A cup full of water with oil floating on the surface has Oil Bond® applied to the oil.
Oil Bond® is applied to the oil and it 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.
SPI Oil Spill Pillows The SPI Oil Bond® Pillow on the left is fully absorbed with oil; the Oil Bond® pillow on the right is unused.
The Oil Bond® pillows are cut open, showing the used pillow fully absorbed with oil at up to five times its unused weight. Unused media can be seen in the unused pillow.
