Sodium Polyacrylate has several aliases such as Super Absorbent Polymer (SAP for short) or Waterlock is capable of absorbing between 200-500 times its own weight of water or body fluids. Water absorbing polymers which are classified as hydrogels when mixed, absorb aqueous solutions through hydrogen bonding with water molecules.

The SAP is hygiene grade, non-toxic, non-pollutant and harmless. It is easily dissolved using Sodium Chloride (Salt). Used in nearly every industry, the applications are endless. This particular Super Absorbent product creates a slush rather than a smooth gel. Please see our other products for a smooth gel.

Agricultural – The SAP holds onto the water for a long time which makes this perfect for potted plants or flowers in a vase to retain moisture, acting as a water reservoir Florists regularly use SAP to keep flowers fresh.

Industrial – The SAP is used as a thickening agent in industrial processes and to dissolve soaps. The thickener increases the viscosity of hydro-based systems, increasing stability and providing body without modifying other properties. Sodium Polyacrylate acts as a sequestering agent in many detergents. It also can act as a dispersing agent, promoting miscibility and facilitating even dispersion.

Building – Concrete protection and anti-foggy agent.

Medical – Sodium Polyacrylate is used in surgical sponges that wipe away harmful spills.

Hygiene Products – Sodium Polyacrylate is used in diapers and various feminine products due to the excellent absorption.
