FloodSax® are a sandless sandbag alternative that can save you time, money and protect property from water damage. Using a Biodegradable Polymer to absorb and then block water they have a significant advantage over traditional heavy sandbags.
FloodSax® uses a biodegradable polymer to absorbs water, then block it. Delivered as a flat one-pound sack, they absorb up to 45 pounds of fresh water in five minutes, forming a dense gel that blocks and redirects water, while forming to each other or adjacent structures for a tighter fit than traditional sandbags. Because they are stored dry, they are cleaner, lighter, more effective and easier to use in the places and times when sandbags are most needed and come with a Five year shelf life warranty.
FloodSax® save you money and time through all stages of sandbag usage: storage, deployment, usage and cleanup.
