Sinclair HydroSMART Water Management
Rollover to zoom

Sinclair HydroSMART water management is a super absorbent cross linked polymer, derived from natural constituents which can absorb up to 500 times its own weight in water directly inside the matrix, without having any negative impact on AFP.

As an anionic material it can additionally hold onto soil cations, particularly nitrogen and potassium (soluble cations which can leave in leachate) so we can increase nutrient and water use efficiently directly.

It has a pH of of 7-7.5 and longevity in growing media of more than 12 months and will eventually fully degrade leaving no harmful chemicals.

Sinclair HydroSMART enhances nutrient management by:

Increased nutrient use efficiently due to improved water management

High CEC (Cation Exchange Capacity av200cmol/kg)

Reduced leaching of nutrients

Microbe support (increasing mineralisation process and soil stability)

Supporting soil nutrient processes; diffusion and mass flow

Improving crop health and performance
