  • Absorbs petroleum-derived fluids only/Ideal for situations where you need to absorb floating oils but not water

  • Will not deteriorate or sink when fully saturated

  • Chemical-resistant/Absorbs a wide variety of petrochemicals and petroleum-based solvents without degrading or reacting


K-Sorb Hydrophobic® Fiber is a loose cellulose absorbent which is oleophilic (readily absorbs oil-based liquids) and hydrophobic (does not absorb water). It is used to absorb hydrocarbons, chemicals, oils, and greases on land and on open water. K-Sorb Hydrophobic Fiber is an excellent choice for solidifying chemical waste and stabilizing oily sludge prior to transportation and/or disposal. K-Sorb Hydrophobic effectively separates free oils from water, and can be used to remove contaminants from shores, lakes, rivers, ports, marinas, lagoons, and ponds. It passes US EPA Paint Filter Test Method 9095A after absorbing 13 times its weight in oils, making it much more cost efficient than other cellulose absorbents, sphagnum peat moss, and polypropylene. K-Sorb Hydrophobic’s high capillary wicking action instantly attracts hydrocarbons, locking them into its hollow fibers and allowing for quick cleanup before the spills spread. K-Sorb Hydrophobic passes the TCLP and prevents the leaching problems associated with clay, d.e., and polypropylene. Once saturated with hydrocarbons it has absorbed, K-Sorb Hydrophobic’s additional 21,625 btu/kg and low ash content make it an exceptional candidate for disposal as an alternative fuel source at cement kilns, fossil fuel plants, and traditional incinerators. K-Sorb Hydrophobic Fiber is available in bulk 13.6 kg compressed bags.


Disperse K-Sorb absorbent by hand or "blower" over the surface of the water inside a floating boom. Collect using a leaf rake or similar
