Polyacrylamide Polymer (PAM)

Product Description:

The ionic properties of polyacrylamide make it an ideal coagulating and flocculating agent. Polyacrylamide is used for primary sewage treatment as a solid-liquid separator in municipal wastewater treatment.

Rising awareness of wastewater treatment and implementation of stringent regulations related to wastewater from industrial and municipal sources is anticipated to drive the polyacrylamide market in the near future.

Rapid growth in shale gas and wet shale gas production is another factor propelling the market. Polyacrylamide is used as a friction reducer/drag reducer to decrease frictional pressure losses.

General Description: 

The PAM is white powder or granular, soluble in cold or hot water. It disperses in water, absorb and bridge the suspended articles in solution with high efficient flocculation. Therefore, Polyacrylamide is widely used in waste water treatment, paper making, textile, oilfield, mining, metallurgy, civil engineering, etc. as high performance flocculants, thickener, encapsulant, shale stabilizer or thinner, sizing agent, dispersant, etc.


We have ranges of PAM applied to various applications. All Unionchem products specification meets the international standard. Classified by the nature of the product ionic charge, we have APAM, NPAM and CPAM:

Anionic Polyacrylamide           APAM

Non-ionic Polyacrylamide          NPAM

Cationic Polyacrylamide           CPAM
