Frequently Asked Questions
The absorbent tarps absorb .12 gallons per square foot. So the two standard sizes: 5′ x 5′ and 10′ x 10′ absorb 3.0 gallons (11L) and 12.0 gallons (45L) respectively.
When new/unused, the 5′ x 5′ absorbent tarps weigh only 3 lbs. (1.5 Kg) and the 10′ x 10′ absorbent tarps weight only 12 lbs. (5.5 Kg) so they are very easily transported.
The Ultra-Absorbent Tarp is made with three layers to make it more effective. Each layer has a different “responsibility”:
- The top layer is a UV resistant geotextile fabric which allows oils to pass through.
- The middle layer is an absorbent core. It is made of an oil-only polypropylene that traps oils but allows stormwater to evaporate.
- The bottom layer is an impermeable backing that keeps drips from leaching through to the ground or shop floor.
