AdBlue, also known as diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), is an aqueous urea solution that is widely used in modern diesel engine trucks to help reduce their nitrogen oxide emissions.
An AdBlue spill kit allows you to respond to and control spillages of AdBlue quickly. They are suitable for use in outdoor storage areas and are essential to have on-site in the event of an accident.
Spillages of AdBlue can be catastrophic for the environment as urea solutions are very harmful and polluting to both surface and groundwater, especially if they enter open drains.
These spillages can also pose a large risk in the work area and affect personal safety. This is because if AdBlue is spilt and not cleaned up immediately, it will crystallise upon drying, creating both a trip and slip hazard.
That is why it is so important to have the correct AdBlue spill kit for your environment on hand at all times: to quickly and efficiently deal with accidents and minimise harmful consequences.
Here at First Mats, we stock a variety of AdBlue spill kits to ensure you can find the perfect kit for your needs.

If you’ve ever had to clean up spilt engine oil in the garage at home, you’ll know that using ordinary rags or cloths can be a dirty, slow job. That may be OK in a domestic setting, but you’ll need a quicker and safer approach in the workplace. An oil slip is extremely slippery, and a small patch on the floor could cause a nasty fall or trip. Then there’s the risk of fire and environmental hazards, not to mention the disruption to work if there’s no ready way to deal with the spill. It may not be an accident on the scale of an enormous marine...
