Tramfloc - Model 1004 - Super Absorbent Polymer
Trarnfloc 1004 is a water absorbing soil conditioner. Tramfloc 1004 is a cross-linked copolymer of acrylamide and potassium acrylate used to absorb and retain large quantities of water and nutrients. Tramfloc 1004 is supplied as a white granules with particle sizes of about 4.0 mm.
Tramfloc 1004 is applied in agricultures, horticulture, forestry, mining and other operations where moisture retention is required Tramfloc 1004 has an anionic character and is 100% active with a maximum moisture content of 10 per cent Tramfloc 1004 is insoluble in water and functions in the usable pH range of 5-9.
Maximum absorption in weisht of retained water per weight of Tramfloc' 1004 is as follows, a) deionized water 500: 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.....60: e) stability of swollen product in sandy soil, years.....3-4; 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
Tramfloc 1004 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.
