Water Filtration – C.I.Agent® Agent-Q

C.I.Agent® Agent-Q is a non-woven composite fabric structure embedded with C.I.Agent Polymers in a quilted diamond pattern to encapsulate and solidify hydrocarbons on contact without absorbing water. The company’s flagship product, C.I.Agent®, is a proprietary blend of USDA food-grade polymers that are non-toxic, non-corrosive, non-carcinogenic, and non-hazardous. C.I.Agent is listed in the EPA National Contingency Plan Product Schedule* for oil cleanup, can be used on land or in fresh and salt water, and is very effective in extreme temperatures.

The versatile, lightweight fabric allows C.I.Agent to be more effective in the distribution process while allowing less C.I.Agent
product to be used to accomplish the same clean up. Water flows freely through the material without putting the water under


  • Manufacturing of water filtration products that require hydrocarbon removal
  • Manufacturing of air filters
  • Emergency spill response to increase the efficiency of booms, pillows, and blankets
  • Stormwater drainage systems
  • Secondary containment products for utility industries
  • Drip pads


  • Agent-Q averages 350 grams of C.I.Agent per square meter
  • One layer of Agent-Q flows 400 gallons/minute/square meter
  • Agent-Q has an average grab strength of a nominal 60 lbs. (ASTM D5034 testing)
  • Agent-Q has a burst strength of a nominal 70 psi (ASTM D3786 testing)
  • C.I.Agent is effective in temperatures ranging from -30°F to +130°F


  • High hydrocarbon binding and filtration capability
  • Creates no water flow restriction therefore allowing high water flow rates
  • Not dependent on water pressure
  • Multiple layers can be used to provide the desired balance between water flow rate and hydrocarbon filtration efficiency.
  • Floats on water even when completely solidified
  • Solidifies all organic hydrocarbons
  • Environmentally friendly
