Title (EN) POLYACRYLATE SUPERABSORBENT POST-POLYMERIZATION NEUTRALIZED WITH SOLID, NON-HYDROXYL NEUTRALIZING AGENT
(FR) MATERIAU SUPERABSORBANT DE POLYACRYLATE NEUTRALISE APRES POLYMERISATION AVEC UN AGENT NEUTRALISANT SOLIDE, NON HYDROXY
Abstract:
(EN) A new and improved method of manufacturing an acrylic acid superabsorbent polymer, that is manufactured by any known technique, except that the acrylic acid monomer is polymerized to substantial completion before neutralization, and neutralization is accomplished by admixing a solid, e.g., powdered or granular, neutralizing agent into the acrylic acid polymer. Preferably, the neutralizing agent is a solid, non-hydroxyl neutralizing agent, such as sodium carbonate, potassium carbonate, ammonium carbonate or mixtures thereof. Cross linking may be accomplished during polymerization, simultaneously with neutralization, or cross linking may be carried out in a separate processing step subsequent to neutralization, or both.
(FR) Nouveau procédé amélioré pour produire un polymère superabsorbant d'acide acrylique. Ce polymère peut être fabriqué par une technique connue quelconque, à cela près que le monomère d'acide acrylique est polymérisé sensiblement jusqu'au bout avant la neutralisation, et que la neutralisation est réalisé par mélange d'un solide, p. ex. un agent neutralisant en poudre ou en granules, dans le polymère d'acide acrylique. L'agent neutralisant est de préférence un agent neutralisant solide non hydroxy tel que le carbonate de sodium, le carbonate de potassium, le carbonate d'ammonium ou des mélanges de ces derniers. La réticulation peut être réalisée pendant la polymérisation, simultanément à la neutralisation, ou par une opération de traitement distincte suivant la neutralisation, ou par ces deux techniques combinées.
