Use general purpose absorbent booms to absorb spills of most non-aggressive liquids including coolant, solvent, degreaser, paint, blood, bodily fluids, mild chemicals and hydrocarbons such as oil, fuel, diesel and petrol.

These booms are also known as universal or all-liquid absorbent socks.

General purpose poly booms (socks) are colour-coded grey for quick identification. They are ideal for incidental spills of non-aggressive liquids.

Use general purpose absorbent booms to create a barrier for everyday spill clean ups in workshops, schools, factories and warehouses - any areas where liquids may be spilled.

  • Ideal for use in industrial workplaces: factories, mine sites, maintenance workshops, warehouses, panel beaters, paint shops, fuel handling and oil storage depots, vehicle repair shops or transport facilities
  • High absorbency ratio for spills, leaks and drips
  • Durable, non-allergenic and non-hazardous 
  • Won't degrade or chemically react with absorbed liquids
  • Poly booms can be squeezed and re-used
  • Simple and easy to use 

Manufactured in Australia

Actual absorbent capacity will vary depending on the liquid viscosity, specific gravity and temperature of the spill. General purpose absorbents are made from surface-modified polypropylene (high absorbent capacity). Booms can absorb up to 20 times their own weight in liquid by encapsulating the liquid within the polypropylene’s fine fibres.
