Tramfloc - Model 1002 - Super Absorbent Polymer
TramflocE 1002 is a water absorbing soil conditioner. Tramfloc2 1002 is a cross-linked copolymer of acrylamide and potassium acrylate used to absorb and retain large quantities of water and nutrients. TramflocE 1002 is supplied as a white granules with particle sizes of 2.0-3.0 mm.
TramflocE 1002 is applied in agricultures, horticulture, forestry, mining and other operations where moisture retention is required TramflocE 1002 has an anionic character and is 100% active with a maximum moisture content of 10 per cent TramflocE 1002 is insoluble in water and functions in tile usable pH range of 5-9.
Maximum absorption in weight of retained water per weight of Tramfloc' 1002 is as follows, a) deionized water.....380;
b) water with 1000 ppm NaCl.....190; c) in soil, measured under a pressure of 2 arm.....225; d) time to reach 60% of
maximum absorption, minutes.....10; e) stability of swollen product in sandy soil, years.....2-4; f) mesh size: %< 100
mesh: 10; % > 10 mesh:; g) approximate bulk density: 0.8.
Rates vary according to the conditions of the soils, crops, water supplies, and wether water is from rainfall or irrigation and the quantities and frequencies of watering. General guidelines are: 2-3 kg/mJ inmixedto substrates consisting of sand, peat and compost; 50-100 g/m2 in broadcasting;
Packaging, Handling and Storage
TramflocE 1002 is available in 25 kg multi wall bags packed 30 per pallet and in 750 kg SuperSaks™, 15 MT/20' container. Storage temperatures should be between 32-100° F. Unopened bags are hygroscopic and should be stored in a cool, dry place. Shelf life is 5 years.
Safety and Health
Dry polymer spills should be left dry and swept up at once. Spills of polymer are slippery. Precautions should be taken to prevent them from entering lakes or streams. Tramfloc^ Polymer Cleaner 348 can be used to remove residue from equipment and floors. Polymer can be disposed of according to local regulations or treated with an absorbent material, then collected for subsequent legal disposal. TramflocE 1002 has been shown to exhibit a low order of toxicity. Nevertheless, precaution should be taken to prevent inhalation, ingestion or contact with skin or eyes. Observing basic industrial hygiene precautions should prevent any health or safety hazards.
