Carbomer 940

Carbomer 940

Short Description:

Carbomer 940 is a cross-linked polyacrylate polymer used in personal care gels and creams as a high-efficient rheology modifier. It is capable of providing high viscosity, excellent thickening and suspending performance with low-dosage. Its short flow (non-drip) properties are ideal for applications such as clear gels, hydroalcoholic gels, creams. When neutralized by alkali it forms sparkling clear water or hydroalcoholic gels and creams. Features and Benefits: Short flow properties High visc...

    Carbomer 940 is a cross-linked polyacrylate polymer used in personal care gels and creams as a high-efficient rheology modifier. It is capable of providing high viscosity, excellent thickening and suspending performance with low-dosage. Its short flow (non-drip) properties are ideal for applications such as clear gels, hydroalcoholic gels, creams. When neutralized by alkali it forms sparkling clear water or hydroalcoholic gels and creams.

    Features and Benefits:
    Short flow properties
    High viscosity
    High suspending, thickening and stabilizing ability
    High clarity

    Recommended Applications:
    Hair styling gels
    Hydroalcoholic gels
    Moisturizing gels
    Bath gels
    Hand, body and face lotions
    Creams

    Formula Guidelines:
    Typical recommended dosage at 0.2-1.0 wt %.
    To disperse Carbomer940 completely, it should be slowly and carefully sprinkled to dispersion medium while the mix is stirred rapidly to avoid formation of lumps; extremely high shear rate mixer should be carefully employed to avoid viscosity loss.
    The ideal viscosity can be achieved at pH ranges of 5.0~10.0 when neutralized; In a hydoalcoholic system, a correct neutralizer must be chosen carefully based on the amount of alcohol to be gelled.
    After neutralization, high-shear and lasting stirring should be avoided to keep stable thickening ability.

    Standard Packing:
    20kg cardboard box with PE lining

    Storage:
    Keep tightly closed in cool, dry and well-ventilated area

    Shelf Life:
    24 months
