Hazmat on scene at Chemlink Laboratory in Cobb County.

COBB COUNTY, Ga. — A laboratory in Cobb County was evacuated after a spill.

Investigators say Chemlink Laboratory on Royal Drive in Kennesaw reported spoke in the building Tuesday afternoon.

The lab manufactures high-performance adhesives, sealants, coatings and related products.


The Cobb County fire Department said sodium percarbonate, a product similar to that used to clean front loader washing machines, spilled. Something then caused the sprinklers to go off, which caused the diluted product to run.

The entire building was evacuated and Hazmat was called to the scene.

There were no reports of exposure or injuries.
