AMBERLITE IRA 402 Cl is a premium grade strongly basic anion exchange resin of the type 1, with a clear gel structure. It is based on crosslinked polystyrene and has a very high bead integrity, good regeneration efficiency and excellent rinse performance. It is used in co-flow regeneration and conventional counterflow systems with downflow loading and upflow regeneration with air or water holddown. Combined with a strong acid cation exchanger, AMBERLITE IRA 402 Cl reduces both strong and weak acid concentrations to extremely low levels. Its main use is therefore water demineralisation. Other fields of application include the treatment of electroplating waste and the isolation of anionic metal complexes.
