Oil Mats

Oil Absorbent Recycling Services

Making Your Life Easier

Oil mats are mats made from an absorbent material that will absorb substances (such as oil and grease) from the floor. Polypropylene strips, which are basically plastics, are one of the most common plastics in the world. Made from polypropylene (PP), which is propylene monomers, this plastic is used in a variety of industrial applications, including as product and food packaging. This plastic is a common fiber that is used in absorbent materials.

Brent Industries is a leader in industrial recycling services, including oil absorbent recycling. Our oil mats quickly absorb spills and can hold up to 30 oz of liquid materials. You can use these in your OSHA spill kits or just around your and/or shop. Once used, these oil mats are recommended to be dry cleaned for approximately 15 uses, depending on usage. Then, they are ready to be recycled. If you need oil absorbent recycling services, call us today to get started!

Everyone wants to make their life easier. After all, there are only so many hours in the day in which to get things done, chores marked off your to-do list, and to make progress on your personal and career goals. Plus, you want to have ample time to spend with your family. By investing in oil mats for your spills in your life, you will make spills not a big deal at all.

Brent Industries has been recycling absorbents and textiles for over 40 years. Our sustainable waste management company uses a proprietary dry cleaning process that is closed-looped, meaning we capture and reuse all of our waste and solvent materials, creating very little environmental impact and waste. This special dry cleaning process does create some hazardous waste residuals, which are sent for processing and recycling themselves to be used as a secondary fuel source in cement manufacturing or as an aggregate. Below, we'll take a brief look at the benefits of oil mats. Contact our green waste recycling company today to learn more!


Absorbs Oil & Spills Quickly

Depending on what industry you are in, you may be constantly spilling liquid material on the floor. For example, an automotive repair shop needs oil mats to absorb the drops of oil, fluids, and other liquids used to keep an engine running smoothly that drop to the ground. Restaurants have grease and water that spills on the ground just from the nature of the job. Construction uses heavy equipment where oil and gas can easily be spilled or leaked. Oil mats that are made from the best polypropylene materials can absorb these spills quickly and efficiently. These polypropylene pads trap the spill between its hundreds of plastic strips, making the clean up easy.


Easy to Clean Up

Speaking of easy clean up, you truly can't go wrong with our oil absorbents. These oil mats not only absorb spills quickly, but when you go to pick up the mat, the oil goes with it, making it easy to transport your oil mat to the appropriate container for later cleaning. Other methods of cleaning industrial spills result in a drippy mess that can be more hassle to clean up than the original spill. By choosing oil mats by Brent Industries and then using our oil absorbent recycling services, you'll notice the difference right away in the ease of use.


Creates a Safer Environment

Slips, trips, and falls are real risks that should be avoided at all times. When you have substances spilled on the floor without proper cleanup, it's truly only a matter of time before an accident occurs. By investing in oil mats by Brent Industries, you won't have to worry about spills, clean up, or an accidental slippage that could harm someone. Not only do oil mats create a safer environment for employees and customers, but they can also provide extra traction, ensuring no one slips, trips, or falls at your small business.


Can Help in Ergonomics

Depending on what industry you are in, your employees may be standing for long periods of time. In this case, you not only want a material that can absorb the occasional spill, but one that will be comfortable to stand on. From kitchens and hospitals to factory floors, mats can ease the pressure on employees' spines and help with circulation. They also can make the space quieter, which is great for hearing health, as they absorb sound from the floor and room. This use of Brent Industries' oil mats is a favorite amongst our customers.


Are Easy to Store

Spill kits are a requirement by OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration) in many industries. Spill kits require absorbents so that when or if a spill occurs in your facility, you can respond promptly and quickly, especially if you deal in hazardous materials. Our oil mats are easy to store, they fold up nicely, and they fit most spill kits. Plus, when a spill does occur, these oil mats are easy to roll out and throw over the spill for easy clean up.


Can Be Cleaned, Recycled & Reused

These strong polypropylene oil mats are easy to clean, recycle, and reuse. Once you've cleaned up your spill, or it's time to change out the oil mat that has been absorbing tiny drops of oil over time, you can dry clean these oil mats. Brent Industries offers the best closed-loop dry-cleaning process for your oil mats.

Once cleaned, our cleaning solvents are recovered through either vapor reclaiming dryers or solvent separation recovery units, which allows no vapors to escape into the atmosphere. These solvents are then distilled and refined for further use. Once your oil mats have been cleaned about 15 times, they are probably due to enter our recycling process where we make these oil mats like new again, and the process starts all over again.
