001x8 is a GEL Type Strong Acid Cation Exchange Resin having 8% cross linked polystyrene matrix with sulphonic acid as a functional group. The resin has good operational capacity under various raw water quality. It also provides better physical stability. The resin is supplied with standard beads size distribution to give optimum operating capacity with minimum leakages of ions and also minimum pressure drop across the resin bed. The resin is available in both Na+ and H+ form.
001x8 is also available with varied particle size to match specific requirement, under different grades, the details are available with our technical service department.

APPLICATIONS: 001x8 (Na+) is generally used for softening application. The resin has excellent physical strength and is highly resistant to osmotic shocks. 001x8 (H+) is generally used for demineralization application, and it gives very low level of Sodium leakages. For demineralization application 001x8 is recommended to get high purity water depending on the raw water quality. Its performance is better and the criterion is higher than 001x7 series.
CAUTION: Strong oxidizing agents like nitric acid can cause explosive type reaction, when mixed with Ion Exchange resins. Knowledgeable sources should be consulted in the handling of this material.
NOTE: Ion Exchange Resins are sold on a volume basis, but are packed and shipped by weight. The shipping weight for each resin is fixed & does not take into consideration the variations in density and moisture content allowed within the product specifications. Therefore although the weight of the material is constant, there may be slight variations in volume, reflecting batch to batch variation of density and moisture content.
STORAGE CONDITIONS: The resin supplied in drums or bags should be stored in cool shed (warehouse) away from direct sunlight & should be periodically damped down with clean water.
