First developed by Safetec in the late 1980s, Red Z Solidifier was used to help prevent infection during the AIDS epidemic. Unexpected spills can happen anytime, anywhere, no matter what type of industry. With the use of Red Z, you can reduce the risks from improper spill cleanup, by relying on the solidifying agent to do the hard work for you.
What is Red Z?
Red Z is a superabsorbent polymer that was developed by Safetec to clean and deodorize spills safely. The combination of the polymer and Chlorine combine to produce the desired solidification and deodorization effect. The product is extremely easy to use. All you have to do is sprinkle the powder over the spill, and it will instantly begin to solidify. Additionally, Red Z is shelf-stable, meaning that as long as it is kept cool and dry, it will not expire.
Where is Red Z used?
It can be used anywhere where there are people, blood, and body fluid spills may occur. It can be used in healthcare facilities, research centers, dentists/orthodontists, mortuaries, autopsy centers, testing laboratories, blood banks, collection services, nursing homes, tattoo parlors, correctional facilities, police/fire departments, etc. In each industry, they use it in several different ways, but with one goal. To keep everyone safe from infection.

Four Reasons to Use Red Z
It is fast-acting and easy to use - Red Z starts solidifying as soon as it is exposed to a liquid. This instant action makes spill cleanup safer.
Eliminates splashing by turning spills into semi-solid mass - splash reduction is crucial to reducing the risk of cross-contamination that could occur from hazardous spills.
Deodorizes and removes odors - odor reduction is an important part of cleaning up body fluid spills.
Cost-effective - Red Z is available in many different packaging options to fit the needs of any organization.
