Hazmat Defender Pads & Rolls are fully incinerable for easy disposal.
Hazmat Defender Pads & Rolls are made with a bright yellow color – this color is ideal for quick identification of the appropriate sorbent, as well as acts as a warning sign to other bystanders that the leak in question may be hazardous. The yellow color of Hazmat Defender Pads & Rolls is distinctive from other absorbent materials, with white and blue being for oil-only, and grey for universal spills.
Hazmat Defender Pads & Rolls come in 2 different product types – pads and rolls. Hazmat Defender Pads come 100/package, and are ideal for cleaning up small drips and spills, not requiring separation from a larger roll. Hazmat Defender Rolls come in a 30″ wide x 150′ roll, making it ideal for quickly covering large areas. Rolls also come perforated, for easy detachment without knives or scissors.
