Carbomer 990

Carbomer 990

Short Description:

Carbomer 990 is a cross-linked polyacrylate polymer, polymerized in co-solvent system of ethyl acetate and cyclohexane. 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 H...

    High clarity

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

    Formula Guidelines
    Typical recommended dosage at 0.2-1.0 wt %.
    To disperse Carbomer 990 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.
