PomPoms were developed for quick recovery of thick oil-based liquids. The thousands of individual strands pull in oils at 10-50 times their own weight. Works great in subfreezing temperatures. The individual poms work great at cleaning up pilings, rocks, stumps, etc. They can be used in oil/water separators. The poms on a rope can be used over open water and secured to the shoreline. PomPoms are more cost effective than other types of poly sweeps. A “must-have” if you keep oil next to open waterways.
