Acumer Dispersant Polymer


A sodium salt of a polyacrylic acid selected for polymer weight, composition, structure and mode of surface adsorption. It ships as a clear, light amber solution. It is a high performance dispersant for minerals (calcium carbonate, kaolin, titanium dioxide, talc, aluminum hydroxide) that promotes low viscosities in 70% slurries and maintains low viscosity during storage at ambient or elevated temperatures.

9300 - General purpose for ceramic industry
9000, 9400 - For kaolin slurries
