|Superabsorbents are crosslinked, potassium based polymers specifically formulated and fully registered for use in soil erosion control and agriculture. Similar to a chain-linked fence, the polymers builds on the strength of interwoven links. This bond offers high absorption under soil pressure, high gel strength, and lasts longer in soil than other competitive products. Our products also maintain their ability to retain water and nutrients when incorporated at a depth of 3-6 inches. The crystals feature elastic memory whereby once the plant drains the moisture from the gel, it returns to its crystal form. When it rains again, it swells back into its gel form. This rehydration cycle can continue up to five to seven years.
