If your priority is economy and short-term use for cleaning up oil spills, Oil Only Pads are the perfect choice. Available in multiple weights and colors, Oil Only Pads are versatile enough to clean up any oil or fuel based spill. The highly absorbent MeltBlown polypropylene in these mats repels water while absorbing fuels.
Oil Only Pads are the workhorse of oil spill cleanup operations. Simple and versatile, Oil Only Pads can be used in everything from cleaning overspray and minor drips, to spill kits and spills on water. The strong construction features sonic-bonded points to increase the pad strength while on the job, ensuring that the Oil Only Pads will not break down after liquid has been absorbed.
For added versatility, These though oil-only pads also come with perforations, allowing the pads to be split into smaller sizes for additional applications. Thanks to the Water-repelling features of Polypropylene, Oil Only Pads are fully usable both inside and out. The white pads stand out on water both water and land, while the blue Oil Only Pads stand out while on snow.
Absorbent Pads are available in 3 types. Oil Only pads are white or blue, white allows you to see the saturation level of the pad, while blue is visible in snowy conditions. Grey Pads are for absorbing most kinds of non-aggressive spills. Yellow Pads are for Hazardous or unknown liquids, and are designed to withstand corrosive materials without breaking down.
