"Petroleum Sorbent boom can be linked together by built in connectors to overlap and deploy over large areas. They are UV resistant, will not deteriorate or disintegrate and have an inner scrim to eliminate linting. Unlike non-sorbent containment booms, these booms absorb the oil as they aid in containing it. Designed for long-term deployment, they are recommended for controlling and absorbing spills and effluent discharges in ditches, streams, rivers, lakes, and terminal docks and piers.
