VaporSorb® Natural Vapor Absorbent Granules
Various combustible, flammable and noxious vapors can be generated from spills, stored chemicals, and in normal industrial and commercial operations. This can quickly saturate the air with harmful vapors since most ventilation systems only recirculate room air and remove large particulate matter such as dirt, dust, and lint. Noxious vapors are left free to recirculate in the air you breathe. Over time, they could increase in concentration in manufacturing areas, cabinets, chemical storage areas, etc. and result in a serious fire hazard as well as an indoor air pollution problem. This could lead to complaints from customers as well as employees and OSHA fines.
According to the EPA, "indoor pollution can be as much as 100 times greater than outdoors." Since most people spend close to 90% of their time indoors, indoor air pollution poses a serious health risk. Medical problems that have been associated with poor indoor air quality include dizziness, headaches, eye nose or throat irritation, dry or itchy skin, nausea, shortness of breath, difficulty in concentrating, fatigue, sensitivity to odors, allergies, depression, and chronic illnesses.
The VaporSorb® Natural Vapor Absorbent Granules were specially developed to remove harmful vapors from the atmosphere by adsorbing, neutralizing, and encapsulating them on contact for safe disposal. VaporSorb® is non-flammable and will reduce the explosive nature of whatever gas it absorbs. It will also act as a fire retardant if applied to a flammable liquids and reduce the temperature of the liquid making the blaze easier to extinguish. Furthermore, VaporSorb® can reduce the aggressiveness of smoke and hazardous vapors that are emitted. It will also aid the solidification of hazardous chemicals and sludge. VaporSorb® will truly cleanse the air of noxious vapors and complement existing ventilation systems. It works quickly, efficiently, cost-effectively, and results in reducing the health risks associated with vapor build up.
How VaporSorb® Works
The VaporSorb® Natural Vapor Absorbent Granules are a natural highly absorbent material that can be used to eliminate noxious vapors. VaporSorb® is negatively charged whereas many vapors ride on positively charged particles. As a result, VaporSorb® draws in vapors like a strong magnet. Thereafter, it traps, neutralizes, and encapsulates vapors without smelly cover-ups. The molecular structure of VaporSorb® is made up of a lattice structure arranged to form a honeycomb framework of billions of interconnecting channels. This gives VaporSorb® an enormous surface area that is larger than several football fields. The latter enables VaporSorb® to adsorb phenomenal amounts of vapors and work for months.
The VaporSorb® Natural Vapor Absorbent Granules are non-toxic, safe, non-hazardous, natural, non-scented, non-flammable, and non-caustic. It is an ideal environmentally friendly solution for eliminating vapors and improving indoor air quality. VaporSorb® does not contain chemical additives and is especially beneficial for those suffering from chemical sensitivity.
VaporSorb® can be effectively used by all types of industrial and commercial facilities to adsorb vapor from any spill or enclosed area. Typical applications include:
- Chemical Spills
- Organic Waste Cans
- Chemical Storage Rooms
- Shipping Containers
- Top Of Solvent Drums
- Dry Cleaners
- Any Other Enclosed Area With Vapors
For a breath of fresh air, simply sprinkle VaporSorb® granules generously on the spill to cover it, clean, and smell the difference. Repeat, if necessary, until vapor is eliminated. This product may also be placed in an open top container adjacent to noxious vapors to adsorb them. Use at least 4 pounds for every 400 square feet. This product will function most efficiently in enclosed areas with good air circulation. For extra effectiveness, use this product in conjunction with VaporSorb® Vapor Absorbent Pouch.
The unused VaporSorb® Natural Vapor Absorbent Granules are non-hazardous and environmentally safe. However, this will change if it is exposed to hazardous or toxic substances. Used VaporSorb® should be disposed according to all relevant local, state, and federal regulations
Reusing and Recycling VaporSorb® Products
VaporSorb® is unique and superior to other vapor control products and have more combined environmental and safety benefits then other vapor and fume control products on the market.
VaporSorb® is non-toxic, safe, reusable, recyclable, natural, odorless, non-flammable and non-caustic. VaporSorb® is an ideal environmentally friendly solution for eliminating a wide variety of odors without adding pollutants to the air you breathe. It does not contain VOCs, harmful or ozone depleting chemicals and is especially beneficial for those suffering from allergies and chemical sensitivity. No fossil fuels are used in the production of VaporSorb® vapor control media.
How to Rejuvenate VaporSorb® Natural Vapor Absorbent Pouches
VaporSorb® Natural Vapor Absorbent Pouches may be used repeatedly after periodically rejuvenating them. To rejuvenate, simply place in direct sunlight for a day and reuse. Rejuvenate the VaporSorb® Natural Vapor Absorbent Pouches weekly until a noticeable decrease in odor is detected. Thereafter, rejuvenate them when vapor levels increase or every 3-4 months. There is no set limit to the number of times the VaporSorb® Vapor Absorbent Pouches can be rejuvenated and could work for years so they are very cost effective. The actual number of times VaporSorb® can be rejuvenated and its actual life span will depend on the vapor concentrations, temperature, humidity and velocity of air flow it is exposed to. Replace the pouches every 3-4 months or when rejuvenation fails to work.
How to Recycle VaporSorb®
The unused VaporSorb® vapor control media are natural, non-hazardous and environmentally safe. You may remove this material from the pouch and apply to gardens, flower beds, yards, fields, potting soil and plant beds with thorough watering. It will act as a slow release fertilizer and help retain soil moisture.
If VaporSorb® is exposed to hazardous or toxic odors or pollutants, it will be considered as such and should be disposed according to all relevant local, state and federal regulations and not recycled as described above.
Encapsulate Hazardous Spills & Vapors for Safe Disposal
Many chemicals which are stored or spilled can saturate the air with harmful vapors. In addition, organic chemical spills could also result in a serious fire hazard.
The VaporSorb® Natural Vapor Absorbent Granules can be effectively used to absorb, neutralize and encapsulate various spills and related vapors for safe disposal. VaporSorb® is non-flammable and will reduce the explosive nature of gases it absorbs and act as a fire retardant if added to flammable liquids. It will reduce the temperature if applied to a liquid that has caught fire making the blaze easier to extinguish. VaporSorb® can also be used to aid the solidification of hazardous chemicals and sludge. VaporSorb® will truly cleanse the air of noxious vapors, complement existing ventilation systems, and create a safer environment.
For a breath of fresh air, simply sprinkle VaporSorb® granules generously on spill, allow to absorb, clean and smell the difference. It may also be placed in open containers near spills to eliminate noxious vapors and fumes.

I am ordering 2 of the 2 lb. vaporsorb granules for 1400 sqft floor that had water based polyurethane applied to it. Is this enough? Also I was thinking of 5 of the large pouches - is the chemical/industrial pouch the one I should order?
I would suggest getting an additional bottle of granules so you have a total of 3. Regarding the pouches, we recommend using 1 Vaporsorb pouch/150 square feet or 1/room or enclosed area.
