Enviropad® is a cost-effective solution for tool and plant spill, leakage or storage. Hydrocarbon is captured and encapsulated in its smart polymer*, preventing contaminants from leaving the spill/drip area whilst allowing unpolluted water to drain away.
What’s great about Enviropad® is that it eliminates the necessity of a drip tray and the potential to further spill. 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 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.
