CORKSORB Sustainable Absorbent
100% Natural, DESIGNED TO DEAL WITH ANY KIND OF HYDROCARBONS, OILS, SOLVENTS AND ORGANIC COMPOUNDS SPILLS.
The cork used in the CORKSORB products is selected and heat treated (NO ADDITIVES)
in order to have the best performance to sorb hydrocarbons, oils and organic compounds. In these conditions cork has a strong affinity with hydrocarbons and the sorbent effect is instantaneous. The cork cells suck the oil by capillarity and retain it.

Corksorb Booms: Super and fast absorption, high retention capacity (non-leaching), repels water and floats on water even after saturation. Strong mesh outer sleeve encases a poly sock skin filled with highly absorbent special cork. Filler won't shed and booms will not sink when saturated with oil. Sturdy hardware with polyester multifilament yarn rope to ensure durability and easy retrieval. Booms can be linked together. They clip together with carbon steel connector hardware.
Corksorb Spill Kits: Designed for preventing, containing and cleaning oils / hydrocarbons / chemicals with no water absorption; Easy to transport, handle and allocate; Customized Kits: We can build the custom kit you need because we build our spill cleanup kits in our own factory. You can request different numbers of cork granular absorbent bags, socks, pads or pillows then what is in our standard items. We can even put your company logo on it. We will be happy to fulfil your needs.
Marine applications: CorkSorb products are 100% natural, hydrophobic and super absorbent, which are ideal to be used in waters in off-shore operations. Prevent any spill from happening or contain it immediately with our very special and resistant Corksorb booms with various lengths, easy deployment and long floatation capacity (even after saturation).
Refining: CorkSorb special granules are super absorbent and also suppress vapors. Spills are now easier and safer to clean up helping preventing any natural disasters.
Off-Shore Oil Drilling: When drilling, crude can sometimes be spilled onto the surface. CorkSorb special granules are then sprayed on the spill to quickly absorb and contain the oil from spreading.
Beach / Rock Cleaning: Environmental friendly Corksorb special cork granules can be applied / sprayed on rocky shores and beaches of importance to wildlife (e.g. penguins and seals), to minimize contamination to fur and feathers as they come ashore.
