3M™ Oil Sorbents are an innovative range of highly absorbent, quality products. Being hydrophobic, (repels water) they are ideal for absorbing oil from areas where water may also be present – exterior locations for example. 3M Oil Sorbents will not disintegrate or sink, even when saturated with oil, and are very easy to dispose of.
The right solution when quick response is needed. Can be used with most hydrocarbon based liquids and repel aqueous based liquids. Available in 5-and 31-gallon spill kits and a 4-gallon response pack with mini-booms and pads.
Offers all the benefits of 3M`s standard oil sorbents with the added benefit of increased fluid handling capacity which reduces sorbent usage and waste.
Recovery is simple and rapid. As with 3M™ Maintenance Sorbents, 3M™ Oil Sorbents are available in a wide range of convenient formats - each designed to enhance spill management and maximise pollution control.
3M Oil Sorbents are made from inert, synthetic fibres principally polypropylene for `T` oil sorbents and polypropylene and polyester for `HP`. They are available in a wide range of formats and are lightweight and dust free. They have a high absorbption capacity which minimises the amount of waste for disposal. HP antistatic products have a charge dissipating polypropylene scrim and are packaged in charge-dissipating film.
