American Excelsior has an earth-friendly and practical solution for cleaning up the oil spill as it makes landfall.   Curlex® is our brand name for our excelsior fibers.  Curlex is thin, curled, and barbed biodegradable strands of natural wood.  These wood fibers form a unique interlocking matrix, which provides a series of beneficial properties that aid in removing and trapping petroleum-based products.
