PAM (Polyacrylamide)

Polyacrylamides are high molecular weight water soluble polymers formed from acrylamide or its derivatives. It is a non-ionic and bio-compatible polymer that meets a broad range of applications. Poly Acrylamide increases the viscosity of water, encouraging the flocculation of particles present in water. This polymer can absorb and retain extemely large amounts of water because the amide groups form strong hydrogen bonds with water molecules. Polyacrylamide and its sodium salt are anionic polymers which are more effective as flocculant and water absorber.

Handling Measures
and Precautions

Proper human safety products such as splash goggles, lab coat, dust respirator, NIOSH approved gloves and boots should be worn while handling and applying chemicals. Splashes on the skin should be washed off with water immediately. In case of splashing into the eyes, flush them with fresh water and obtain medical attention. Should not be injected.

Storage

Should be stored in original vented containers, away from heat, direct sunlight and combustibles. Store in a cool and dry place. Please refer label and SDS for details.
