Water Gel™ Starter Set
Make Water Disappear Like a Magician
As seen on the Ellen DeGeneres show, Water Gel™ turns from a powder to a gel in mere seconds. Sodium polyacrylate absorbs 500 to 800 times its weight in water and is actually the secret ingredient used to absorb liquid in baby diapers. This kit includes an activity guide with lots of fun, hands-on polymer science tricks to play on your friends and is recommended for children ages 6 and older.
How Does It Work?
When you add water to this superabsorbent polymer, it instantly transforms from a liquid into a slushy solid. This simple science experiment is fast and easy to understand.
What Does Water Gel Teach Us?
Water Gel is the perfect way to demonstrate how polymers work. The gel is a superabsorbent polymer that can illustrate how farmers preserve their crops during droughts and how diapers absorb liquid.
Superabsorbent Polymer Powder
Water Gel soaks up 500 to 800 times its weight in water in just seconds using sodium polyacrylate – the secret ingredient used to absorb liquid in diapers.
