Man-made polypropylene fibre adsorbents

Meltblown is the term used for polypropylene sorbents. Polypropylene resin (which is plastic) is melted then ‘blown’ as very fine fibres into a mat that can be cut into individual pads or rolled up. Meltblown is best used for recovering aggressive spills or leaks and for recovering oil-based spills on land and especially on large bodies of water.

Two-Ply Meltblown

This combination of material and construction is one of our favourites as it actually has significant benefits. A thin layer of ‘no lint’ spunbond material is sonically attached onto the top surface of the sorbent. This greatly reduces the linting, (fibres coming off easily) and improves the strength considerably. In roll form the product has the big advantage of not being as slippery as other laminated sorbents.
