Now you see it – now you don't. From hazardous spills in the lab to a cleanup on aisle seven, synthetic sorbents from 3M help you deal with some of life's toughest messes – quickly and effectively. The proprietary microbundle technology in 3M sorbents employs millions of tiny voids to absorb liquid, effectively doubling the capacity of the material. Our sorbents come in many shapes and sizes to perfectly fit your application. Choose from three formats: petroleum ( for oil only), maintenance (for non-aggressive liquids) and chemical (for most aggressive liquids).
