Drive My Car

Do you know how many songs have the word “drive” in the title? Neither do we, but an Internet search turned up at least a hundred. That’s a lot of driving, though admittedly, not all refer to four wheels and an engine. But you get the drift.

We are a car culture. Especially in California, which has the second highest number of highway miles in the U.S. And now that it’s the start of summer, more people will be taking to the road than ever. You know what that means: pack snacks. Plan for pit stops. And prepare for emergencies.

Whether you drive for a living or just feel that way, one of the best products for a long road trip is the 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 also non-toxic and non-flammable.

Another excellent road buddy is the Spill Berm. Compact and designed to stow behind your truck seat or in the cab of most equipment, the portable spill berm may be more valuable than your GPS.

When you spring an unexpected leak (because when is a leak ever expected?), just place the durable spill berm, which can be prefit with a disposable absorbent pad, to catch the liquid. The berm is specially coated to remain useable at temperatures as low as -65°F and as high as 130°F, andcan withstand hot automotive fluids including oil, brake fluid, diesel, gasoline, coolants and acids.

Finally think about keeping a bag of XSORB Edge Aggressivein the trunk or cab. XSORB Edge lifts liquids from the surface so you can easily scrub away synthetic oils, petroleum, hydraulic fluids and fuel spills. It’s as heavy as clay, but a far superior cleaner — and non-toxic to both humans and the environment.

So enjoy your time on the road this summer, or whenever life places you behind the wheel. You provide the wheels, the tunes, the nibbles. If a leak or spill situation happens, Impact Absorbents has your back.
