Water Softeners use “Ion Exchange Resin Beads” that are little spheres that range from 0.3-1.2mm in size.These beads are made by combining strands of Polystyrene which are wrapped around in a crisscross fashion, along with Divinylbenzene (DVB) which acts like a glue that holds the resin together.
The number of “links” in the bead will determine its strength, and how long it lasts.Most modern water softeners use 8% crosslink resin. A few High Performance Water Softeners use 10% crosslink resin, which has more “links in the chain” to increase durability.
Our black softerner resin Lanlang ® TC012FG has high cross linkage at 10%. Its high cross linkage makes it has excellent resistance to attrition and oxidative degradation. TC012FG is in compliance with US FDA 21 CFR 173.25 and NSF/ANSI 61 qualified with WQA Gold Seal Certificate. It has excellent chemical, physical and thermal stability, and high exchange capacity. Its good ion exchange kinetics gives high efficiency for uses in both regenerable softeners and non-regenerable cartridges.
Resin life is determined by a combination of the factors: the % crosslink in the bead, iron damage, chlorine damage, and hydraulic shock.
