Ultra-Absorbent Tarps®

Catch and trap oil drips before they can reach the ground
  • Use under machinery and equipment to catch fluid leaks during maintenance or repairs.
  • Rolls or folds into a small package — store in vehicles for onsite repairs.
  • Keep floors free of oily mess — reduce slip hazards.
  • Three-layer system provides maximum protection:
  1. Top layer: UV resistant geotextile fabric — allows oils to pass through.
  2. Middle layer: Absorbent core — oil-only polypropylene traps oils but allows stormwater to evaporate.
  3. Bottom layer: Impermeable backing keeps drips from leaching through to the ground or shop floor.
  • Helps comply with NPDES, 40 CFR 122.26 (1999).

Frequently Asked Questions

How much can the Ultra-Absorbent Tarp absorb?
The Absorbent Tarps absorb .12 gallons per square foot. So the two standard sizes: 5' x 5' and 10' x 10' absorb 3.0 gallons (11L) and 12.0 gallons (45L) respectively.

 

 

Are Ultra-Absorbent Tarps heavy/hard to transport?
When new/unused, the 5' x 5' Absorbent Tarps weigh only 3 lbs. (1.5 Kg) and the 10' x 10' Absorbent Tarps weight only 12 lbs. (5.5 Kg) so they are very easily transported.

 

 

What are the different layers of the Absorbent Tarp?
The Ultra-Absorbent Tarp is made with three layers to make it more effective. Each layer has a different "responsibility": 

  • The top layer is a UV resistant geotextile fabric which allows oils to pass through.
  • The middle layer is an absorbent core. It is made of an oil-only polypropylene that  traps oils but allows stormwater to evaporate.
  • The bottom layer is an impermeable backing that keeps drips from leaching through to the ground or shop floor.
