Press release date: July 15, 2009

Tipton, PA, July 15, 2009 - New Pig Corporation has re-introduced their original PIGŪ Universal Mat for effective clean up and absorption of leaks, spills and drips - now with 50% recycled polypropylene content to help reduce environmental impact.

The eco-friendly PIGŪ Universal Mat still retains all of the features that have made it the most popular mat on the market:

o 100% polypropylene (now made with 50% recycled polypropylene content)
o eight thermally-bonded layers - tough, durable, will not rip, tear or fray - even when saturated
o highly absorbent - retains oils, coolants, solvents and water
o fine-fiber construction -- increases liquid retention capabilities
o exclusive dimple pattern -- speeds wicking of liquid for faster, easier cleanup
o non-reactive and compatible with most chemicals
o perforated - tears easily to size needed
o reusable and can also be incinerated to reduce waste
o flame-resistant
o dark gray color -- hides grime keeping the Mat on the job longer - saving time and money

Ideal for both small cleanup tasks and larger spills, the PIGŪ Universal Mat is available in size, weight and packaging options for virtually any application. For more information on other PIGŪ products with recycled content, or to find out what PIGŪ Mat is best for specific applications, a PIGŪ Mat Selection guide is available at

PIGŪ Universal Mat helps to comply with Regulatory Citation 29 CFR 1910.22(a)(2).
