SNF is the world’s leading manufacturer of water-soluble polymers and acrylamide monomer, which is the primary ingredient for polyacrylamide-based flocculants. SNF has major production sites in Europe, the USA, and Asia, with many smaller plants located throughout the world.
SNF is a leading manufacturer with an extensive product line that includes:
- Cationic monomer
- Acrylamide monomer
- Solution, powder, emulsion, and mannich grade polymers

In 1997 SNF started a subsidiary in Sweden in Svaneholm, located just south of Borås. The subsidiary was first called Nordfloc but changed its name in 2001 to SNF Nordic AB. The purpose of the subsidiary is to have a local warehouse with products close to the end customers.
SNF Nordic AB is now the leading seller of water-soluble polymers in the Nordics.
SNF aims to be a key player in the water treatment sector and all related applications. The many initiatives we have undertaken in recent years to promote Sustainable Development, particularly in the environmental, social, and economic fields (energy balance sheet, carbon balance sheet, sustainable development report, social balance sheet, etc.), are closely related to our business activities.
SNF is guided by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SNF Group has developed a range of over one thousand products, in keeping with its goal to promote responsible chemistry and improve the quality of life for the entire population of the world.
Products manufactured by SNF play a crucial role in protecting the environment, saving energy, and ensuring access to essential raw materials, and have gradually integrated the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact into its policies.
SNF is also aiming to achieve carbon neutrality (Scope 1 & 2) by 2050 and reduce carbon intensity by 30% and reduce water intensity by 20% by 2030.
