Ultra-X-Tex is a patented hydrophilic (water attracting) and lipophilic (oil attracting) material made of Recycled synthetic fibres. The fibres are blended and processed to form a lightweight fibre mass with enormous surface area and interstitial spaces. These properties make Ultra-X-Tex an extremely high performing oil sorbent and filter material. Ultra-X-Tex is offered in bulk media form (for use in booms and socks) and slso in roll form (which can be used like a silt-fence or processed further by us fo our Oil Blanket and our Oil Boom Products

Ultra-X-Tex Product Range
This "silt fence" type application uses stakes and wire backing. The ability of Ultra X-Tex to allow water to easily flow through it while removing the oil makes it an excellent filter material and protective barrier for sensitive estuaries.
Available from in 1.8m lengths the Skirted Model also provides a 860mm skirt to capture sub-surface oil. This material can also be infused with microbes to provide continuous remediation within the Ultra X-Tex as well as allowing the microbes to disperse to the surrounding water, beaches and shoreline
