UNI-SAFE has been developed by the German Chemical Industry in close cooperation with fire brigade specialists and it is designed to effectively absorb all liquid chemicals. The composition of UNI-SAFE does not allow any dangerous reactions, even with strongly reacting and oxidizing substances such as nitric acid, oleum, bromine, sulphuric acid, or hydrogen peroxide. For example, when nitric acid is bound by UNI-SAFE there is no formation of nitrous gases when using a copper splinter. The main component of UNI-SAFE is a polymer with an extremely high absorbency rate. Therefore UNI-SAFE is able to bind liquids with a volume of up to 75 times its net weight. 2 g of UNI-SAFE can absorb 150ml of water.
While UNI-SAFE physically absorbs non-aqueous substances through its capillary action, aqueous substances are bound in a chemical-physical process.
