BASF Superabsorbent Polymers

BASF superabsorbent polymers, including the Luquasorb® and Artic Gel® brands of polyacrylates, are non-toxic granules capable of absorbing and retaining many times their weight in water. They have a unique surface cross-linking chemistry which prevents gel-blocking and allows liquid to flow freely to the particles for efficient absorption.

In addition to providing excellent moisture control, they thicken fluids and turn them into a solid gel, swell when in contact with liquid, and exchange ions during absorption.

BASF Superabsorbent Polymers absorb liquid by utilizing osmotic pressure making it ideal for use in a variety of applications, such as waste disposal, agriculture, hot and cool packs, and cables. They have proven to be one of the most innovative, effective, and safe superabsorbing polymers in the market today.
