100% Polypropylene Oil Absorbent:

The Industrial Oil Absorbents are made entirely of polypropylene (PP), is the most suitable for cleaning, decontamination and maintenance of areas susceptible to dripping, staining or leaking hydrocarbons.

They can be placed under machines to protect the area or when carrying out transfers that usually cause leaks or drips of a substance.

Oil Absorbents are used in areas contaminated with oily liquids, even on the surface of the water because they are water-repellent.

  • They are made of polypropylene fibers that provide great absorption capacity.
  • They are safe because they are chemically inert.
  • The white colour makes it easier to control the degree of saturation, making it more efficient.
  • High buoyancy even when fully saturated.

It comes in different formats:

All the formats are of exactly the same composition, the only thing that changes is the form, to facilitate its application.

Sheets: They are usually used when the socks already delimit the stain, to absorb oil, fuel and other hydrocarbons.
Rolls: They are used just like the sheets but are for cases where the amount of oil spilled is greater.
Socks: They are the first format that is applied around the stain, to control that it does not spread.
Pillows: They are used just like the sheets, but in cases of larger quantities.
• Booms: They are used in the same way as socks but in cases of large quantities of spilled substance, or for the prevention of contamination. They are placed near the area of the potential spill, so that in case of accidental release, there is a relative time to prevent the pollutant from spreading and reaching the river, sea, etc.
