Oil Only Spill Kits contain mainly ‘hydrophobic’ absorbents and therefore will only absorb hydrocarbon based liquids, such as fuel, oil and solvents. They will also 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 an ‘Oil Only’ Spill Kit, as the absorbents will absorb your hydrocarbon spill even if it is raining.
