X-TEX Test Data and Technical Details
X-TEX is a very efficient, non-polar and lipophilic lightweight fiber matrix that adsorbs an average of >20 times its weight of hydrocarbons or vegetable oils in loose fiber form, and >10 times its weight in the textile-blanket form. The material is lightweight, resilient, durable and formable to various filter shapes. It remains cohesive while in liquids. Hydrocarbons adhere to X-TEX and are not displaced by water. X-TEX excels at taking hydrocarbons out of water. The following are descriptions of bench tests and actual field tests conducted with X-TEX.
