What is the Difference Between Acrylamide and Polyacrylamide?

Jul 28, 2023

Acrylamide is a colorless crystalline chemical, an unsaturated amide, which is widely used in industry. It is also the main chemical raw material for the production of polyacrylamide, and is widely used in water purification treatment, pulp processing, pipeline coating and other industries.


And polyacrylamide is a linear polymer, the English abbreviation is referred to as PAM. According to the production process and the ionic characteristics of the different, our common polyacrylamide has anionic, cationic, non-ionic and zwitterionic four types of polyacrylamide. Polyacrylamide is mainly used in oilfield, mining, water treatment (domestic sewage, industrial sewage), paper making, textile printing and dyeing, food and other industries.


What type of polyacrylamide is used in each industry, and it is necessary to determine which type of polyacrylamide has the best effect after a small test. Due to the different charges of sewage and sludge in each industry, the selected polyacrylamide model is also different. The more polyacrylamide models the company can provide the more selection of products, so the greater the advantage of selection will be.
