ADSORB VS ABSORB
Each ROC Oil Cling Pad uniquely holds oil in the pad when removed from the water. This process is called ‘adsorb’. The multi-layered, multi-surfaced polyethylene pads are oleophilic (oil attracting) and hydrophobic (water repelling).
The laminate film is an oil-adsorbing poly material that floats on water but will not absorb water.
Each pad adsorbs 20 – 30x its weight in hydrocarbons, holding up to 40% more than conventional pads.
HOW IT WORKS
Each pad has perforated holes. When placed on a spill, the hydrocarbons travel across the pad finding the perforated holes. Hydrocarbons migrate inside, covering each ply and all surfaces of the pad.
ROC Oil Cling Pads can be recycled, and the oil collected from pads can be reclaimed. ROC Oil Cling Pads can be stored easily. A package of 250 14″ x 14″ pads weighs less than 2lbs and is only 1″ high.
