PAM (Polyacrylamide) Flocculating Agent

PAM (Polyacrylamide) Flocculating Agent

H30 Anionic and the Floc Product Suite are proprietary blends of granular, non-toxic soil binding agents and recognized for best management practices (BMP) by the EPA. These flocculating products are used with active or passive BMPs. They’re exceptional on construction sites with slope or embankment washouts and where de-mucking sediment basins is required. With their negative charges, none of our PAM products change the water’s PH.

Flocculation occurs when an agent dissolves in water and binds with fine soil particles, causing the soil particles to settle out. As the particles settle out, the turbidity and TSS (total suspended solids) decrease.

S3 provides partner-level advice in choosing which soil binding agent products are best for their projects’ specific layout.
