Instruction for use


SORB XT –  natural fiber – instructions for use

1. Spread out SORB XT evenly over the leaked substance.
- Use mechanical tools like a broom, a shovel, Peko XT or a dredge
- For mechanical use we recommend to spread out SORB XT as near to the ground as possible

2. Work into the material without big effort.
- A dark discolouration shows the saturation of SORB XT*

3. Skim off or sweep up the substance from the surface
- Normally only one operation is necessary to obtain the necessary grip of 96%

4. Dispose the contaminated material with the respective valid laws and local regulations.
- You might consider that the substance probably can be thermally recycled.

*Case example:

0,66 liter is absorbed by one liter of SORBXT
250 liters of oil =  7-8 bags ( = appr. 55kg/120 lb)



The Hygiene Institute of Ruhr District confirms in its occupational medicine assessment and environmentally technical inspection:

  • Non-toxic for human beings, animals and environment
  • Purely organic, 100% biological
  • No negative influences to the environment
