Technical specifications of BASICAPTAL®

1
BASICAPTAL® neutralizing absorbent specific to bases, can be used on all your alkaline chemicals by following a unique protocol.
You no longer need to identify the chemical before neutralizing it.
It eliminates all risk of accident complications due to incompatible chemical mixtures.
2
The absorbent turns blue in the presence of a base and turns back yellow when neutralization is complete.
The pH colour indicator allows you to visually identify the hazard and follow the neutralization process of the alkaline substance.
3
The neutralization of the alkaline chemical makes it possible to suppress the corrosivity of the alkaline character by bringing the pH back to a non-hazardous level.
An alkaline chemical may emit hazardous vapours continuously. Its neutralization makes it possible to stop these emissions at the source.
A neutralized chemical will no longer be corrosive, which reduces the risk of human and material contamination.

How does it work ?

BASICAPTAL® neutralizing absorbent combines the absorption power of superabsorbent polymers with the neutralizing capacity of amphoteric.

Schematic video showing how Basicaptal® neutralizing absorbent works.

Shot of a floor with a bucket, a liquid spill and a "slippery floor" sign. BASICAPTAL® base neutralizing absorbent powder is applied all around the liquid spill, then in the center. As the powder is dispersed, the areas affected by it turn blue, indicating that it is a base.

Zoom in on the liquid: grains representing the powder turn blue. The words "colored indicator" appear. Zoom in on one of the grains: the process shows the absorption and neutralization of the base by the grain, which begins to grow and turn blue, while absorbing the liquid around it. Zoom in on the reaction at molecular level: BASICAPTAL® traps and neutralizes the base.

Zoom out: back to the grain. Neutralization ends when the initial color returns. There is no longer any liquid around the grain, which has returned to neutral.

Safety recommendations during chemical accident

  • Do not forget to wear the safety equipment adapted to chemical spills and use the appropriate warning signs.
  • Used absorbents must be destroyed in accordance with the national regulations in force.
