New Pig Introduces First Industrial Absorbent Mat with Recycled Polypropylene Content

Tipton, PA, July 15, 2009 - New Pig Corporation has re-introduced their original PIG® 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 PIG® 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 PIG® Universal Mat is available in size, weight and packaging options for virtually any application.
