Standard polypropylene oil only sorbents are typically used to skim oil off of water. The open fiber construction draws hydrocarbon-based fluids into the center of pads and/or rolls, while repelling water. This type of media is the most economical family of pads and rolls, yet it absorbs quicker and more than the other product familes. The antistatic absorbent is for use in dry, cold climates. It selectively absorbs oil and repels water for outdoor use.
