Can Polyacrylamide be Used as Thickener?

    Can polyacrylamide be used as thickener? 

    Many friends who have just come into contact with polyacrylamide know only their application in water treatment, but do not know that PAM products can also be used as thickeners in industrial production. In fact, there are many products in our daily life that need to be added to the production process. 

    For example, mosquito incense used in many places in summer, PAM as binder in preparation, thickening agent in waterborne paint and so on. Anionic polyacrylamide is usually used, and the main indicator of the series is molecular weight, ranging from 12 million to 18 million. In theory, the higher the molecular weight of the product, the more viscosity of aqueous solution can be obtained, while the average molecular weight of the product can be purchased in the market not more than 20 million, and it is very good to buy fake products, so we should pay special attention to the purchase. 

    As thickening agent, it can be used as thickening agent in detergent, car washing liquid and laundry liquid. It can also be used in building glue and various water-soluble thickening fields. In use, polyacrylamide can be diluted into aqueous solution according to the ratio of 0.1% to 0.5%, and a liquid with a certain viscosity and basic transparency can be obtained. The viscosity can be judged by the drawing length, but it cannot be added too much at one time when it is dissolved.


    Otherwise, there will be agglomeration phenomenon, general stirring about 50 minutes can be added to use. If the purchase is high-viscosity products, the proportion can be properly low.
