Designed to absorb and contain hydrocarbon spills including oil, fuel, solvents, petrol & diesel. These adsorbents repel water, meaning they are ideal for outdoor environments and when spills occur on waterways such as drains, ports, marinas, harbours, lakes and rivers. The hydrophobic (water repellent) absorbents will float even when fully saturated with oil. The ultra-absorbent filling on the sock makes them perfect for containing and absorbing oil and fuels on your site. The Sock has a knitted outer skin, allowing liquids to be quickly absorbed, while having the ability to expand.
