For plant, tools or equipment requiring refueling and have the potential to spill or leak hydrocarbons.
Enviropad® is a cost-effective solution for tool and plant spill or leakage. Hydrocarbon is captured and encapsulated in our smart polymer*, preventing hydrocarbons from leaving the spill/drip pad area. The pad allows unpolluted water to freely drain away from the pad.
Enviropad® eliminates the necessity of a drip tray and the potential to further spill. Our pads remove the risk of moving/ transporting oil and water polluted trays and their lightweight, compact size means they’re easy to transport and store. Used pads can be disposed of in a standard hazardous waste container.
Green Rhino CG1 Polymer is a blend of polymers that is specifically blended to capture and retain hydrocarbons such as oil, diesel, petrol, hydraulic fluid, transformer liquid and more. The polymers are capable of completely solidifying the hydrocarbon until it becomes a solid mass that will not leak – this offers an incredibly effective method for managing and removing unwanted waste oils from the environment. The white granular powder works by having a physical attraction with hydrocarbons. On contact with the hydrocarbon the viscosity increases creating a solid rubber like substance that will not leak, even under pressure. Once the polymers are activated by contact with hydrocarbon, the oil is locked in permanently and cannot be released. The polymers are non-toxic, non-carcinogenic and have no special COSHH requirements. They are used in a variety of our filtration solutions to create very simple but effective techniques for preventing unwanted hydrocarbons entering the environment.
