Oil Spill Solidification Clean Up
A solidification particulate that is listed on the EPA's National Contingency Plan (NCP) Schedule, Oil Bond® is applied directly to oil on water or solid surfaces. Oil in water is absorbed into the Oil Bond® and rapidly turns into a solid cohesive material that is removable from water. Oil Bond® is available in 10-pound pails and 40-pound bags.
Oil Bond® is applied to the oil and immediately absorbs the oil while turning darker in color. After a few minutes the cup can be inverted and the solidified oil and water are retained. No liquid escapes
The solidified oil is removed in one piece leaving uncontaminated water.
In a utility vault Oil Bond® is used to absorb transformer oil off the surface of water. The solidified oil was removed from the water surface the next day in one solid sheet. The oil will also solidify within one hour if quicker removal time is required but will be removed in smaller solid pieces. There may still be an oil sheen but that can be removed with other SPI products.
