Designed to absorb and contain hydrocarbon spills including oil, fuel, solvents, petrol & diesel. These absorbents repel water, meaning they are ideal for outdoor environments and when spills occur on waterways such as drains, ports, marinas, harbours, lakes and rivers. The hydrophobic (water repellent) absorbents will float even when fully saturated with oil. Perfect for removing the final sheen from oil spills on water after the bulk clean-up has taken place. The Sweep is dragged over the surface of the water, and the highly absorbent fibres capture the remaining oil slick or sheen.
