• Crystal Soil

    Crystal Soil is a soil substitute made out of Sodium Polyacrylate

    Sodium polyacrylate is a polymer that soaks up 300 times its own weight in water. Its nickname is the Super Slurper. It is used in baby diapers to keep baby bottoms dry. It is also a more convenient way to provide water to animals during transporation. The water soaked polymer crystals won’t spill, and animals can eat them to get water. Another common use is a soil and water substitute, which is the focus of our product.

    sodium polyacrylate formula

    The formula you see is that of sodium acrylate. The brackets indicate that it repeats itself into a long chain. That’s when it becomes sodium polyacrylate.

    A variation of this polymer makes plexiglass and acrylic paint.
