Maintenance, Oil-only or Chemical Absorbents - What's in the colour?

  • Grey coloured absorbent products – referred to as Maintenance, General Purpose or Universal absorbents are for all non-aggressive liquids both water and oil based.
  • White coloured absorbent products – referred to as Oil-only absorbents are 'hydrophobic' and repel water. This makes them ideal for absorbing and retaining oil and fuel spillages and are particularly effective outdoors. Hydrophobic absorbents will float on water, even when fully saturated with oil allowing easy pick up and disposal
  • Yellow coloured absorbent products – referred to as Chemical absorbents provide a clear visual warning when aggressive fluids such as acids, caustics or unknown substances need to be cleaned up. Chemical spills can be extremely hazardous and should not be cleaned up without appropriate training and selection of the correct personal protective equipment (PPE).
