The Best Solution to Outdoor Oil Leaks and Drips: Investing in the Right Absorbents

If you’re dealing with outdoor oil leaks and drips, your best solution is to invest in the right absorbents. You need high-quality, UV-resistant absorbents specifically engineered for outdoor applications that efficiently soak up spills and prevent them from spreading or causing harm to the environment.

The Problem: Traditional oil absorbent mats are not designed for outdoor applications.

When it comes to outdoor oil leaks and drips, traditional oil-absorbent mats simply aren’t effective. That’s because they weren’t designed for outdoor applications and pose several challenges. Through interactions with our customers, we’ve found that conventional oil-absorbent mats:

  • don’t work well when it is raining, the rainwater creates a barrier on the oil spill mat and carries the oil off and onto the surface below
  • don’t absorb much oil or fuel, especially in wet conditions
  • degrade and turn to powder when exposed to UV light
  • allow leaks to “bleed through” and reach the ground underneath

The Solution: Husky Polyback Oil Absorbent Rugs are specifically engineered for outdoor leaks & drips.

Husky Polyback Oil Absorbent Rugs are a game-changing solution for outdoor applications. Our absorbent rugs are designed to endure the toughest weather conditions, and they’re engineered to instantly capture and hold onto oil that leaks and drips from valves, fittings, pipelines, hoses, equipment, tools, and everything else you need to store outdoors. And, because they’re UV-resistant, they’ll stays on the job day and night for up to two years or until fully saturated.

Husky Polyback Oil Absorbent Rugs are great for covering larger areas and soaking up small to medium-sized leaks. Each rug is 32” x 48” and absorbs up to 3.2 gallons each.

Pro Tip: Use Husky Polyback Oil Absorbent Rugs as the perfect emergency response tool to deploy under a stormwater outfall where oily water may escape.
