Zap-Loc: Medical & Lab Solidifier

ZapLoc is the original solidifier for use in medical and food testing applications. Zap-loc rapidly solidifies fluid waste from surgical operations, laboratory testing procedures, and other similar processes, minimizing the risk of exposure to dangerous pathogens for healthcare workers, patients, and lab personnel.

  • Available in bottle & dissolvable film packs
  • Various sizes available
  • Rapid solidification for improved safety

Zap-Out: Solidifier + Treatment

Similar to the original Zap-Loc, but with addition of a treatment agent for elimination of infectious microbes within the fluid being absorbed.  Further reduces potential spread of infection and eliminates need for incineration in some states.

  • Available in bottles and dissolvable packs
  • Available in various sizes
  • Kills infectious microbes on contact

Superabsorbent Powders

Superabsorbent Polymers (SAP) in Powder Form have been used for decades to provide water blocking functionality required for under-ground and under-water cable application. Characteristics include:

  • Variety of particle size distributions available
  • Applied using dusting electro-static deposition and other methods
  • Custom blends with other components available

Superabsorbent Liquids

Superabsorbent liquids are used in conjunction with other cable components such as water-blocking yarns, tapes, and strings members. Characteristics include:

  • Ease of application
  • Improves housekeeping (reduces dusting)

Learn more.

Superabsorbent Hot-Melt

Water-soluble hot melt adhesives containing superabsorbent powders for applications directly on to various cable components.  Some characteristics include:

  • Adhesion functionality
  • Improves housekeeping (reduces dusting)
  • Very clean and controlled deposition
  • Available in tacky and non-tacky finish

SAPs for GelPacks

Superabosrbent Polymers provides a viscous gel minimizing leakage of accidentally ruptured hot and cold packs commonly used in refrigerated shipping/storage and sports therapy applications. Both the SAP and gel can be optimized for processing and end performance requirements through the use of particle size distributions or specific blends.

  • Non-toxic
  • Available in food grade quality
  • Minimizes leakage of punctured packs
  • safe disposal or re-use

Custom Grinding, Sieving & Blending 

The core capability of Zappa Stewart is the ability to custom grind and sieve SAPs into specific particle size distribution ranges. Custom blending is also a capability when additional functionality is required.

  • Wide range of particle size distributions available
  • Narrow particle size distributions are also available
  • Blending with other functional powders
