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.
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.
3M™ Sorbent products take on the characteristics of the liquid they absorb. Take adequate precautions when handling or storing hazardous/inflammable materials and wear appropriate personal protective equipment. Dispose of only in accordance with local and national regulations. The buyer shall determine the suitability of the products both in terms of 'safety' and 'fitness for application' and shall not rely upon any representations made by or on behalf of 3M. All dimensions and capacities quoted are approximate.
