Sodium Polyacrylate Production Cost Analysis 2020
Sodium polyacrylate is a sodium salt that is made up of polyacrylic acid. This superabsorbent polymer comes with the ability to absorb about 100 to 1000 times its mass in water. Sodium polyacrylate is an anionic polyelectrolyte that contains negatively charged carboxylic groups in the main chain. In appearance, it is a white, granular, odourless solid that is not hazardous. The melting point of sodium polyacrylate is around 239° F.
Sodium polyacrylate is produced by mixing acrylic acid and sodium acrylate. The chemical is known for its broad applications in consumer products. Some of its applications include dyed sodium polyacrylate hydrogel beads, paper diapers, and some garments having maximum absorbency as the absorbent material. Sodium polyacrylate is often used as a thickening agent in commercial processes as well as to dissolve soaps. A thickener improves the viscosity of hydro-based systems, which boosts its stability, without modifying its other properties. Sodium polyacrylate is also added to potted plants in their soils to help them retain moisture. It behaves as a water reservoir, which soaks up excess water and discharges it when required.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Sodium Polyacrylate production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
