Poly blend-filled Oil-Only Socks contain and soak up petroleum-based fluids fast while repelling water. By selectively absorbing petroleum-based liquids and not water, these Oil-Only Absorbent Socks take in more oil and can be left on the job longer. Oil Only Absorbent Socks also float for cleanup of waterborne hydrocarbons.
Oil-Only Absorbent Socks are ideal for surrounding spilled fluids or wrapping around leaky machines. Oil-Only Absorbent Socks are easy and convenient to put into place. Oil-Only Absorbent Socks contain spills to keep fluids from spreading into larger areas and becoming slippery hazards. Oil-Only Absorbent Socks are flexible to conform around machine bases and offer a snug fit with no seepage.
