3M™ Oil Sorbents are an innovative range of highly absorbent products. Being hydrophobic (repelling water) they are ideal for absorbing oil from places where water may also be present.
Oil Sorbents are available in a wide range of convenient formats – each designed to enhance spill management and maximise pollution control. 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 absorption 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. Features and Benefits include: • Hydrophobic • Cost-effective as oil, not water, is recovered • Can be used outside as well as in-plant.
