Ultra X-Tex has a variety of uses as it pertains to stormwater and clean-up applications. It is made of a proprietary blend of fibers that are treated and naturally absorb oils and greases from water while allowing water to flow through the material. Ultra X-Tex will hold onto the oils and greases and will not release them back into the water.
Ultra-X-Tex material is also an exceptional tool for oil spill clean-up. The rolled fabric is different than polypropylene in that it allows water to instantly filter through the material and pulls off the oil selectively as the material is hydrophilic. Polypropylene repels the water and this can make it take longer for the oil to be readily absorbed in a surf environment where the oil is no longer a surface sheen, rather it is being broken up in the surf.
