PetroGuard-D Oil Spill Solidifying Absorbent

PetroGuard Oil Spill Absorbent

The Original Solidifying Oil Spill Absorbent

PetroGuard D is a unique and proprietary oil spill absorbent. It is a dry, white granular high capacity super absorbent polymer that instantly absorbs and solidifies oil and other hydrocarbons. PetroGuard-D oil spill absorbent will permanently solidify fuel and other oil products by encapsulation, making it easier and more cost effective to respond to oil spills on land or water.

As an oil spill absorbent, its unique characteristic is that liquid petroleum products and other liquid hydrocarbons are converted to a solid matrix. Once absorbed PetroGuard-D will not leach even under pressure and will float indefinitely. The application of PetroGuard-D will dramatically reduce or eliminate the production of flammable vapors.
