B3C’s Oil Lock* is a super absorbent that instantly absorbs and solidifies oil and other hydrocarbons through molecular capture, creating a non-leaching, low volumetric barrier that immobilizes the hydrocarbon, which is converted into a solid matrix.
Oil Lock immobilizes spills in water or on land by converting liquid petroleum or hydrocarbons (like fuel) into a solid matrix. Once absorbed, Oil Lock will not leach, even under pressure. This solid matrix, and any remaining oil lock material will float indefinitely (until removed). Oil Lock also reduces or eliminates flammable vapors to reduce the risk of fire or explosion. Finally, oil lock is hydrophobic, meaning it will only absorb the hydrocarbon and will not absorb water. Many wastes when treated with B3C’s Oil Lock will pass EPA 9095 (Paint Filter Test) as well as TCLP.
