Polyacrylic acid uses in daily life
Sodium polyacrylate (water-absorbent polymer) is a new type of functional polymer material widely developed and researched at home and abroad in recent years. It is a kind of strong hydrophilic polymer compound with a loose network structure and low cross-linking degree. Water absorption and water retention performance, non-toxic and odorless, widely used in medical and health, petrochemical and soil water retention.
Below is a table containing categories and lists of some products and applications that Polyacrylic acid uses in daily life:
Paper/disposable diaper (baby, child, and adult)
Horse urine odor absorbing
Drown-free water source for feeder insects
Waste liquid control
Wire and cable water blocking
hot/cold gel pack
Anti-fogging packing material
Above is not comprehensive and does not contain all of the possible or potential applications for using sodium polyacrylate.
All in all, using a water absorbent polymer is a good thing. They’re non toxic and safe, and they help to keep our environment clean and less landfill.
