DeCAL 9801 – Water Retaining Polymer for General Industrial Applications

DeCAL 9801 is a synthetic powdered polymer designed to rapidly absorb water and other aqueous fluids from a range of substrates and situations.

DeCAL 9801 is a Super-Absorbent Polymer (SAP). It is capable of absorbing several hundred times its own weight of liquid. The uptake depends on the salt types and concentration levels in the substrate water.


  • Agricultural/Horticultural – Compost additive for water retention, aids transplanting to minimise shock and seed germination.
  • Controlled release of active additives – This could include insecticides, herbicides, fragrances etc.
  • Flood control – Alternative to sandbags and booms but dry stored and transported at a fraction of the weight and volume.
