Application: Papermakers can adjust the balance between retention efficiency and formation uniformity by adding high-mass acrylamide copolymer
retention aids earlier or later to the process.
In contrast, cationic acrylamide copolymers
containing amide monomers such as APTAC and MAPTAC are reasonably stable up to a pH of 9-10.
However, these acrylamide copolymers
are less thermally stable and easy to hydrolyze at severe operating conditions especially in high temperature and caustic environment.
It is reported that in end-product compositions, the concentration of residual acrylamide monomer in such acrylamide copolymers
can rise during storage.
