You've heard it said "Oil & Water Don't Mix." And as a person involved with the marine or shipping industry you're very aware of the governmental resolve to enforce that old saying.

Until now, you've been forced to utilize a variety of different products to assure your compliance and readiness capability. Many of those products are overpriced and work at a level far less than expected.

Problem Solver
"ENVIRO-BOND™" the problem solver.

Introducing ENVIRO-BOND™ Hydrocarbon Polymer, the one product that should be on board every vessel and on every fueling dock. Unlike other products that just absorb spills, ENVIRO-BOND™ Polymer forms a permanent bond with diesel fuel, gasoline, engine oil and many other liquid hydrocarbon products. In fact, ENVIRO-BOND™ literally encapsulates all liquid hydrocarbons. Use it on water, use it in the engine room, use it at the fueling platform, on dry land, in soil, or on hard surfaces. Once applied, ENVIRO-BOND™ Hydrocarbon Polymer begins encapsulation immediately, and within just minutes renders the spill harmless with fast, safe cleanup.

ENVIRO-BOND™ Hydrocarbon Polymers, making sure "Oil & Water Don't Mix." You won't know until you see for yourself.


  1. The 400 series polymers have the ability to bond with diesel fuel, gasoline, waste oils and most other liquid hydrocarbons to form a solid mass.  This is accomplished by an actual molecular bonding, not just a "physical" soaking or sponging, of the liquid hydrocarbon.  With the encapsulation process beginning immediately upon contact between the liquid hydrocarbon and the polymer.
  2. This bonding and solidifying can be accomplished on any surface and a solid and manageable waste product, that will not drip when handled, is typically formed within 10 - 15 minutes after application or sooner.  The application ratios being as high as 1:15 by weight, depending on the type of hydrocarbon being encapsulated.  Clean up is fast, effective and cost efficient and, with less material to buy, store, handle and haul, yielding significant reductions in waste mass generated, the result is a significant reductionof disposal costs.
  3. The ENVIRO-BOND™  polymers have the "unique" ability to suppress vapors and reduce off-gassing by 80% within the first 5 minutes.  The gases/vapors are trapped within the solidified structure and are prevented from migrating to the surface area, yielding almost total elimination of any vapor release over the course of several hours or days depending upon the hydrocarbon that has been solidified.
  4. As a result of this vapor suppressive ability, spontaneous combustion and unintentional spontaneous ignition hazards are almost totally eliminated.
  5. On the surface of water, the polymers, are completely hydrophobic and will float even after maximum encapsulation and solidification.  They will not water wet even in very severe conditions and any unused polymer can be captured and reused.  On any surface, including water, the polymers will only bond with the free hydrocarbon molecules.  Solidifying hydrocarbons into a solid mass on water makes for a much easier surface area cleanup while removing even the most subtle slick or sheen. The polymers packaged in booms and pads make for extremely easy and effective cleanup on water, they are easy to retrieve and will remain floating indefinitely.
  6. Harmless to fish and wildlife.
  7. The polymers can be mixed into soil surfaces where spills frequently occur and left unattended will perform their encapsulation, stabilization and solidification duties as a spill occurs.
  8. The bonded hydrocarbon will never leach from the solidified mass and is very easy to handle, store or dispose of.
  9. The polymers have an indefinite shelf life.
  10. The polymers are FDA Food Grade and are non-toxic, non-corrosive and non-carcinogenic.  No exotic protection needed (goggles & masks suggested), creating safer working conditions, lower exposure risks and reduced liabilities.
  11. The polymers are formulated to react with all organic hydrocarbons, but, are not recommended for use with "synthetic" hydrocarbons when solidification is the desired end result.
  12. The polymer will perform without mixing, and under most conditions simple surface application will be adequate, however, with very thick layers of hydrocarbon, some mixing may be desired for quick and complete solidification.
  13. The polymers will not dissolve in the presence of high or low pH solutions containing water.
  14. The polymers will break oil and water emulsions by bonding with the non-dissolved portion of the hydrocarbon molecule and leaving the water free.  The polymers have the ability to bond and virtually not release heavy metals that may be in solution with the hydrocarbon.
  15. The polymers can act as a pre-scrubber to carbon filtration by removing the non-dissolved portion of the hydrocarbons before final filtration.
  16. If the liquid media containing PCB's is of a hydrocarbon source, the polymers have the ability to encapsulate and solidify the entire mass yielding extremely manageable disposal of a solid form.
  17. The polymers have been found to be extremely effective in the treatment of very hazardous waste by forming a solid mass that is very safe to transport and dispose of.
  18. Typical disposal methods are landfilling or incineration of the waste, consistent with local, applicable regulations.
  19. As a landfilled waste, the non-biodegradable polymer will never leach or release any of the encapsulated and solidified waste liquid's.  Reducing or eliminating your liabilities.
  20. The polymer when incinerated produces virtually no ash residue and has a BTU value of 18,602.
  21. Meets established EPA landfill requirements.
  22. We know, based on multiple independent studies, that ENVIRO-BOND™  polymers far exceed the physical properties and capabilities of the conventional products such as cellulose, spun poly-propylene, ethylene, saw dust, peat-moss, ground foams, clay based absorbents and other such products.
