Medi-Gel® Superabsorbent Polymers
Gel Packs, Medical Waste Remediation
Based on a lightly cross-linked, partially neutralized polyacrylate, these superabsorbent polymers were developed for use in the medical sector. In ionic solutions, they can absorb up to 30 times their own weight in fluid and the fluid is retained even when significant pressure is applied, making them unique in comparison to cotton, wool, sponges and tissues.
