Are You Blue? That Can Be Positive!

Even in these challenging times, feeling blue can be a good thing. Here’s how:

Each year, the Pantone Color Institute announces a color of the year. 2020 is Classic Blue, which Pantone calls, “a deep blue shade that’s at once comforting and relatable.”

As we all know, there are many shades of blue — so many that the color lends itself to myriad song titles (Blue Suede Shoes, Blue Bayou, Crystal Blue Persuasion, Tangled Up In Blue, Blue Sky…) and even shows up in cinema, such as this memorable scene in which an imperious Meryl Streep deconstructs exactly how Anne Hathaway ended up wearing a pedestrian blue sweater. 

Here at Impact Absorbents, classic blue means our oceans, rivers, lakes and other waterways — and the products we create to protect them from oil spills and other hazards. 

For instance: Oil-Only Socks. Made of 100 percent absorbent fiber filling in a durable polypropylene sleeve, our FiberDuck Oil Absorbent Socks and XSORB Oil Select Socks quickly absorb hydrocarbons such as crude oil, diesel oil, and gasoline. They’re designed to contain spills around machinery or off a water’s surface, and will safely remove all petroleum-based products from boating areas, contaminated barrels, sumps and more — and can be incinerated after use.

Similarly, our Oil Absorbent Booms, made from a special patented hydrophobic fiber and highly UV resistant materials, quickly absorb hydrocarbons such as crude oil, motor oil, diesel oil and gasoline while continuing to float indefinitely. Oil Absorbent Booms will keep leaks and spills from spreading. They’re encased in tough outer netting to resist snags and debris while remaining flexible, and include rings at each end for convenient handling and fastening. 

And these are just a few of the numerous spill containment and spill clean up solutions we offer to protect our waterways. Others include Oil Absorbent Pads, Oil-Only Absorbent Rolls ,Oil-Only Pillows , and XSORB Oil-Select.

Why be blue when it’s so easy to stay marine green? Invest in the spill containment and spill clean up products that will keep our oceans, lakes and rivers Classic Blue, and enjoy those other blue references in music and movies, not in our waterways.
