The Dirty Gardener Agritak PAM Polyacrylamide Granules, 15 Pounds
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.
