ChemStream develops super absorbing powders with controlled water swelling potential, as well as UV-curable hydrogel formulations that provide super absorbing coatings with a controlled swelling potential after polymerization. The swelling potential of the powders and the coatings can be finetuned for a water take-up of 50 to 500 g water per g SAP, depending on the needs of the application involved. Generally these materials are used for their water-retaining capacity (ex. in diapers), for their water-blocking function (ex. in optical fibre cables), and for their controlled release capability (ex. self-healing in concrete).
To develop these superabsorbing materials ChemStream uses non-hazardous waterborne ingredients leading to highly durable products that do not harm the aquatic life.
ChemStream is an innovative chemical R&D company specialized in translating challenging material requirements into sustainable formulations with a focus on nanodispersions, functional coatings and inkjet inks (for 2D and 3D printing). ChemStream has its own lab facilities for chemical synthesis and formulation research from the design phase to prototype scale.Exhibitor
