Kids and adults will be amazed when they see the superabsorbent sodium polyacrylate soak up more than 500 times its weight in water and turn into gel! The greatest absorbency rate occurs with distilled water. When transitioning from distilled to tap water, the rate will vary and proportions used will change. This sodium polyacrylate powder, also referred to as the diaper powder, is used in baby’s super absorbent diapers and other types of absorbent under garments. Teachers will find sodium polyacrylate great for chemistry classroom demonstrations and science experiments. Sodium polyacrylate is non-toxic when used as directed. Sodium polyacrylate can also be used for such things as making ice packs, absorbing liquid spills and magic tricks. This chemical powder comes in many different grinds. This is not the grind that makes instant snow. Ages 8 and up with adult supervision.
