Sodium Polyacrylate

Sodium Polyacrylate serves as a water absorbing polymer that manifests the capacity of absorbing up to 200 - 300 times of DM water of its own weight. The ability of sodium polyacrylate to absorb water is derived by the ionic concentration of the aqueous solution.

Sodium Polyacrylate carries positive anionic charge, which attracts water-based molecules to combine with it, making a super absorbent polymer. Primary application of sodium polyacrylate is in baby diapers, and sanitary pads.
