C.I.Agent® Agent-X

C.I.Agent® Agent-X is a new generation of smart textiles using embedded oil containment solutions and technology

Agent-X is made of two layers of a geo-textile with C.I.Agent® Polymers embedded between the layers. This hybrid creates a filtration fabric that encapsulates hydrocarbons and forces them to unsaturated areas of the fabric. Agent-X is hydrophobic, which allows water to pass through it, and is oleophilic to solidify hydrocarbons upon contact. Laboratory tests have shown great efficiency in removing small suspended oil droplets found in mechanical emulsions making it a stellar performer for oil sheen removal and for final polishing of effluent waters. Agent-X can be used for both land and water oil containment and hydrocarbon filtration.


Agent-X Applications

  • Agent-X can be used as a component of a total secondary containment system
  • Agent-X is excellent for use under equipment, change out storage areas, and for under mobile transformers to catch drips and drops
  • Agent-X is used as the back outside wall of C.I.Agent Barrier Booms and our secondary containment system


Agent-X Specifications

  • Agent-X is embedded with 350-450 grams of C.I.Agent polymers or 12 ounces per square meter
  • The Agent-X material has a flow rate greater than 10 gallons per minute per square foot
  • Load capacity is 10 ounces per square foot of hydrocarbon / oil containment
  • Agent-X is able to remove 90% or greater of a 30,000 PPM hydrocarbon sheen contamination per 10 liters of water per square foot


Agent-X Benefits

  • Agent-X is a quick and cost effective solution for protecting hard surfaces and ground
  • Agent-X’s characteristics of being able to wick and load drips and drops gives it its long lasting capabilities
  • Agent-X is rated for 200 years of reliable secondary containment
  • Agent-X is extremely resistant to ultraviolet degradation (70%) and to biological and chemical environments normally found in soils
  • Agent-X is light-weight and easy to handle
  • Agent-X can be cut and trimmed in the field to secondary containment specifications
  • C.I.Agent Agent-X is available in 54” x 50’ rolls and by the square
