The mercury spill kit supplied by Spill Shop allows the user to clear up any mercury spillage safely and effectively. It has become apparent through research that exposure to mercury causes significant health risks and that not dealing with even the tiniest spillages can cause long-term illness. Hence why Spill Shop is dedicated to offering the very best mercury spill kits online that will retrieve excess mercury with excellent value for money and long shelf life. Our mercury spillage kit is ideal for hospitals, medical practices, dental surgeries, schools and laboratories.
Inside a mercury spillage kit, you can find a dampening spray that will suppress the further release of mercury vapour. Other components in the kit will then allow for the safe collection of mercury droplets, including mercury syringes, scrapers, amalgamating powder, collection sponges and multiple sets of protective gloves. To protect the surrounding area, we even supply warning tape and a specialised mercury spill warning card to inform others.
Liquid mercury at room temperature poses a threat to human health in two ways. Firstly, it can be absorbed into the body by direct skin contact. Secondly, and more worryingly, mercury vapour can unknowingly be inhaled, entering the lungs and then the blood system. Once in the blood system, it is carried around the body and absorbed into vital organs, eventually attacking the central nervous system. This is why cleaning up spills of this nature with a specialist mercury spill kit is crucial, and Spill Shop is dedicated to offering the highest-quality care with our industry-leading kits.
