BASF Superabsorbent Polymers

BASF superabsorbent polymers, including the Medi Gel® 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.
