Share Article

New polymers for wastewater treatment from Plymouth Technology are helping E-Coating facilities lower costs and meet the most stringent discharge limits.

With water quality and environmental concerns making news daily, industries all over the United States have been taking notice. E-Coating operations were among the first to take action, and as a result were many of the first to see the benefits of Plymouth Technology’s specialty chemicals and full system service.

Superabsorbent polymers (SAP) are one of Plymouth Technology’s newest tools available to help E-Coat shops reduce environmental impact. Capable of absorbing five-hundred times their weight, superabsorbent polymers ensure compliance with federal, state, and local disposal standards. These environmental superstars offer a more cost-effective and safer approach than lime, fly ash, diatomaceous earth, or other traditional absorbents. SAPs have shown immense value in their ability to add little to no increase in waste volume with no mixing requirements.

Plymouth Technology has helped dozens of E-Coat shops use SAP’s to solidify paint, thicken sludge, improve filtration applications, and aid in spill control. SAPs can be a simple and effective part of these and other waste treatment solutions. In order to get the best results from a superabsorbent polymer, there are some things you should consider including local contaminates of concern and pH of the water to be treated. Plymouth Technology offers free, no obligation site survey’s including a treatability study to evaluate the ways that superabsorbent polymers may be used to improve your E-Coat operations.
