SpillBoss Granular Absorbents

There are a few points which apply to all our SpillBoss granular absorbents.

How to use:

In the event of a spill, (provided it is safe to do so) you would normally try and stop the spill at the source, barricade any drains nearby and then contain the spill to keep it from spreading.  Granular absorbents are very useful in this regard as they can be spread around the perimeter of the spill acting as a barrier to stop the spill spreading.  Once the spill has been contained you can then concentrate on cleaning up, which may involve placing more absorbent on the spill and then sweeping in from the outside edge, or using other products, such as absorbent pads and pillows to soak up the remainder of the spill.  Obviously, every spill is different, and it is important to use common sense when responding.

Where to use:

Granular absorbents work on both smooth and rough surfaces and some types also work on water, so they are perfect for most situations.  Depending on the size, type and location of the spill, different granular absorbents will work better, and we will go over this shortly.


Disposal of any absorbent should be in accordance with local regulations for the liquid absorbed.

All Argyle Commercial's SpillBoss granular absorbents are fast wicking and non-leaching, so once you begin the clean-up, you can have peace of mind, knowing the spill will be absorbed quickly and contained properly, meaning you can get back to the important stuff your work.


SpillBoss P35

P35 is a cost-effective loose absorbent with a similar consistency to sand.  Because it is non-slip it is perfect for factories and warehouses. This product is landfill friendly, so provided the liquid absorbed can go to general waste, the used absorbent can too.  Our SpillBoss P35 can safely absorb almost any liquid.  Comes in 15kg bags.  Pallet quantity 72.

SpillBoss P85

P85, our most popular absorbent is a 100% organic, premium grade lightweight absorbent.  It sweeps very clean on land and can be used to absorb oil on water!  Made from a coir mix it is biodegradable, so if the liquid absorbed is safe for the environment, you can place the used absorbent around trees or in the garden for moisture retention.  It is extremely absorbent: a 30L bag will absorb well over 30L of liquid!  Comes in 30L bags.  Pallet quantity 72.

SpillBoss P95

P95 is made from a natural fossilised sea sponge and has a huge absorption capacity.  Ideal for highway and construction spills, this product won't leave an oily surface.  It will stay granular when wet and absorbs up to 5x as much as regular clay granules.  Comes in 15 kg bags.  Pallet quantity 72.
