have searched the globe to find you the best erupting instant snow. Create a
blizzard with this exciting powder that erupts into snow with water. No
stirring. That's right, make artificial snow that looks and feels like the real
thing! You won’t be able to take your hands off the piles of fluffy, white
flurry. The secret is in the superabsorbent polymer powder that expands up to 40
times its size with water. As used in movies and indoor skate

of fluffy, dry snow. Safe and non-toxic.
does it work?
add ¼ cup of water to 1 level teaspoon of powder and watch it erupt in seconds.
This amazing superabsorbent polymer can absorb many times its weight in water
and grow up to 40 times its size. Wow! The cross-linked molecules have a high
sodium content attracting water into the polymer system through a process called
osmosis. Leave the snow to dry out and it is reusable. A great science fair
polymers and their use in real life applications, like in baby’s nappies and
agriculture to retain water in soil.
process of osmosis, in this case, the passive movement of water through a
membrane from low to high salt concentration. What happens when salt is
sprinkled on the snow?
when water evaporation occurs and the snow dries out, it is ready it erupt

from powder to artificial snow, but there is no new chemical made (so this is
not a chemical reaction). Ice melting is another example of a physical

powder that has true erupting WOW factor. To be sure ask if the snow needs to be
stirred. If so, it is not the erupting kind.
artificial snow doesn’t melt, it is long-lasting and is even reusable when
completely dried out.
refresh your snow if it looks a little tired and dry, simply squirt with a fine
mist of water and ‘fluff’. It can be used outdoors.
