Water soluble polymers are chemical compounds, which on account of their dissolving, dispersing and swelling properties, have number of applications in various end use industries. The wastewater treatment and oil and gas recovering industries holds major share in the usage of water soluble polymers in the United States. Moreover, different types of water soluble polymers are used in food industry, personal care products and pharmaceuticals, etc. However, expanding food & beverages sector, increasing water treatment activities in addition to boom in the shale gas recovery are expected to steer the United States water soluble polymers market. On the basis of types, US water soluble polymers market has been segmented into polyacrylamide (PAM), guar gum, gelatin, cellulose ether, and others (Including polyvinyl alcohols, polyacrylic acids and casein). In 2015, polyacrylamide held the largest share in the US water soluble polymers market because of its wide usage in wastewater treatment and oil & gas industries. Additionally, polyacrylamide is also used in paper and pulp industries. According to "US Water Soluble Polymers Market By Type, By Application, Competition Forecast & Opportunities, 2011-2025", the US water soluble polymers market is expected to cross US$11 billion by 2025, on the back of growing demands for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment, increased oil and gas recovery using drilling techniques, pharmaceuticals and pulp & paper industries from different regions across the United States. The boost in the need for water and wastewater treatment, shale gas development in North America region, increased use of nutraceutical products in the United States on account of rising health awareness, and booming food & beverages sector in different regions of the country are set to increase the demand for water soluble polymers and their end use products in the United States. Additionally, development in the region's pharmaceutical industries coupled with abundant crude oil reserves on account of shale gas development in North America, government initiatives for infrastructure development in the region and growing food & beverages industry are set to increase the demand for water soluble polymers in the United States. Over the coming years, wastewater treatment industry would continue to dominate the US water soluble polymers market on account of increasing use of coagulants and flocculants. US water soluble polymers market is controlled by these major players, namely-Ashland Inc., SNF Holding Co. and Kemira Chemicals, Inc. in the United States. Other major players in the US water soluble polymers market includes Kuraray America Inc., E.I. Du Pont De Nemours & Co. and BASF Corporation. "US Water Soluble Polymers Market By Type, By Application, Competition Forecast & Opportunities, 2011-2025" report elaborates following aspects related to water soluble polymers market.

Functionalized nanoporous polyethylene (PE) was prepared through controlled introduction of thermo-responsive poly[2-(2-methoxyethoxy)ethyl methacrylate] (PMe(OE)2MA), or poly{2-[2-(2-methoxyethoxy)ethoxy]ethyl methacrylate} (PMe(OE)3MA) onto the pore walls. The compatibility of polylactide (PLA) and PMe(OE)xMA (x = 2, 3) was investigated by blending the corresponding homopolymers. The blends showed only one glass transition when the molar masses of both components were relatively low, whereas two glass transitions were observed in case of higher molar mass samples. PMe(OE)xMA-b-PE-b-PMe(OE)xMA (x = 2, 3) block polymers were synthesized by a combination of ring-opening metathesis polymerization, atom transfer radical polymerization, and hydrogenation. Those block polymer blends formed a disordered bicontinuous structure consisting of a mixed PLA/PMe(OE)xMA domain and a semicrystalline PE domain. The PLA component was selectively removed from those blends by mild base treatment. The resulting nanoporous polyethylene showed an improved water uptake as a result of the hydrophilic PMe(OE)xMA on the pore walls. © 2012 American Chemical Society.

Kuraray Co., LTD manufactures styrenic block copolymers, under the trademarks of SEPTON® and HYBRAR®. These styrenic thermoplastic elastomers cover a wide range of applications including compounds, polymer modification, adhesiyes, flexible PVC substitutes and vibration damping. Kuraray has recently developed a new family of acrylic block copolymers. These completely acrylic thermoplastic elastomers (acrylic TPEs) exhibit good weatherability, good paintability, low hardness and high levels of transparency. Unlike SEPTON® and TPOs, they exhibit good adhesion to polar substrates without the need of an adhesion promoter. They are substantially lower in viscosity making them easy to process without the need of plasticizers.

I have been in the United States since 2010. For the first two years, I was a visiting scholar under Prof. Hillmyer at the University of Minnesota. I have worked for Kuraray America, Inc. as a technology scout since I came to Houston in 2012. While living in other cultures for four years is not enough to understand everything, the one thing I can say is that help from friends and colleagues is essential for surviving in a different culture. © 2015 The Society of Polymer Science, Japan.


The inclusion of ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) copolymer by coextrusion into geosynthetic liners would greatly reduce diffusive migration of volatile organic compounds (VOC's). The primary function of a geosynthetic liner system in a geoenvironmental application is containment of liquids and vapor that should not migrate into the surrounding environment. Existing monolithic geomembranes comprised of polypropylene, polyethylene and polyvinylchloride are excellent hydraulic and heavy metal barriers, but are not good barriers to volatile organic compounds that pose a threat to soil, water and air quality. In a composite with polyethylene or polypropylene, EVOH would dramatically improve the capability of geosynthetics to control the diffusion of gases, hydrocarbons and solvents in applications ranging from waste landfills, secondary containment, radon and vapor intrusion barriers and brown field remediation. A comparison of the properties and performance of model geosynthetics incorporating EVOH showed that EVOH improves VOC barrier properties by several orders of magnitude without substantially affecting key form and functionality of existing geomembranes. © 2011 ASCE.
