Cationic Polyacrylamides

Clear, viscous, gel-like polymer solution.

Cationic polyacrylamide is a water-soluble polymer with a high molecular weight and positively charged cationic groups. It is used in water treatment, papermaking, and other industrial processes to enhance flocculation, sedimentation, and filtration. Its properties can be adjusted based on the degree of polymerization and cationic charge density.

Energy Sector

Cationic polyacrylamide is used in the energy sector as a drilling fluid additive to increase the viscosity of the fluid. This increases the ability of the fluid to suspend cuttings and maintain borehole stability during drilling operations. Cationic polyacrylamide also acts as a flocculant in the treatment of produced water, improving the removal of suspended solids and reducing the environmental impact of discharged water. Additionally, it is used as a friction reducer in pipeline transportation to reduce pumping pressure and enhance flow efficiency. Its use in enhanced oil recovery processes also helps to improve the efficiency of oil production.

Water Treatment

Cationic polyacrylamide (CPAM) is commonly used in water treatment as a flocculant to remove suspended solids, organic matter, and bacteria from wastewater. Its high molecular weight and charge density make it effective in water clarification, sedimentation, and sludge dewatering processes. CPAM can also be used as a coagulant aid to enhance the performance of metal salts in removing contaminants from water. In addition, CPAM is useful in oilfield water treatment, where it is used to enhance the separation of oil and water. Overall, CPAM is a versatile water treatment agent that can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of various treatment processes.

Pulp & Paper

Cationic polyacrylamide (CPAM) is widely used in the pulp and paper industry as a flocculant, retention aid, and drainage aid. It improves the efficiency of the papermaking process by promoting the aggregation of fine particles and fibers, enhancing the drainage of water, and improving the retention of fibers and fillers. CPAM can also improve the strength and quality of paper products, reduce the consumption of raw materials and energy, and reduce waste. It is especially useful for producing high-quality printing and writing paper, tissue paper, and packaging paper. In addition, CPAM is biodegradable and eco-friendly, making it a sustainable choice for the pulp and paper industry.
