3M™ Static Resistant Petroleum sorbents are specifically designed to be used for the safe cleanup of highly flammable petroleum-based liquids. Sorbs hydrocarbon based liquids (oleophilic) and repels aqueous based liquids (hydrophobic)
They are specially treated to resist static charge build-up and can be used effectively and efficiently when conditions are likely to produce static arcing, such as when relative humidity is low (below 20%) or when temperatures fall below freezing. 3M™ Static Resistant Petroleum Sorbents sorb up to twice as much oil and flammable liquid by weight as standard melt-blown static resistant sorbents on land and on water. This results in less sorbent waste, lower cleanup costs, and less time spent cleaning up spills. Each bale absorbs 75 gallons and contains 50 pads.
