Product Details

This oil-encapsulating polymer demonstration will undoubtedly capture your students’ interest, stimulate scientific inquiry and heighten their awareness of the emerging environmental pollution issues facing our society. An oil-stabilizing polymer, Enviro-Bond™ 403 is specially formulated to bond quickly and safely to many types of liquid hydrocarbons, including crude oil, diesel fuel and gasoline. The bonding is so complete that it literally encapsulates the liquid hydrocarbons in just seconds. Teacher Demonstration Notes included. Includes Flinn Exclusive STEM Integration Guide. The encapsulant is also available separately.

Enviro-Bond™ 403 is a product of Petroleum Environmental Technologies, Inc., Williamsburg, Michigan.

Performance Expectations

HS-ESS3-6. Use a computational representation to illustrate the relationships among Earth systems and how those relationships are being modified due to human activity.
HS-ESS3-4. Evaluate or refine a technological solution that reduces impacts of human activities on natural systems.
HS-ESS2-2. Analyze geoscience data to make the claim that one change to Earth’s surface can create feedbacks that cause changes to other Earth systems.
MS-ESS3-2. Analyze and interpret data on natural hazards to forecast future catastrophic events and inform the development of technologies to mitigate their effects.
MS-ESS3-4. Construct an argument supported by evidence for how increases in human population and percapita consumption of natural resources impact Earth’s systems.
MS-ESS3-3. Apply scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and minimizing a human impact on the environment.
