PEAT SORB can be used as a cleansing agent. It can absorb 8–12 times its own weight and is able to remove or neutralize 95% to 100% of contaminants present in water without any specialized training, and won’t complicate the problem further by being hazardous to handle or difficult to dispose of.
Its unique cellular structure allows PEAT SORB to absorb dyes and other colour compounds. Because of its chemical composition, PEAT SORB can stabilize or neutralize these elements.
With its ability to absorb through its porous exterior it can encapsulate, surround, and lock liquids and soluble solids into its gelatinous interior; thus virtually eliminating any chance of leaching when disposed of in landfill sites.
