This type of coagulant aid, in addition to neutralize the positive charges in water, causes the formation of flocs more quickly and increases the rate of sedimentation by bridging and connecting the already-formed flocks so that with the network formed during sedimentation they take other tiny particles which couldn't form flocks inside them and make them sediment along with themselves (Koohestanian et al, 2008; Mahtaba et al, 2009).
