3M™ Oil Sorbents are an innovative range of highly absorbent, quality products. Being hydrophobic, (repels water) they are ideal for absorbing oil from areas where water may also be present – exterior locations for example. 3M Oil Sorbents will not disintegrate or sink, even when saturated with oil, and are very easy to dispose of.
