Oil Absorbing Polymer is an amazing polymer that’s part of a family of polymers used to help the environment, but this one is really special. The Oil Absorbing Polymer has the ability to bond with oil molecules, effectively pulling them out of other liquids, like water. Gather three different oils for your polymer to absorb and you’re on your way to a blue ribbon science fair project.
- Oil Absorbing Polymer (150 g)
Package includes enough polymer to perform the demonstration about a dozen times when using approximately 1 ounce of crude oil (not included in this kit).
How Does It Work?
Sprinkle a small amount of this polymer onto the layer of oil and in seconds the polymer bonds to the oil, forming a sponge-like material that can be easily removed from the jar of water. This polymer is specially formulated to bond quickly and safely to many types of liquid hydrocarbons including crude oil, diesel fuel and gasoline. The bonding is so complete that it literally encapsulates the liquid hydrocarbons in just seconds. Here’s an incredible solution to future oil spill disasters.
What Does It Teach?
Discover how this superabsorbent polymer works and how it is being used in its industrial form to mop up oil spills. Learn about solutions that have been developed to lessen the effect of environmental disasters on animal and human life.
