PolyClay lies at the heart of all of the wastewater treatment solutions provided by CTECH Europe Ltd.
PolyClay products are blended formulations based on natural minerals. They are powdered semi-granular formulations which are added directly into the wastewater. The components of the formulations dissolve and react in sequence. They work by pH adjustment, precipitation, ion exchange, coagulation and flocculation.
PolyClay offers many advantages over traditional treatment methods such as polymer based solutions.
Continued product development has led to many different blends tailored to treat different industrial wastewaters. CTECH is constantly identifying new ways to treat wastewaters that have proved difficult to treat by traditional methods.

Benefits of PolyClay Chemistry
Can eliminate the handling of strong liquid acids and alkalis.
Typically eliminates the need to pre-mix solutions prior to treatment.
Encapsulates the contaminants to prevent them leaching back out of the sludge at the landfill site. This reduces the hazardous classification of the sludge and hence substantially reduces disposal costs.
Significantly improves the dewatering of the sludge and prevents blinding of the filter press or filter media.
Typical filter press cakes will contain 50 – 60% solids. Usually more efficient in removing metals from wastewater.
Typically reduces COD and suspended solids levels more effectively than traditional methods.
Rapid reaction and settling time to enable fast processing of wastewater.
Typical Contaminants Removed By PolyClay Include:
Water based inks
Many other contaminants which contribute to non soluble COD levels are also removed.
