Q. How does Amphomag® Universal Spill Neutralizer compare with other spill-response products?
A. Amphomag, a registered trademark owned by Premier Magnesia, LLC, neutralizes both acids and bases, taking the guesswork out of emergency cleanups. The color indicator enables you to know whether the spill was an acid or a base, and also when it is fully neutralized.
Q. How much time does it take for a spill to be fully neutralized?
A. Reaction time for full neutralization is dependent upon what is being neutralized. Typically, 5 to 10 minutes is sufficient for most applications, but it could be longer or shorter depending on the spill. The color indicator confirms that the spill is completely neutralized.
Q. How should Amphomag be stored?
A. Amphomag should be stored in a dry, temperate, and protected place.
Q. What is the shelf life of Amphomag?
A. Amphomag has a long shelf life as long as the product remains in the original factory-sealed container and is stored in a cool, dry place. We recommend inspection of the product every 6 months. If the product is clumped or you see a color change, then it should be replaced.
