AMBERLITE™ Ion Exchange Resins and Polymeric Adsorbents are available in a very wide range of chemical compositions and polymer structures and have been used for decades in a high-value applications including water treatment in industrial and power generation plants, drinking water, food processing, chemical processing, bioprocessing, and pharmaceutical formulations.
AMBERLITE™ PWA10 Ion Exchange Resin is a unique drinking water grade, macroporous resin designed for the removal of boron from drinking water. The resin can be regenerated using a two-step process consisting of a regeneration step to displace the boron followed by a conversion step. AMBERLITE PWA10 resin has been shown to be nearly universal in its high selectivity for boron. Salts, including bases, do not interfere significantly. The concentration of boric acid or the salt background in water also has little effect upon the selectivity. This high selectivity for boron and low risk of interference makes AMBERLITE PWA10 resin highly suitable for removal of boron from water derived from desalination.
