Super Absorbent Polymer (SAP) is a new type of functional polymer material, with good water absorption and water-holding capacity. It can absorb water up to several hundred times of its own weight, and turn into natural gel from within seconds.
Super Absorbent Polymer (SAP) is a new type of functional polymer material, with good water absorption and water-holding capacity. It can absorb water up to several hundred times of its own weight, and turn into natural gel from within seconds. Generally as medical materials, such as diapers, sanitary napkins, also used as a plugging material in industry.
1 Water absorption and water retention: Rainwater or watering water that has been evaporated, leaked and lost in the past can be absorbed and stored to form a “micro-reservoir”, which is released for plant use in drought.
2 Improved soil: Because the particles swell after water absorption and shrink after releasing water, the soil can form a porous structure, soft and breathable, which not only ensures the plant demand, but also increases the permeability of the clay and the water holding capacity of the sand.
3 Safety: PH value is neutral, there is no bad substance in the released water, harmless to the environment and plants, not lost with rainwater, natural degradation after many years, reduction to ammonium nitrogen, water and a small amount of potassium ions, effectively improving the soil.
4 Applicability: Both agricultural and forestry crops and green plants can be used, and the effect is immediate. It can be planted and planted in anti-season and planted green at any time.

Super absorbent polymer used in agriculture and horticulture is also called water retaining agent and soil conditioner.
The main methods used are seed dressing, spraying, hole application, or water into a paste to soak plant roots. At the same time, it is also possible to apply fertilizer after coating the fertilizer with super absorbent polymer and fully exert the utilization rate of the fertilizer to prevent waste and pollution.
A. urban garden and green space (lawn, flower bed, football field, golf course, etc.) :
Using water retaining agent in the northern area can make the lawn turn green 10 days in advance and the green period extend about 20 days.
B. Forest planting
It can be used for the cultivation of trees and shrubs. The water-retaining agent can effectively reduce the transplant mortality, help the root development, promote plant growth, and increase the survival rate by 20%. The effect is more pronounced on afforestation in arid areas.
