Cleanup of Polychlorinated Biphenyls Using the CAPSUR® Technology

CAPSUR is an aqueous based solvent system developed specifically for the extraction of Polychlorinated Biphenyl (PCB) from solid surfaces.

CAPSUR has the capability of being applied as a foam blanket which allows application to overhead, vertical and horizontal surfaces. Today, CAPSUR is considered the “Gold Standard” for PCB extraction.

CAPSUR is formulated to remove PCBs from concrete, asphalt, wood, and metal surfaces, and has demonstrated success on new and old spills.

CAPSUR has demonstrated extraction efficiencies greater than 95 percent.  This efficiency rate translates into less labor, and less product usage than other PCB extraction products.  CAPSUR easily vacuums up from surfaces.  Surfaces are lightly rinsed with water, which is vacuumed off.  Easier removal results in lower labor cost.  PCB extraction with CAPSUR uses dramatically less product than other PCB remediation products, resulting in less hazardous waste to dispose of after cleanup.

Application coverage will vary with surface porosity and operator proficiency.  The following are average coverage rates:

  • Porous Concrete = 125 sq. ft. per gallon
  • Asphalt = 150 sq. ft. per gallon
  • Metals = 200 sq. ft. per gallon
CAPSUR Benefits

  • High Extraction Rate
  • Lower Labor Costs
  • Successful on Old and New spills
  • Widely Applicable

Painted surfaces should be patch tested prior to application as paint softening or discoloration may occur.

CAPSUR is available in 5 and 55 gallon containers.

Emergency information regarding ingestion, skin contact, eye contact or inhalation is included in the Safety Data Sheet (SDS).
