POLYMER PRODUCTS FOR ALL WATER-RELATED APPLICATIONS

SNF is the world’s largest producer of polyacrylamide (PAM), a water-soluble polymer specifically designed to improve the quality and conservation of water.  PAM has a broad variety of industrial and commercial uses as a flocculant, which facilitates the separation of suspended solids from water; as a viscosity modifier, which alters the thickness of liquids; as a drag reducer, which decreases the pressure drop along a segment of pipe; as a superabsorbent, which retains water; and many others.  SNF’s PAM-based polymers improve the use and reuse of water in many markets such as:

  • Municipal and industrial water treatment (incoming raw water, drinking water, and wastewater)
  • Oil and gas exploration and extraction
  • Mining and mineral extraction
  • Pulp and paper manufacturing
  • Agriculture
  • Personal care and cosmetic formulations
  • Home Care, Industrial & Institutional
  • Textiles
  • Construction

In addition to PAM, SNF also produces specialty chemicals and equipment that complement the application of PAM or improve water utilization:

  • Coagulants (monomer DADMAC, polyDADMAC, Polyamine)
  • Dispersants (various homopolymers, copolymers, and terpolymers)
  • Mining Products (Xanthates, Dust Control, Defoamers, Modifiers)
  • Paper Products (Retention, Drainage, Strength Polymers, Wastewater)
  • Monomers (Acrylamide, ADAME/MADAME, AD/MA Quat, ATBS)
  • Equipment (polymer storage/makedown/dosage control, EOR injection, PowderFrac™)
