The Enviropad is designed for plant, tools or equipment that require refueling and that have the potential to spill or leak hydrocarbons.
These pads give a cost-effective solution for tool and plant spills and leakages, protecting the environment and protecting you!
Hydrocarbon is captured and encapsulated in the smart polymer*, preventing hydrocarbons from leaving the spill/drip pad area. The pad allows unpolluted water to freely drain away from the pad.
The 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 easily be disposed of in a standard hazardous waste container.
The Enviropad 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.
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.
