Superabsorbent Ultra Thin Cores and Airlaids for


Gelok superabsorbent laminates for industrial applications provide an effective solution for absorption of a wide range of hazardous, non-hazardous, contaminated and other regulated wastes. The laminates will retain large volumes of condensate and aqueous liquid in radioactive waste and hazardous waste containers.

Gelok superabsorbent laminates for industrial applications are constructed with strong polyester fabric layers bonded with a high performance polyolefin adhesive, thereby preventing tearing and delamination when dry. All materials are non-biodegradable.

Gelok Low-Profile, Superabsorbent Laminates

Any industry. Any application. Gelok laminates provide a turnkey solution or work as part of your custom capture, contain and control system.

Industrial Applications

  • Absorption of nuclear condensate
  • Hazardous waste absorption

Features & Benefits

Gelok laminates are ultra thin and can therefore easily conform to various truck, trailer or pipe geometries. All materials are non-biodegradable and have a high absorbency thereby preventing leakage and complying with transport regulations. Additionally, Gelok superabsorbent laminates for industrial applications have been freeze-thaw tested giving surety of performance in harsh conditions.

Sizes & Absorbencies

Laminates for absorption of hazardous wastes can be tailor-made to suit specific applications with absorbencies up to 7,500 grams per meter squared of 0.9% saline solution. Rolls can be up to 52″ wide and lengths as required.
