Lewatit® S 6268 is a food grade, gelular, monodisperse, strongly basic (type I) anion exchange resin based on a styrene-divinylbenzene copolymer. On account of its special gel matrix with an integrated high porosity and special features such as outstanding capacity, demineralization of waters with high organic load or decolorization of sugar (cane or beet) solutions are the preferred applications. Further, the higher thermal stability in comparison to acrylic resins and the outstanding physical and osmotic stability gives Lewatit® S 6268 an additional advantage. The optimized kinetics increase the operating capacity, in comparison with ion exchange resins of heterosdisperse bead size distribution.

Lewatit® S 6268 (in its hydroxide form) is especially suitable for the removal of acid and simultaneous decolorisation of solutions of organic substances, e. g. sugar, gelantine, glycerine, grape must, whey, fruit concentrates etc...

Lewatit® S 6268 (in its chloride form) is especially suitable for:

  • the decolorization of sugar syrup (beet or cane), glycerine, grape must, fruit juices
  • organic traps (scavengers) used for the treatment of waters containing high concentrations of organics
