Cationic Polyacrylamide (Emulsions)

Clear, viscous, emulsified polymer.

Cationic Polyacrylamide Emulsions, are a high-molecular-weight, water-soluble polymer with positively charged cationic groups. Designed for water treatment, papermaking, and various industrial processes to enhance flocculation, sedimentation, and filtration. Their performance attributes, including effectiveness in specific applications, can be fine-tuned by adjusting the degree of polymerization and cationic charge density.

Energy Sector

Cationic Polyacrylamide Emulsions, used in the energy sector as drilling fluid additives, increases the fluid’s viscosity. This enhancement facilitates the suspension of cuttings and maintains borehole stability during drilling operations. Additionally, as a flocculant in produced water treatment, they improve the removal of suspended solids, reducing the environmental impact of discharged water. In pipeline transportation, cationic polyacrylamides serve as a friction reducer, lowering pumping pressure and enhancing flow efficiency. Their application in enhanced oil recovery processes further aids in boosting oil production efficiency.

Water Treatment

Cationic Polyacrylamide Emulsions (CPAMs) are widely utilized in water treatment as a flocculant for the removal of suspended solids and organic matter. Their high molecular weight and charge density render them highly effective in processes such as water clarification, sedimentation, and sludge dewatering. CPAMs also serve as a coagulant aid, boosting the efficiency of metal salts in purifying water by removing contaminants. Additionally, in the context of oilfield water treatment, CPAMs enhance the separation of oil and water, showcasing their versatility as a water treatment agent. This capability significantly improves the efficiency and effectiveness of diverse treatment processes.

Pulp & Paper

Cationic Polyacrylamide Emulsions (CPAMs) are extensively employed in the pulp and paper industry as a flocculant, retention aid, and drainage aid, significantly optimizing the papermaking process. By facilitating the aggregation of fine particles and fibers, CPAMs enhance water drainage and boost the retention of fibers and fillers, thereby improving the efficiency of the papermaking process. This emulsion not only augments the strength and quality of paper products but also minimize the consumption of raw materials and energy, alongside reducing waste. Their effectiveness is particularly notable in the production of high-quality printing and writing paper, tissue paper, and packaging paper. Furthermore, CPAMs biodegradable and eco-friendly nature underscores their sustainability, rendering them an ideal choice for the pulp and paper industry.
