Polymers

We offer a complete range of water soluble polymer PAM (polyacrylamide) based flocculants and coagulants including polyamines and polydadmacs designed to cover all types of water solids separation processes and specialty applications such as clarification, thickening, flotation, filtration, settling, etc. They are available in emulsion, dry and liquid forms; cationic, anionic and non-ionic charges; and in the broadest range of molecular weights and charge densities.
