Oil Absorbent Pads, also known as Oil Spill Mats are ‘hydrophobic’ absorbents and therefore will only absorb hydrocarbon based liquids, such as fuel, oil and solvents, but actively repel water. They will float on water whilst absorbing hydrocarbons on the surface, and can therefore be used in the marine environment.

If you only have the potential to spill hydrocarbon based fluids at your workplace or from your vehicle, and the spill may happen outdoors, choose Oil Absorbent Pads.
