As most people working in almost any industrial realm already knows, being environmentally sound, finding sustainable solutions for issues that degrade or pollute our environment, and basically producing organic, earth-friendly products are goals that businesses are striving to meet. When it comes to the concrete/grinding and polishing industry, a very large environmental issue arises that a company called Gelmaxx has worked extremely hard to find solutions for, and that is the management of ‘slurry’ and “silica dust”
The very definition of ‘slurry’ is a thin mud or cement that has become one of the largest regulatory compliance issues the concrete industry faces. Slurry waste water is not only incredibly messy but is also extremely difficult to remove; not to mention, the EPA has very high concerns and standards when it comes to the disposal of slurry waste water. Being overseen by local and government agencies, as well as strict EPA guidelines, the management of slurry waste water disposal is not only complicated, but also labor intensive and very costly – things that no business can afford in this fluctuating economy.
With Gelmaxx, each and every issue was solved when an expert in the industry designed individual products that would aid the contractor during every facet of the exhaustive ‘clean-up’ phase. Utilized by the industries of concrete polishing, coring and cutting, saw drilling and concrete pumpers, this unique formula uses only organic materials, which makes it not only safe for the environment but also meets all of the EPA compliance needs.
A proprietary blend with special additives that were designed to process cement-based slurry into reusable water and recyclable solids, Gelmaxx provides a two-part approach that offers maximum results and 100% recyclable solutions to the industry’s most difficult issues.
And there’s more, such as Eco-Quick Gel, which is a Slurry Solidifying Solution that can absorb liquid solids into a safe material which can be disposed of immediately. Twenty grams per gallon of treated material will create a gel-like substance within minutes that is safe to dispose of in any standard waste container. And seeing as that Eco-Quick meets the EPA Method 9095B paint filler test, the EPA regulations for proper disposal methods are taken care of.
Another product is AQUAmaxx, falling under the category of a Slurry Water Separating Solution, which is a proprietary blend with special additives that separates suspended solids from processed slurry water in seconds. This extremely reliable and powerful material reduces the amount of slurry waste by removing usable water. This water can then either be treated for PH balance and then disposed of correctly, or recycled back into the job site machinery.
The best part is that the entire line of Gelmaxx products is extremely easy-to-use, time-efficient and saves money on labor and disposal roll-offs, requiring no ‘special machinery’ in order to do the job right!
