62 NOLN | PRODUCTS & SERVICES True Absorbent Solid Start recently announced the addi- tion of their new multi-use absorbent, Ab- sorb9X, to the True Brand product family. Absorb9X is composed of coconut coir, a lightweight, organic and all-natural absor- bent material made from the husk of the coconut. Coconut coir contains capillary cells that help to draw in and encapsulate liquids, which prevent them from being released back into the environment. Unlike conventional clay-based absor- bents, Absorb9X does not produce harm- ful dust and is non-abrasive to equipment. It is also completely safe for the workplace, as it is non-carcinogenic, non-toxic and pet-friendly. Most importantly, Absorb9X is also eco-friendly and environmentally safe. It is made from 100-percent organ- ic renewable resources and passes landfill testing TCLP/TTLC and the fish bowl bio- assay test. Absorb9X creates an ion- ic bond with hydrocarbons (the chief c o m p o n e n t s of petro- l e u m - b a s e d chemicals), so even if Absor- b9X becomes fully saturated by water, it will draw in and en- capsulate the oil/fuel/chemi- cals, while water is pushed out. Absorb9X expands when in contact with water and can hold up to nine times its weight, while never biode- grading. Absorb9X is a premium organic absor- bent and can be used to instantly and completely absorb all types of spills.
