X-TEX B12 Environmental Textile: Test Data and Technical Details
X-TEX B12 is a very efficient, nonpolar, 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.
X-TEX B12 excels at taking hydrocarbons out of water. It remains cohesive while in liquids. Hydrocarbons adhere to X-TEX B12 and are not displaced by water. Oil adsorbed in X-TEX B12 can be reclaimed and both oil and textile can be recycled.
