Nonwoven Sorbents for Oil and Chemicals by Comparison 

It is necessary to distinguish between the various kinds of nonwoven fabrics - Just compare!

1. Versions and models

​​Three fabric colours facilitate the right decision for various applications:

​​​white sorbents

​brown sorbents

​grey sorbents

2. ​Construction of the sorbent material

​​For different applications always the right product.

​Surface Textures and Weight Qualities

3. ​Thickne​​​​​ss

SingleWeight for light-volume liquid spills; MediumWeight for medium-volume liquid spills; HeavyWeight for high-volume liquid spills.

4. ​Uptake capacit​​​​y

Unfortunately there are still different test methods and, consequently, it is difficult to compare data. Values vary between 12 times and 25 times of the sorbent dead weight. The uptake capacity of our products is indicated with a value of approx. 17 times of the sorbent dead weight. A high absorbing power is not to be equated with a high retention capacity.

5. ​Capacity to retain

​Capacity to retain the absorbed liquid: Staying on the job for a longer period with corresponding cost reduction.

6. ​Uniform absorbency

​Uniform absorbency on the whole surface area of the sorbent material means an optimal utilization of the sorbent capacity.

7. ​Tensile strength

​Tensile strength due to multilayer construction of the material: The sorbent only tears where intended – at the perforation.

​8. ​Perforation structure:

Perforation structure: (vertical and horizontal perforation). You only use the pad size you need.

Consequently, best absorption properties consist of several factors!
