Dyna-Aqua Oil Sorb™ (DA Oil
Sorb™ ) was developed for the removal of crude oil from the Gulf
of Mexico or sea water by combining the two most powerful
mechanisms for capturing the greatest amount of oil from surface

Hobbs Bonded Fibers' specialized cotton.
By impregnating cotton with specialized alumina, DA
Oil Sorb™ is able to bind up to 3 gallons (+/- 0.2 gal) of oil for every
pound of alumina treated cotton as tested using ASTM methods, exceeding
any other method in the marketplace. Through the adsorbent properties of
alumina, volatile organic compounds such as fumes and toxins can be removed before they make
Works through the combination of absorption
(cotton) and adsorption (alumina). The cotton product is used as
