARDUST is an ABsorbent. Almost all other products on the market that are sold as ABsorbents are actually ADsorbents. What is the difference? Note the dictionary definitions:
Adsorb – “to collect a gas, liquid, or dissolved substance in a condensed form on a surface”. Adsorbents do not encapsulate or stabilize spilled substances. They are primarily useful for picking up and transporting the spilled material. ADsorbents are materials that retain liquids on the surface of their particles by capillary action and surface tension. The problem is that the spilled substance is still there on the surface of the particles and will leach back into the environment. For that reason disposal costs are extremely high, since few landfills can accept wastes that have been ADsorbed. This is especially true for the most widely used ADsorbent, granular clay, commonly referred to as kitty litter.
