Agritak is our acrylamide copolymer (poly acrylamide) tackifier. It gives coverage, convenience and economy in one. Great for dust control, erosion control or use for other commercial absorbent needs. As a synthetic element it can persist longer in the environment than organic based tackifiers. Compare its price and coverage to the organic based tackifiers on the market. It is highly concentrated; 3 lbs. will cover one acre. It is available in a 15 Pound pourable Jug. Polyacrylamide is a synthetic water-soluble polymer made from monomers of acrylamide. PAM binds soil particles together. Once soil particles suspended in water are bound together by PAM, they settle out, so water has a harder time washing them out of the field. Water-soluble polymers like PAM have been known to benefit soil properties for a long time. Recently these polymers have gained renewed attention for their use in reducing irrigation-induced erosion, now that the cost of applying PAM has become economically feasible. Other uses of polymers like PAM include treatment of municipal water supplies, food packaging, adhesives, a boiler water additive, film former in the imprinting of soft-shell gelatin capsules, adjuvants in the manufacturing of paper and paperboard, and the list goes on and on.

  • Use this PAM tackifier to provide dust and erosion control
