How does it work: Norsorex®APX is a special polymer with high affinity for hydrocarbons and is insoluble in water. The polymer in powder form, floats on the surface of the sea- or fresh-water and reacts with oils or other hydrocarbons within a few minutes – becoming a gel.

Within the following 24 hours the gel becomes solid and can be burned or disposed of to local regulations.The environmentally friendly Norsorex®APX powder can bond a great variety of liquid hydrocarbons (fuels, lubricants, solvents) in two stages efficiently.


First, due to a fast absorption process further oil spreading is prevented.Second, the oil solidifies to a non-leaching inert, firm cohesive “rubber-like” mass within a few hours, which can be easily collected and burned, disposed of or used for e.g. rubber industry in a full green recycle process.

Product Advantages:
Environmentally friendly
• Non-toxic, non-mutagenic, non-corrosive, non-hazardous
• Harmless to aquatic fauna and soil, non-biodegradable
•100 % green recycle process if used as raw material for e.g. the rubber industry
