The PlantMat

Introducing an exciting new product from Plant Nappy; the PlantMat® is dawning a new era in hydrocarbon absorption.

The PlantMat instantly begins turning oils and fuels into a solid mass within a textile and is also the most cost effective polymer technology available on the market.



Utilising Soliditex® Technology

A brand new composite developed from the ground up to replace existing polymer technologies by using purpose made polymers that not only turn fuels and oils into a solid mass, but effectively offers horizontal and vertical wicking for lightening fast reaction times. Not only does this offer 100% oil/polymer contact, but the sophisticated construction prevents uncontrollable swelling of the Mat with no layer separation keeping everything contained. This patent pending composite also means that water doesn't stand static in the substrate, preventing oils and fuels from being absorbed.

The Ultimate All Weather Solution

The PlantMat has been developed to compliment the market leading product: PlantNappy. By working in conjunction with each other, they offer all weather environmental protection. When risk of rainfall or water contact is high, the PlantMat can be placed inside a Plant Nappy. This allows unrivalled water filtration through the Plant Nappies sidewalls whilst at the same time immobilising oils and fuels.

"At McNab we want to be known for having the best practices in building, safety and the environment. Plant Nappy is one product that gives us this advantage. Plant Nappies are lightweight and easily moved around the site, they are also strong enough to last on our construction sites.

Our construction site is located next to a natural waterway. Plant Nappy gives you the peace of mind working on the Sunshine Coast where we often get afternoon storms and heavy down pours. Knowing that the “drip tray” will never overflow and only clean water will be discharged brings peace to mind."

Adrian Wyatt (Site Manager)

"I have used Plant Nappy products for the past 5 years and they have never let me down. I have used a variety of their products and found the support and service to be professional and prompt.

I have often sought advice on what product would best suit my application and the team at Plant Nappy have always helped and guided me in the right direction. They make spill control easy and one less thing for me to worry about on the project.

The products have helped me stay compliant with the client and statutory requirements and have always outlasted their designed life span."

Shane Gale (Director)
