Maintain safety and cleanliness using spill containment trays and chemical spill kits in places handling or storing hazardous materials and liquids. A variety of kits can contain different types of liquid spills including, mild, corrosive, flammable, and oily. They typically contain absorbents, cleaning materials, and trays that withstand various types of chemicals and remain intact. Staples® supplies spill kits and containment trays as well as other laboratory and scientific supplies.

Spill Containment Trays and Chemical Spill Kits for Different Types of Spills
Consider multipurpose options for labs that handle various types of mild reagents. These can include water-based liquids, coolants, and some mild acids and bases. Some kits also deal with oil spills. Trays and kits for solvents typically resist corrosion, and work together with chemicals that neutralize the solvents.

Spill kits clear and contain different amounts of spills. Large spills need larger tools, such as surface protectors and absorbent mats. They also need the largest waste containers that come with a capacity of 50 gallons each. Such options are sturdy to resist dents, rust, and corrosion and can also serve as central collection points. When dealing with smaller spills, 20-gallon containers along with smaller containment trays, surface protectors, and absorbers generally suffice.

Consider the Materials of Spill Control and Containment Kits
Some spill response kits can resist corrosion and discoloration. Plastic trays are made of polyethylene, polypropylene, or HDPE. These are suitable for non-corrosive spills. Aluminum options can withstand corrosive solvents that would dissolve other materials. Brightly colored trays are easy to locate in emergency situations.

Control Spills Using Spill Containment Supplies
Lab spill control is made easy when receptacles such as beakers are placed on spill containment trays. When pouring liquids, the spills remain in the trays for quick disposal in lab waste containers. These trays also provide a safe way to carry a number bottles at one time. Options that come with convenient handles are simple to carry around. Some trays are autoclavable to prevent cross-contamination.

What Are Common Features of Chemical Spill Kits and Containment Trays?
Open spill containers are useful for odorless, non-toxic liquids, and they're easy to use when speed is of the essence. If handling chemicals that easily evaporate, opt for closed containers to maintain healthy air quality. Absorbent mats included with kits are made of polyethylene because of its relative resistance to corrosion and absorption capabilities. Some are skid-resistant for enhanced safety.

How Can You Protect Shelves From Spills?
Surface protectors, made of absorbent polyethylene, prevent spills from spreading. Their cushioning qualities protect apparatus and counter tops from breaks and scratches. Use surface protectors as shelf liners to proactively prevent damage from spills. Plastic spill kits work with mild spills, while aluminum trays protect surfaces from corrosive chemical spills.

How Can You Safely Use Chemical Spill Kits and Spill Containment Trays?
Protective gear protects users from contact with harmful chemicals and vapors. Some of the gear includes safety masks, gloves, safety goggles, and lab coats. When worn correctly, these items help prevent direct contact with chemical spills.
