Market Applications

This is the most common form of superabsorbent.  These products are characterized by their ability to absorb and retain vast quantities, on a weight-per-weight basis, of aqueous solutions.  Ranging in particle sizes from as small as talc powder to as large as rock salt, these products comprise the bulk of the technical niche markets from gel packs to medical waste.

  • Packaging
  • Wire and Cable
  • Filtration

Phase Changing Applications

These products are unique in that they have very specific temperatures at which they solidify or melt; or in other words, change phase. As such, they are capable of absorbing, storing, or releasing large amounts of heat energy. This functionality is especially valuable in cold chain shipping and in the production of energy-conserving building materials.

Cellulose Applications

This term is generally used to describe a vast category of products derived from natural sources, such as wood or cotton. These products are water-soluble and widely used as viscosity modifiers or thickeners and emulsifiers in many industries such as food, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals, to name a few.

Liquid Superabsorbents

Sometimes, the physical characteristics of a granular superabsorbent are not suitable in certain applications. In order to address this issue, Emerging Technologies has developed a liquid superabsorbent product. Highly versatile and highly adjustable, our liquid SAP can be tuned specifically to suit the substrate that needs to be coated, providing the best possible coverage, curing, and absorption.
