ALKEN® SOLUTIONS N3100L is a white water-oil emulsion, nonionic polyacrylamide. Alken® Solutions N3100L draws pin floc into a more stable floc for easier filtration. Performs best in a pH range of 7.0 - 9.0, although performance is possible within the range of 6 - 13. This product is especially suitable for applications in the paper mill, textile and refinery waste water treatment plants. This product has also proven effective as a flocculant for planktonic algae in certain lakes and ponds.

If there is enough interest in using this product for drinking water applications, we will apply for certification from NSF, for use at a mazimum concentration of 50 mg/l.

  • Effective in municipal and industrial clarification and coagulation processes.
  • Highly concentrated. Small doses save on freight bills.
  • More environmentally friendly than aluminum salts.
  • Aids solids reduction in centrifugation process.
  • Aids in dewatering sludge.


Because of the diverse nature of the uses of ALKEN SOLUTIONS N3100L, the required dosage may be as low as 0.1 ppm and as high as 200 ppm. It is necessary, therefore, to determine the appropriate dosage level by means of a laboratory "jar test".


ALKEN® SOLUTIONS N3100L is generally packaged in 55-gallon steel or fiberglass drums (500 lbs, net) which conform to Performance Oriented Packaging Specifications. This product should not be used until a Material Safety Data Sheet has been reviewed by supervisory and operating personnel. Gloves, aprons, and safety glasses are recommended when working with this product. Store in a clean, dry area. Avoid contact with organic materials, concentrated acids, and highly alkaline materials. Keep containers closed when not in use and discard when empty. Harmonized Tariff Code: 3906.90.50 (Acrylic polymers - other).
