Spill Fab Enviromental Fence A Oleophilic & Hydrophobic Material
Oleophilic -Chemistry having a strong affinity for liquids, including petroleum oils and fats.
Hydrophobic Chemistry having little or no affinity for water.The shell repels water with a breathable hydrophobic polymer, while the lining wicks away moisture and sweat leaving the petroleum product
Spill Fab Enviromental Fence absorbs the water and oil, as the water drops out are evaporates the oil remains, this is how the enviro-fence is able to absorb sheen.
Tucker I am sorry and embarrassed that I haven't gotten back to you sooner, with things around here the priorities were changing as Operations needs did. Last week, we received word that we are no longer supposed to pursue any type of barrier boom tactics - However, we are still planning to have some biorestoration test sites in the marshes so I have forwarded your product to the folks there to take a look at. It may help them with isolating areas and marking them if they have that need. Again, I apologize for the lateness of this note.

Thank you so much for getting back to me with the information. I am going to forward your information to some folks in Wildlife Operations. I think it may have some applicability for cleaning manitees, should they get oiled. Since they are so large, we may not want to transport them to a facility, so may need to do it in an enclosed area that is easy to deploy in the water. I will keep you posted. I will also look for your information in the database. Best Regards.

Spill Fab Fence: refers to a highly effective, super strong fabric, each rolls size consist of 40" in height , and 600' length with a 11/2 cardboard core in the middle, fabric rolls or available in a wide range of colors white, orange, black and Etc. The Oleophilic & Hydrophobic fence is used in removal of a spill petroleum in the most challenging environments, very Easy to transport, install and maintain
Posting: refers to 6 steel T- post, spacing should be 4-5 ft. apart and 5-6 ft. in low stress areas the average post depth in the soil should 2 to 2.5 sometimes companies run a nylon string line and attach paper clamps to the fabric and attach to the string to help eliminate sagging
Attachment: refers two generally accepted methods to properly securing the fabric to the Steel T-posted
1- Open water- using a 10-12 falt boat, run a T-post or tree branch through the middle of the cardboard core and secure the T-post with baling wire to the back of the boat in the front of the last seat leaving the fence fabric to unroll freely, the area between the back seat and the transit with be the area to store all tools are a tool box. 1- The employee's will secure the bitter end of the Spill-Fab Enviro-Fence to a T-post by making a full wrap fabric around the T-post, using 3 pieces of 6 in length baling wire " cut to a point " which he can be pre cut employees can hang them to the straps of his life jackets, he will than be the employee on the front side of the fabric his job will be to punch the wire through the fabric starting at the top, then the middle, then an arm's length below the water surface, the employee on the front side will pull tight on the fence fabric as moves backward while stepping on the fabric leaving a 4-6 in over lay on the ground under the water surface this method and the backward movement of the boat will tighten the Spill-Fab Enviro-Fence. The 2nd person on the back side will help pull on the top of the fence and twist the ends of the wire with a flat tip wire cutter, he will make sure to bend the tips to the side, once attached to the first post. The 3rd employee will slowly back the boat up as the fabric will unroll on the inside of the flat-boat, employee's can then begin securing the fence fabric to the remaining T-Post
2- Swamp run a T-post or tree branch through the middle of the cardboard core leaving the fence fabric to unroll freely, secure the bitter end of the Spill-Fab Enviro-Fence to a T-post by making a full wrap fabric around the T-post, using 3 pieces of 6 in length baling wire cut to a point , 1- employee on the front side of the fabric will punch the wire through the fabric starting at the top, then the middle, then 5 from the ground surface while moving backwards he steps on the fence fabric to help tighten , the 2nd person on the back side will help pull to tighten the fence as he twist the end of the wire with flat tip wire cutter, while he makes sure to bend the tips to the side, once attached to the first post 2 other employes slowly pull backwards while helping to tighten the Spill-Fab Enviro-Fence then all employees will begin securing the fence fabric to the remaining T-Post
Properly installed spill fab Enviro-Fence fence is the most effective containment and absorbent device available on the market today
