About AquaBlok
AquaBlok® provides a full range of powder-coated materials for sealing and contaminated sediment remediation applications. Both in-situ treatment materials and low-permeability thin capping materials are supplied under the AquaGate® and AquaBlok® names. In-situ treatment materials include AquaGate+ORGANOCLAY, a proven approach for construction on a permeable adsorptive (reactive) barrier or for use in remediating coal tar, creosote or other PAH contaminants and AquaGate+PAC, a powder-activated carbon (PAC) delivery system. Key benefits of AquaGate and AquaBlok products include a higher rate of adsorption than granular material, uniform delivery of a high surface area with less mass of treatment material, and high specific gravity, which allows placement directly through the water column and uniform mixing/placement with other materials.
