Grease Pad Specifications

The Grease Pad System comes in various sizes depending on the volume of your grease bin. The Grease Pad can be relocated by forklift without disassembly.

The standard thickness of the Grease Pad System’s steel core is 1/4”. The design of this system provides a retaining wall around the center bin platform. Surrounding the platform is a sand moat that captures incidental spills. This system is ideal to contain the unsightly mess that can be created around grease bins. Each pad also includes a no slip steel platform, 2 drain ports with ball valves to control releases and covered filter boxes.

Because the Grease Pad System is heavy-duty with a long life, sets up quickly, requires no excavation and is re-locatable, it is a fast cost-effective way to meet requirements for spill containment.

Key Grease Pad System Benefits Versus Alternatives:

  • Heavy Plate Steel construction
  • Thick Resin protective coating
  • Retaining Wall around Bin platform
  • Sand Moat surrounds Bin platform to capture grease drippings, etc.
  • No Slip Steel platform
  • Two 1½ inch Drains opposite corners
  • Includes two Filter Boxes with Lids
  • Two Ball Valves to control releases
  • Surface mounted, re-locatable


Purpose: The Grease Pad is a super duty, rigid, collector system designed to provide secondary containment and contain incidental spills of hazardous or corrosive liquids.

Scope: This product specification covers materials, construction and workmanship, physical properties, chemical resistance and methods of testing.

Material: The Grease Pad is a fiberglass-encapsulated steel structure. Durable fiberglass laminations are bonded to a nominal 1/4” thick steel plate. Fiberglass offers great physical strength, excellent corrosion resistance and flexibility. Fiberglass mat and industrial grade isophthalic or vinyl ester resin as manufactured by Ashland Chemical or equivalent are used. A gel coat surface resin of equal chemical resistance, with the additive antimony trioxide for flame retardance and U.V. protection is included. The flame spread rating is Class II. Tested by ASTM E-84.

Structure: The GREASE PAD allows for grease bins to be set inside and not only contain spills but also errant transfers of cooking oil or animal fat. In addition, fiberglass provides the utmost in non-porous, protection against attack by a wide variety of industrial chemicals and liquid hydrocarbons.
Fiberglass reinforced construction is formed by combining resin with controlled amounts of fiberglass mat and woven roving. Polystar ensures that a corrosion barrier of not less that 30 mils as specified by industry standard PS 15-69 is provided to ensure consistency of product quality. The technical properties of a reinforced fiberglass laminate are:

Property at 73.4°F (23°C)

1/8” to 1/4” Thickness

Ultimate minimum tensile strength (PSI)


Flexural minimum strength (PSI)


Flexural minimum modules of elasticity (tangent, in PSI)


Operating Temperature: The maximum operating temperature for fiberglass is 200F with excursions through 225F.

Quality Assurance: Each Grease Pad is manufactured and tested according to industry standards PS 15-69 and 41-GP-22, Canadian and SPI/MTI Quality Assurance Report for FRP Corrosion Resistant Equipment.

Warranty: Each Grease Pad is warranted against defects in workmanship and materials for a period of one (1) year from the date of purchase. Repair or replacement is at the discretion of the manufacturer. Customer or third party damage is excluded from warranty coverage.
