Article: Spill Pad, Mat, Nappy or Tray – Which is Best?
EnviroPad uses smart polymer technology to capture and solidify oil, fuels and other hydrocarbons. Unlike other spill products which act like a sponge and are prone to leak when saturated, EnviroPad can be stored or carried upright, and even jet washed, without any contaminants escaping into the environment.
Our proprietary CG1 polymer has been specifically blended to attract a wide range of hydrocarbons including oil, diesel, petrol, hydraulic fluid and transformer liquid. The polymer reacts with spills and leaks converting them into solid rubber which cannot escape – even under pressure.
The high-quality mesh outer fabric wicks hydrocarbons across the surface to areas of unused polymer, to ensure you get the most out of every EnviroPad before it needs replacing.
Unlike other ‘spill containment’ products, contaminants will not flush out when EnviroPad is saturated or overflowing with rainwater. EnviroPad removes the risk of moving oil and water polluted trays, and significantly reduces the volume of waste you generate because contaminated water doesn’t pool inside.
Used EnviroPads can be disposed of in a standard hazardous waste container. The polymers are non-toxic, non-carcinogenic and have no special COSHH requirements.
