Spilloclean is a concentrated, water soluble mixture of biodegradable and non-toxic surface active agents in a 100% organic bio-solvent. It is miscible with water in all proportions and can be used as a concentrate or diluted with water. Spilloclean oil dispersant is a high performing active surfactant that is specially formulated for oil spills clean up on land and water. It assists with the breaking up of the oil slick into small droplets. Spilloclean can do this because they contain molecules that are both water compatible and oil compatible. The molecules align themselves around the oil droplets allowing it to break away from the slick. This action prevents the coalescence (reforming or joining) of oil droplets. So, the oil can no longer form slick on land and water surface, and it reduces the adherence of the oil to solid particles (sand) and hard surfaces (sea walls & boat hulls). It contains a high degree of emulsifying agents and is thus very effective in emulsifying free flowing oils that would otherwise spread rapidly or clog and pollute the environment.
Spilloclean speeds the dispersion and breakup of the oil spill which prevents the dissolving of atmospheric oxygen into the sea water. The quick breaking up and dispersing of large oil spill allows oxygen to dissolve in sea water, thus allowing it to reach the living marine organisms and preserving the ecology. By removing the oil from the water surface, birds, aquatic lives and sensitive coast is protected.
Spilloclean is 100% biodegradable and therefore very valuable for earth remediation where oil spill occur on land. It breaks up hydrocarbons aggregates into smaller molecules which native bacteria and other local microbes on land and water can easily attack. The broken down molecules is transformed into soil nutrients on land and feeds for aquatic life on water. When used on land, it neutralizes the rancidity of the oil on the soil and on the vegetation leaving the area clean and fresh for a lush new growth. It is all-natural, and it is safe to the environment, birds, animals, and aquatic life.
Apart from use in oil spill clean up, Spilloclean can also be used as a degreaser for barges, tanks, rigs, boiler rooms etc. It is also very valuable in containing oil fire both on land and water. With the break up of the oil into water wetted droplets, the continuity of the fire is disrupted and it also stops any further spread of oil fire. The mixture of spilloclean and water is non flammable and non hazardous.
