Universal Absorbent Mat Pads: convenience in a bag
PIG Universal Mat Pads are uber tough, and designed to soak up oils, coolants, solvents and water. Being smaller than PIG Universal Absorbent Mat Rolls, they are ideal to catch everyday drips and leaks, and to soak up smaller spills for quick spill response.
a) What are absorbing pads?
Absorbing pads are simply an absorbent that’s manufactured into a convenient small shape — in this case, a mat shape. We stock both a light-weight and heavy-weight mat pad.
The mat pads have easy-tear perforations so you only use what you need, saving mat and money! These mat pads lasts twice as long as ordinary mats, so that means fewer change-outs (again, saving you money).
b) Absorbing pad mat FAQs
Q. What are these absorbent mat pads made of?
A. Our New Pig universal absorbent mat pads have 8 layers of 100% polypropylene, with 50% recycled content.
Q. Are they strong?
A. Yes! Being thermally bonded, makes them the strongest mat on the market. Even when they’re saturated these mat pads won't rip, tear or fray.
Q. What do universal absorbent mat pads soak up?
A. The universal absorbent mat pads absorb most common industrial liquids, so oils, water, solvents and coolants, and so on.
Q. How long do they take to soak up liquids?
A. These mat pads have a dimple pattern (exclusive to New Pig) that quickly wicks liquid throughout the entire mat, so they’re quick and clean-up is easier.
Q. How long can I leave them down, and do they leave “bits” hanging around?
A. Universal mat pads have a fine-fibre construction and are highly absorbent, so they won't leave spills or their own fibre residue behind. And because their dark grey colour hides the absorbed leaks and drips, you can leave them down twice as long as other mats. And once you’ve finished, wring them out and incinerate to reduce waste or for fuels blending.
