Oil Only absorbents Ecostar are hydrophobic. They absorb oil and repel
water.* They are able to separate oil from water. Sheets, rolls, snakes,
drum toppers, booms, sweeps and pillows from our oil only range are fast
acting and highly absorbent, showing excellent tensile properties. They are
used on shorelines for stopping oil reaching land, in fuel dispensing areas
and other applications. Floating on water even when saturated, they are
particularly suitable for marine spill control. Used absorbents can be
properly incinerated to reduce disposal cost.
