Harena Technical Information
Fuel and oil spillage
Our Harena product is able to fully bond with hydrocarbons found naturally in fuels and oils, including synthetics. Fuel and oil is adsorbed by a unique coating until it is fully and permanently bonded.
Harena will adsorb from a wide variety of surfaces including concrete and asphalt, providing a complete clean without residue or staining. Due to its hydrophobic properties, it is effective in both wet and dry conditions.
Highly flammable spillages such as petrol are rendered safe once fully bonded to Harena, thereby reducing the risk of secondary accidents during cleanup. The adsorbed material is bonded irreversibly to the surface coating preventing release into the local environment.
Used Harena will become a dry, non-toxic crumb and unlike many alternative absorbents, will not form a mud or leach over time. Harena will remain fully hydrophobic even after use.
Highway construction and accident safety
Used at an accident site, Harena will greatly increase site safety. The rapid adsorption of fuels and oils will minimise the risk of environmental damage, slippage and fire. Reducing the potential of secondary accidents.
Aviation and airport safety
Our Harena product has the ability to improve safety and reduce the risk of potential accidents at airports hangers, and aircraft maintenance depots. In an industry where the safety is the top priority, Harena is the best solution to reduce accident risk from slippage, fire or environmental damage.
Harena has the ability to adsorb many liquid form polymer spills, containing the spill permanently within its unique coating and allowing for easy removal from the site.
Environmental cleanup – land and water
Harena can be very effective in an environmental cleanup operation, including the cleanup of waterborne spillage. Used on a water surface, Harena will float until it has adsorbed the spillage. Once adsorbed the used product will drop to the bottom and naturally biodegrade safely. Our product is effective on both fresh and saltwater enabling an effective clean of spillages of any environmental scale.
