This plain open meltblown polypropylene has been deisgned for maximum capacity. It is hydrophobic which means it can float on water and a high loft to increase absorbency. This pad retains it strength even when it is saturated and has been designed to absorb all oils and fuels. It will repel water coolants,solvents and other non-hydrocarbon products. The 100% top grade polypropylene construction can be easily indicated when oil has been absorbed. It has been specifically manufactured with performance and endurance in mind to be used with day to day spills in any environment.
