These small, pure polymer water crystals absorb and hold water to make
cool ties, wraps, and pads, neck coolers, and crafts. They expand to hold up to 500 times their
dry size, swelling from the size of a freckle to almost that of an acorn.
As their moisture content is depleted from warmth and
water crystals return to near their original size and smaller. When wetted again, they
re-swell with water--cool
or hot. This expansion and contraction takes place for years.
And, unlike other types of hydrogels, Water Crystals
are a pure polyacrylamide co-polymer that absorbs and releases salts. These
are odorless and non toxic,
and they are less susceptible to mold and unpleasant bacteria than other
types of polymer crystals on the market.
