TIPTON, Pa. -- New Pig Corp. has introduced the PIG® Oil-Only Absorbent Mat with Color Flare™ Technology specifically designed to change color to reveal light-colored oil leaks that are nearly invisible on standard absorbents.

The unique Mat is composed of Oil-Only Mat and an outer spunbond layer that contains oil-indicating wax dots. The dots dissolve in oil to release dye, and the Mat “flares” bright blue to provide a clear visual indication that mineral oil or hydraulic fluid is leaking. Ideal for both indoor and outdoor use, the PIG® Oil-Only Mat with Color Flare™ Technology, is UV-resistant, repels water and is impervious to rain and other wet conditions.

Excellent for areas where equipment and machinery are stored outdoors, the Color Flare™ Technology provides an instant alert to problem leaks and drips. This technology also makes routine inspections of outdoor generators, power units and other equipment faster and easier – no flare = no leaks!

The PIG® Oil-Only Absorbent Mat with Color Flare™ Technology aids in compliance with 29 CFR 1910.22(a)(2), 40 CFR 112.7 and 40 CFR 122.26. For more information on this or any of New Pig Corporation’s products, please visit or call 1-800-HOT-HOGS.
