How are gel balls manufactured?

Hi all,

Does anyone here know how the gel balls manufactured?
I know that they are made from polyacrylamide but how does the manufacturer create the the powder into little beads and also add the dye?

I have searched high and low on google and youtube and found absolutely nothing.
Would really be interested to see if anyone has see the process for themselves.

i imagine it would be an extrusion and similar methodology to how they do chicken pellets.

I think they are extruded and droped into a solution then dehydrated

Here is an interesting read .


That’s very interesting reading. So gel balls are 98% water, of course !
