Mention about the water-absorbing material, you may think of many absorbing materials such as cotton, napkins, sponge, anhydrous calcium chloride, soda lime, allochroic silica gel, or activated carbon.
But these materials can absorb only several or dozens of times their weight. And most of them will release the water under pressure. Is there a water-absorbing material that can absorb huge water ( liquid ) though under pressure?
Sodium Polyacrylate can absorb hundreds of times its weight. After absorption, it will turn to water gel and this gel can lock water strongly under pressure.
Sodium polyacrylate can absorb about 300-800 times its weight. This is the most difference between SOCO Polymer and other traditional absorption materials.
It only takes several seconds to absorb all the water. Actually, the absorbent rate is a very important item for absorption material.
As we mentioned earlier, it has strong liquid-locking lability -- that why it's more and more popular used in diapers as an absorbing material.
This material is totally non-toxic and harmless. Actually, this new function material is already used in artificial vitreous and artificial skin.
Sodium polyacrylate is environmentally friendly and can be decomposed into the water, carbon dioxide, and ammonia.
