Water softener resin is a polymer. Polymers consist of a resin and hardener. Mixing these two components in different amounts during the manufacturing process results in resins that have different "cross link" percentages. This is literally the number of molecular cross links in the structure of the resin bead. Resins with a higher cross link percentage are:
1. Physically harder
2. Have a higher ion-exchange capacity (i.e. can do more softening)
3. Are more resistant to being fouled by iron and manganese
4. Are more resistant to being broken down by chlorine
5. Are generally longer lived
Most softeners for sale use 8% cross linked resin. And 10% cross linked resin is a better resin for the reasons listed above, but there are cost differences between the two, so you can choose the most suitable water softener resin.
Lanlang manufacture both 8% and 10% cross linked ion exchange resin for water softener. And we have engaged in ion exchange resin for nearly 15 years. With the good quality products and professional service, we now have many stable customers all over the world.
