On the Road Again…

Motorcycle madness. Hotrod hoo-ha. In summer, a young man’s fancy turns to… burning rubber, with lots of noise and buddies. It’s not the sport of choice for those who prefer a more serene setting, but for engine enthusiasts, nothing compares to donning a helmet and taking to the open road.

As long as, to quote Sailcat’s lyrics, “the chain don’t break.” Or the oil doesn’t leak. Or the transmission fluid. Or the coolant. You get the idea. Whether you drive on two wheels, four, or eighteen, it pays to be prepared for transportation spill emergencies.

XSORB wants to keep you compliant with the rules of the road. Our transportation spill containment and spill clean up products will help you handle those unexpected spills — and keep them from spreading. From the roadway to the repair shop, oil, gas, transmission fluid, brake fluid, coolants, and solvents all present a challenge when spilled. That’s why Impact Absorbent has created a range of products to answer the needs of the road warrior.

First off, in an emergency, try Plug ‘n Dike Premix Pattie. Plug ‘n Dike seals off fuels, solvents and many other chemicals by immediately sticking to most surfaces, including dented and dirty drums with leaking fluid. There’s no surface prep required. Of course, it’s non-toxic and non-flammable.

Then, use XSORB Outdoor All-Purpose Absorbent to solidify and sweep away that oil spill or unexpected grease. The heavier formula stays down even in slightly windy conditions. Need an even tougher solution for your transportation mishap? XSORB Edge Aggressive lifts liquids from the surface so you can easily scrub away synthetic oils, petroleum, hydraulic fluids and fuel spills. Asphalt and concrete surfaces will be clean and dry, not slippery. What’s more, while XSORB Edge is as heavy as clay, XSORB’s aggressive wicking action makes it a superior cleaner. And the dark gray color blends with surroundings, with no visible white residue. It makes spill clean up a snap! (Be sure not to use with hydrofluoric acid.)

There are also numerous poly sorbent pads and rolls formulated for transportation spill containment, such as FiberLink Universal Absorbent pads, FiberDuck Bonded Oil Absorbent Rolls, and ColdForm Universal and Oil-Only pads — which we offer recycled, to keep you doubly environmentally friendly! And as with every other industry we serve, Impact Absorbents provides numerous spill kits for transportation spill clean up and safety.

So enjoy your time on the road this summer, or whenever life calls you to get behind the wheel. Impact Absorbents has your back.
