MEI absorbent socks have multiple uses. Wrap them around the base of leaky drums and machines. Use them as a protective measure by placing them in front of important machinery or entrances, effectively protecting them from liquids and condensation. Absorbents socks are most commonly used to prevent spills from spreading. Use them to create a perimeter around a spill. When using multiple socks to contain larger spills, overlapping the ends of the socks will ensure no liquid gets through the links.
