OSHA’s enactment of CFR 29 1926.1153, which includes strict documentation of employee’s exposure to airborne silicas, is a driving factor for XL North to create Porosity+. However, the adhesive industry is moving away from calling out a CSP designation, and rather looking for a porous substrate with which adhesives can form bonds. These changes created a need for XL Porosity+.
The OSHA enactment also notes that sweeping subfloors in preparation of flooring application can cause airborne silicas. XL Sander eliminates the issue, providing a compliant process to prep the surface.
For years, we’ve created environmentally responsible chemistries. When it comes to cleaning up, we want to make sure that no unwanted solids hits the waste water stream. XL Clean-Up solidifies high solids slurry, allowing it to be disposed of in accordance with federal, state and local regulations.
