The Pig absorbent ground tarp from New Pig catches oily leaks and drips from machinery or vehicles before they hit the ground. It can be used as a ground tarp during routine maintenance, or as a barrier to trap equipment leaks. Its heavy-duty three-ply construction comprises a durable geotextile fabric top layer that allows liquid to pass through to the highly absorbent, oil-only polypropylene core that traps oils but lets rainwater evaporate. The non-permeable polyethylene bottom layer keeps captured oil from leaching through to the ground. These reusable, UV-resistant tarps are available in pre-cut and ready-to-use 5-ft or 10-ft squares. The 5-ft squares absorb up to 3 gal, and the 10-ft squares absorb up to 12 gal. Brass corner grommets allow them to be tied in place.
