Cansorb is an all organic hydrocarbon absorbent, manufactured from high quality large fibre Sphagnum Peat Moss. This manufacturing process produces a product which becomes both oleophilic, absorbing hydrocarbons and hydrophobic, repelling water. Due to its fiberous structure and our processing, Cansorb absorbs hydrocarbons quickly on contact by virtue of its wicking action and encapsulates oil on contact, this makes Cansorb idea for hydrocarbon clean up both on open water and land applications. Cansorb absorbs, on average, eight times its weight. This volume will vary based on the hydrocarbon being absorbed and the temperature.
