New Pig Introduces Pig Oil-Only Weighted Blanket

weightedblanket2.jpgTIPTON, PA, September 1, 2010 -- New Pig Corporation has recently introduced the PIG® Oil-Only Weighted Blanket to capture leaks and drips outdoors, even in windy conditions.

The PIG® Oil-Only Weighted Blanket features a hydrophobic polypropylene filler that absorbs petroleum-based liquids but no water. The Blanket's durable, spunbond outer shell is guaranteed to resist UV rays for 12 months –even in the sunniest location - and repels water to preserve the efficiency of the filler. Heavy-duty seams form self-contained pockets within the Blanket to maximize coverage area and keep the filler evenly distributed.

Ideal for leaky transformers or areas where heavy equipment is parked, the PIG® Oil-Only Weighted Blanket stays in place without blowing out of position or onto wires, capacitors or transformers. Ballasts provide extra weight and grommeted corners allow the Blanket to be staked down.

The PIG® Oil-Only Weighted Blanket helps to comply with 40 CFR 112.7 and 40 CFR 122.26

In 1985, New Pig invented the first contained absorbent, the Original PIG® Absorbent Sock, changing leak and spill management forever. Built around its award-winning Pigalog® catalog, innovative product line, and legendary service, the company has thrived. Now a multi-channel, multi-brand supplier of innovative liquid management solutions and industrial maintenance products to industrial, institutional, and government facilities in over 70 countries, PIG® products, services, and technical expertise help workplaces stay safe, clean, and in compliance.

The company's 500 + page Pigalog® catalog features a wide variety of exclusive and innovative PIG® Brand products, including the largest selection of absorbent socks, mats, pillows, pans, and booms in the world. In addition, the expanding product line includes material handling equipment, personal protection apparel, spill response supplies, disposable and pre-moistened wipers, and other workplace safety products.
