Synthetic polymers for water treatment


Achieve scale control, dispersion, solids removal, and clarification

Scale inhibitors: our AquaTreat®, Versa-TL®, and Versaflex® scale inhibitors control scale in the varying water conditions of cooling waters, boilers, geothermal and other applications where scale control is critical. We offer a full line of synthetic, biodegradable, and renewable polymers to fit your needs.

Tagged polymers: our LumaTreat® tagged polymers have a fluorescent monomer bonded directly on the polymer to provide accurate measurement of the available (free) polymer in the system. This remote monitoring allows water treaters to determine if the system is operating normally or not as well as reduce polymer dosage and travel costs.

Metal precipitants: our non-polymer Aquamet® metal precipitants quickly remove complex metals such as copper, nickel, zinc, chromium, lead, and mercury, and form insoluble precipitates. These dense, compact precipitates are easily dewatered, thereby minimizing hazardous solid waste disposal, lowering disposal costs, and improving environmental impact.

Desalination and reverse osmosis: our Versaflex® RO products provide outstanding performance for severe service and general purpose applications including the control of CaCO3, CaSO4, BaSO4, calcium phosphates, heavy metals, silica, and silicates.

Rheology modifiers: our Alcogum® synthetic rheology modifiers are designed for use as thickeners in numerous application areas and a wide range of pH values. Our portfolio includes direct gums, alkali swellable rheology modifiers, acid swellable rheology modifiers, and core shell rheology modifiers.
