WISPROFLOC is the brand name of a series of natural anionic, non-ionic and cationic polymers used as flocculating agent in the purification of water. As a potato starch-based natural polymer, WISPROFLOC is biodegradable and increasingly being considered as the environmentally friendly alternative to synthetic polymers. WISPROFLOC products conform to European Standard EN 1406: Chemicals used for treatment of water intended for human consumption – modified starch. AVEBE’s WISPROFLOC promotes flocculation through adsorption onto, and charge compensation/neutralization of dispersed and colloidally dissolved particles. Its key areas of application are drinking water as well as process water. Especially in case, such as potable water purification, where stringent clarity requirements are impossible to meet through the sole use of coagulating agent (lime, aluminium, or iron salts) combined use with WISPROFLOC flocculating agents will significantly increase settlement rates overall process efficiency.

WISPROFLOC is a very versatile product offering a high degree of flexibility to industrial users.

The key features are: 

  • highly effective in drinking water clarification
  • improves filtration and extend filter runs
  • non-toxic
  • non-corrosive
  •  easily dissolved in cold water
  • effective over a wide pH range
