Blastox®, Remedial Application for Lead
Estimates suggest that 256,000 premature deaths from cardiovascular disease — including 185,000 deaths from ischemic heart disease — in the USA may be linked to historical lead exposure in middle-aged and older adults, according to a study following 14,300 people for almost 20 years, published in The Lancet Public Health journal. Today, there are remedial applications available to help reduce the amount of lead exposure to the community.
Blastox® 215 is used in remedial applications for metal stabilization on soil remediation projects. Its small particle size provides a more reactive surface which is beneficial when stabilizing metals.
The low dose rate and competitive pricing makes Blastox® 215 an effective resource for many engineers and project managers.
If the contaminated soil exceeds the Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) limits, stakeholders should be aware that remedial applications, such as Blastox exists that can be added directly to the soil to render it non-hazardous. This significantly drives down the cost of disposal as hazardous waste transportation and hazardous waste disposal are avoided, allowing for local, non-hazardous waste disposal.

Blastox® 215 Technical Data
Product Description: Blastox® 215 is a patented, fine granular, complex calcium silicate-based additive. It stabilizes heavy metals including lead and cadmium. Applications include heavy metal-contaminated soil treatment, brass spent molding sand stabilization and furnace emissions waste stabilization.
For more than 30 years, TDJ Group has assisted Industrial industries in the stabilization of heavy metal contaminated wastes. More than 1,000,000 tons of industrial wastes have been eliminated using TDJ chemistries. Together, this minimizes the impact of lead hazards everywhere. Companies are realizing the cost savings and long term stability features that our chemistries afford. TDJ chemistries are the industry model for safe, cost-effective solutions for heavy metal waste treatment.
