August 11, 2009
Reintroducing the manufacturer''s universal mat, which is now made with 50 percent recycled polypropylene content to help reduce environmental impact. The mats are great for effective clean up and absorption of leaks, spills and drips, according to the manufacturer. The eco-friendly universal mat features: 100% polypropylene (now made with 50% recycled polypropylene content); eight thermally-bonded layers – tough, durable, will not rip, tear or fray – even when saturated; highly absorbent - retains oils, coolants, solvents and water; fine-fiber construction -- increases liquid retention capabilities; exclusive dimple pattern -- speeds wicking of liquid for faster, easier cleanup; non-reactive and compatible with most chemicals; perforated – tears easily to size needed; reusable and can also be incinerated to reduce waste; and flame-resistant. Ideal for both small cleanup tasks and larger spills, the universal mat is available in size, weight and packaging options for virtually any application.
