Super Absorbent Polymer

30 Dec , 2015  


In 2016, Ideal Shield is excited to be offering a new base gel installation option called H2Old with our sign base products. It is cost efficient, customer-friendly, and environmentally-friendly.  H2Old base gel is a super absorbent polymer. It eliminates the need for heavy and messy sand bags to hold the sign bases in place.  One 16 ounce bag of H2Old can replace 400 pounds of sand by simply adding water to this powder substance that instantly turns it into the gel.
