Our unique product design and state-of-the-art manufacturing process, along with the ideal climate of our Pacific Northwest location, result in — pound for pound — the most absorbent and consistent sorbent product on the world market today.
.: PRODUCT DESIGN
Poly sorbents rely mainly on how much exposed surface area there is within the weave. The finer the melt-blown fibers, the greater the amount of exposed surface area for adsorption. The United Sorbents manufacturing process produces the smallest fibers compared to those of other manufacturers. Even though this is a tougher process to maintain, it results in a smoother, tighter finish with typically greater tensile strength for increased toughness. The loft is adjusted to increase the air space within the woven fibers for more holding capacity, increased softness, and more cloth-like drape abilities.
.: MANUFACTURING PROCESS
Through innovation, stringent quality control, and advanced maintenance procedures to minimize process upsets and equipment breakdowns, we are able to provide the highest quality products while meeting the challenge of providing the most competitive prices to our dealers. The staff of professionals at United Sorbents are our greatest asset and ensure that we never ship anything but the best quality on a consistent basis.
.: PACIFIC NORTHWEST MANUFACTURING LOCATION
It’s no secret that the weather in the Seattle area has very little humidity year-round with moderate temperatures. It is that lack of humidity that allows us to control loft precisely every month of the year without expensive climate control. United Sorbents is an environmentally-friendly company and uses green energy due to the Pacific Northwest hydroelectric grid. We think it is important to reduce greenhouse gasses and carbon emissions as much as possible.
.: STRATEGIC DISTRIBUTION LOCATION
While we selected the Seattle area for its ideal manufacturing conditions, we also have strategically-located distribution centers in the Midwest and in the Gulf Coast region, ultimately resulting in faster and less-expensive fulfillment of orders.
