Oil Solidifying Polymers
Justrite's oil solidifying polymer technology has revolutionized the way the electric utility industry accomplishes SPCC-compliant secondary oil containment for substations and transformers.
Our flagship product, Justrite oil solidifying polymers (formerly known as C.I.Agent® Oil Solidifying Polymers*), is an integral part of most of the products we create and manufacture. Justrite polymers are the only oil solidifier that works on a full spectrum of hydrocarbons ranging from low-end gasoline to heavy crude oil, even FR3, due to possessing a long chain molecular structure that is highly cross-linking with organic liquid hydrocarbons.
The differentiator of our solidifying polymer from other oil solidifiers is that it is a proprietary blend of several USDA food-grade polymers, which allows the "recipe" to be altered to meet challenging hydrocarbon properties. Justrite solidifying polymers are non-toxic, non-corrosive, non-carcinogenic, non-hazardous and solidify hydrocarbons into an inert, solid, rubber-like mass as it suppresses their harmful vapors.
Justrite Solidifying Polymers have been tested non-harmful to aquatic plant and animal life and waterfowl. The oil solidifier creates a byproduct that is 100 percent recyclable in most landfills, can be used as raw material for asphalt, rubber and plastic production, or can be burned as fuel.
*C.I.Agent Oil Solidifying Polymers, owned by The Justrite Safety Group, is listed on the EPA National Contingency Plan Product Schedule as a "Solidifier" for use on oil spills in the navigable waters of the United States.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do Justrite solidifying polymers differ from other solidifiers in the marketplace?
Justrite's oil solidifier is a proprietary blend of several different polymers. Other solidifiers on the market are made up of only one or two co-polymers. Justrite offers the only solidifier that works instantly on the full spectrum of hydrocarbons ranging from low-end gasolines to heavy crude oil.
