For the handling and disposing of formaldehyde containing solutions. It immobilizes, cools, and contains spills. As well, it reduces the escape of formaldehyde gas and significantly reduces formalin concentration. F-gard- ER aids in reducing exposure to formaldehyde gases by immobilizing the formalin and transforming it to an easily removed semi-solid mass. The mass cools rapidly minimizing formaldehyde off-gassing.
