Acid-stop was developed for industries that on a daily basis use some of the most toxic and caustic chemicals. Sometimes through no fault of the manufacturing process, these can spill, spray or leak from seals during the production process. As you can imagine, the people who work with these chemicals dress in the type of protective clothing that, on any other occasion, you could mistake them as astronauts. They have some of the highest levels of safety procedures, but they still have to deal with this and need a product that can safely minimise this risk.
There are products on the market that work with the above and they use different methods to achieve similar results. Some use chemicals that react with the spill and produce a less harmful finished chemical, others use highly porous minerals that enhance absorption and provide neutralising characteristics and, some use the process of ‘wicking’ and remove the chemical from the surface. Acid-stop is different from all of these. Our range can be carried on you in small units, or used via our range of pressurised sealed units or pump-to-use units.
Acid-stop is different from all of these, In that, it immediately decontaminates the affected area and/or person. Our range is powerful enough to be available in belt-mounted small canisters for personal use or used via a range of pressurised sealed units or pump-to-use units.
Due to the unique nature of Acid-stop, we were fortunate to get government funding to carry out extensive trials. We were incredibly excited to learn that not only did Acid-stop neutralise acids, but it also neutralised alkalines.
This places Acid-stop in a unique list of products that can work across the whole pH Spectrum (0 – 14) and neutralise both ACIDS and ALKALIS.
Acid-stop was developed for industrial applications, but you may be aware that the UK has one of the highest cases of CORROSIVE attacks in the world; this is both startling and true. London has the ominous title of the ‘acid attack hotspot‘ of the western world, and the youngest victim was just ten years old. Just writing these words for our website is incredibly concerning, but the level of devastation an attack brings to everyone involved is immeasurable and due to the method of the attack and its visible results, last a lifetime. Due to the complete safe-to-use nature of Acid-stop, the UK Police are looking at possible front-line use to help with these types of attacks.
