K-Sorb Hydrophobic

A densified version of K-Sorb Hydrophobic Fiber. It has the same characteristics as the fiber, but it is pourable in nature and more resistant to windy conditions. K-Sorb Hydrophobic Particulate can absorb 4 times its weight (over half a gallon per pound) and is used for controlling and remediating CERCLA liquid hazardous waste on land and on open water. It is a cost effective alternative to Absorbent W, polypropylene, and peat moss. In addition, K-Sorb Hydrophobic particulate is used as a filter media to remove oils and greases from contaminated water sources. It is available in 22 lb. bags (approximate 1.5 CF) of loose particulate.
