Lab tests show that white spill sheets cannot be squeezed and reused. In fact, they retain 85% to 90% of the oil. That’s good when cleaning up an oil spill. But, it makes them very unsustainable.
In a perfect world, you could simply pick up a saturated oil spill sheet, then you would wring it out, recover the oil and lay it back down. Again and again. But in the white oil spill sheet world, that can’t happen. Why?
Because the polypropylene fibers they use to make the sheets are very stiff. They are packed tightly together. There’s just no “give” in the sheets. However, all the white spill sheet makers admit these products are NOT reusable and they are not about to change. Why?
White sheet manufacturers have millions of dollars invested in their meltblown polypropylene manufacturing equipment. One producer reportedly dropped a cool $25 million on their latest setup. They gotta get a return on their investment by keeping their machines busy all the time.
In comparison, Spilltration® Husky Liner Pads act more like a sponge. You can squeeze out 80% of the oil in a mop bucket and reuse the pads up to ten times. You can also recover the oil for recycling. So if you like the idea of using durable products over and over, Spilltration® Husky Liner Pads are right up your alley.
