So you’ve got an oily mess. But you don’t want — or need — to pick up any water. What do you do? Head straight for PIG Oil-Only Absorbent Mat! Our oil-only mats are pretty fierce, but frankly, they are 100% hydrophobic. That literally means afraid of water. They simply won’t absorb even a single drop of water. This is great for you, because it means they can actually float on water to absorb oil. And they are also great at absorbing oil on land. You even have options depending on your situation: PIG Oil-Only Absorbent Mat, PIG Stat-Mat and PIG Oil-Only UV-Resistant Mat.
PIG Oil-Only Absorbent Mat
Your situation is pretty standard: You just need to absorb oil, want to repel water, and have no challenging conditions to deal with. PIG Oil-Only Absorbent Mat gets the job done — affordably and efficiently. It comes in white, which makes absorbed oil easier to see and draws attention to machine leaks; brown, which hides grime, so the mat can stay on the job longer; and the exclusive Ham-O, which actually makes grime invisible. And, well, it just looks cool.
Suppose things are a little more complicated. You have fuel spills or solvent to clean up in an area where an electrostatic discharge would be a very bad thing. For flammable oil-based liquids, we recommend PIG Stat-Mat. While our standard oil-only mats are intended to absorb nonflammable oil-based liquids, PIG Stat-Mat is treated with a static-dissipative solution to reduce static charge. This lessens the chance of fire when absorbing flammable oil-based liquids like jet fuel, diesel and gasoline. We even package PIG Stat-Mat in an antistatic bag to reduce the static charge even more. Being extra-cautious never hurt anyone.
PIG Oil-Only UV-Resistant Mat
You have an outdoor installation where you need oil-absorbent mats that are long-lasting, weather-durable and don’t disintegrate into dust from sun exposure. Standard oil-only mats work well outdoors but could degrade after weeks of direct sunlight. PIG Oil-Only UV-Resistant Mat is what you want. These absorbent mats are designed to withstand 12 months of direct sunlight. That’s 12 hours per day, every day of the year for 12 months, without absorbing a single drop of water or degrading a bit. PIG Oil-Only UV-Resistant Mats are perfect for hard-to-reach, outdoor locations where mat change-outs are harder to do.
