PIG® Oil-Only Railroad Absorbent Mat - MAT465


Specially made to absorb oils and fuels around railroad tracks during railcar maintenance.

  • Heavyweight
  • 150cm W x 30m L
  • Absorbs up to 227 L/bag
  • 1 roll/bag


  • 150cm width roll fits right between standard rails; 48cm width roll (MAT466, sold separately) can be used on the outside of rails
  • This heavy-duty three-ply mat is designed specifically to absorb oils and fuels, not water, from railcars during railyard maintenance
  • Top layer is constructed with a tough geotextile fabric for added durability; UV resistant for outdoor use
  • Highly absorbent polypropylene middle layer traps oils but allows rainwater to evaporate; bottom barrier film prevents liquids from leaching into the ground
  • Border along outside edge provides for convenient tacking and prevents leakage
  • Won’t rip, tear or fray even when saturated; liquids absorb quickly for faster, easier cleanups and safer workplaces
  • Mat rolls can be cut with a utility knife or scissors
  • Mats take on the properties of absorbed liquids - always take proper precautions when handling saturated absorbents
