More information about Chemical Spill Kits

Chemical Spill Kits are essential spill management equipment designed for rapid and effective containment of chemical spills in the workplace. They consist of high-quality absorbent materials well suited to working with acids, alkalis, and hazardous chemicals. These kits are typically supplied in a break pack, shoulder bag or plastic drum, providing a convenient and efficient way to respond to spills of hazardous substances.

At First Mats, we offer a wide range of emergency spill kits to handle hazardous chemical spills quickly and easily. Various capacities are available, all with fast delivery across the UK.

Why Use Chemical Spill Kits?

The primary purpose of a Chemical Spill Kit is to help contain hazardous spills in an emergency. The absorbent materials they are made from, identifiable by their yellow colour, are designed to work with chemicals, acids, and alkalis.

Strategically placing Chemical Spill Response Kits near stored chemicals and hazardous liquids in the warehouse, as you would Fire Extinguishers, allows users to access them quickly in an emergency. Hopefully, you'll never need to use your Chemical Spill Kits, but having them on-site improves workplace safety and reduces the potential for harm.

Things to Consider When Buying Chemical Spill Kits

When purchasing a Chemical Spill Kit, consider the types of hazardous chemicals you handle, the potential volume of a spill, and the location of the kit.


Our comprehensive range of Chemical Spill Kits is compatible with many acids, alkalis and other hazardous substances. Please see our Compatibility Guide in each product description to determine which ones our kits are compatible with.


The size stated for each spill kit refers to how much liquid it can absorb. It's recommended that provisions absorb at least 25% of the total fluids in storage, so consider the volume of chemicals stored on-site and ensure your spill containment provisions can absorb at least a quarter of it. The Chemical Spill Kits we provide range from 10 to 800 litres in absorbency capacity, and you can use multiple smaller kits to reach the 25% minimum figure.

Each kit contains various items to contain hazardous chemical spills, such as absorbent pads and disposal bags, but the exact contents can vary by model. Some smaller, disposable spill kits contain drip trays, which are ideal for use as machine maintenance spill kits. Others are stored in 65 to 240-litre drums, containing a larger amount of absorbent material to stop greater amounts of liquid spreading.

What is Included in a Chemical Spill Kit?

A typical Chemical Spill Kit consists of a plastic drum or wheelie bin filled with various absorbent products. The spill kit contents include:

  • A container or carry bag (if over 35 litres capacity)
  • Absorbent socks or sausages to contain the spill
  • Several sheets of absorbent pad material to soak up the spill
  • Waste bags to safely dispose of the chemicals

Refill packs are also available so that used spill kits can be recharged rather than replaced, saving money and resources.

Which Chemicals Are Spill Kits Compatible With?

Chemical Spill Kits are suitable for various chemicals, acids, and alkalis. However, they are not compatible with oxidisers. It's important to check the label on each kit to ensure it's suitable for the types of chemicals you handle.

Please see our full spill kit compatibility guide for more information.

Are Chemical Spill Kits Compatible with Oil and Fuel?

Yes, Chemical Spill Kits are compatible with various oils and fuels. However, using specially designed Oil Spill Kits for this purpose is far more cost-effective.
