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.
"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 400 SERIES (HYDROCARBON) POLYMERS
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.
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
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.
As a result of this vapor suppressive ability, spontaneous combustion and
unintentional spontaneous ignition hazards are almost totally eliminated.
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.
Harmless to fish and wildlife.
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.
The bonded hydrocarbon will never leach from the solidified mass and is
very easy to handle, store or dispose of.
The polymers have an indefinite shelf life.
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.
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.
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.
The polymers will not dissolve in the presence of high or low pH solutions
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.
The polymers can act as a pre-scrubber to carbon filtration by removing
the non-dissolved portion of the hydrocarbons before final filtration.
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.
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.
Typical disposal methods are landfilling or incineration of the waste,
consistent with local, applicable regulations.
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.
The polymer when incinerated produces virtually no ash residue and has
a BTU value of 18,602.
Meets established EPA landfill requirements.
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.
