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.
