Sodium Polyacrylate is a sodium salt of polyacrylic acid. This cross-linked (network) polymer is produced on commercial scale by the free-radical polymerization of a mixture of acrylic acid and sodium acrylate, with a crosslinking agent (e.g., trimethylolpropane triacrylate). The Sodium Polyacrylate structure is actually that of polyacrylic acid, in which the carboxylic acid groups in repeating units are neutralized with sodium counter-ion. Sodium Polyacrylate is a white, granular, odorless solid at room temperatures, available commercially as a powder.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Sodium Polyacrylate production costs. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q2 2023).
