Several craft experts and entrepreneurs have developed useful and imaginative applications for these polymer water crystals.

These small, pure polymer water crystals absorb and hold water to make cool ties, wraps, and pads, neck coolers, and crafts. They expand to hold up to 500 times their dry size, swelling from the size of a freckle to almost that of an acorn.

As their moisture content is depleted from warmth and transpiration, the water crystals return to near their original size and smaller. When wetted again, they re-swell with water--cool or hot. This expansion and contraction takes place for years.

And, unlike other types of hydrogels, Water Crystals™ are a pure polyacrylamide co-polymer that absorbs and releases salts. These water crystals are odorless and non toxic, and they are less susceptible to mold and unpleasant bacteria than other types of polymer crystals on the market.
