18 out of 18 white spill sheet manufacturers in the USA know they are impotent for controlling outdoor oil leaks. But 17 out of 18 don’t admit it on their websites or sales materials.
White oil spill sheets were developed in the early 1970s. Their primary mission was to throw down on top of an oil spill. Sop up the oil. Then, pick up right away and toss them into the trash. In all honesty, white spill sheets do okay in a throw-down and pick-up quickly mode. But through the years, manufacturers encouraged other uses for white sheets. They promoted the idea of laying the white sheets down under persistent outdoor oil leaks. However, by the early 1980s, the industry knew that white sheets didn’t work well for outdoor oil leaks and drips.
There are 18 manufacturers of white polypropylene spill sheets in the USA, and only 1 out of 18 mentions any of these weaknesses (buried deep in its website). 94.4% of white spill-sheet makers are happy to let you discover it on your own. So much for transparency in advertising. Speaking of percentages, only about 15% of the folks that read this far will take us up on our offer to send them a free Husky Oil Drip Filter Pan. Why? There are lots of reasons, but the main one is simply this, 85% of any group of people wait around until the Early Adopters try things out first.
The question is, are you an innovator? Do you love to be ahead of the curve? If so, now is the perfect time to say, “I was one of the first group of professionals to see the value in the Husky Pan.”
