Short Description:

Product Detail


Product Tags

Name: Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer
Carbomer 20 is a hydrophobically modified cross-linked acrylate copolymer, providing moderate-to high viscosity with smooth flow properties. It delivers excellent thickening efficiency at a broad pH range which makes it a good choice for wide applications. NM-Carbomer 20 self- wets and disperses quickly in minutes, which remarkably meets formulators’ ease-use need. It have higher electrolyte tolerance and handle a higher level of surfactant actives, being ideally suited for use in formulations containing higher levels of oils, botanical ingredients, or actives like Sodium PCA.Even at high concentration, Carbomer20 maintains excellent clarity. Carbomer 20 is a hydrophobic modified, crosslinked acrylate copolymer. In addition to the high-efficiency thickening and suspension functions of traditional kappa resin, the product can self wetting and disperse in a few minutes, provide medium to high viscosity, and have high thickening performance in a wide range of pH; at the same time, it can be used in systems containing moderate surfactants, which can provide electrolyte resistance and unique feeling for formulations, making it suitable for many applications. Therefore, as a water-soluble rheological modifier, the product can provide many important advantages for the product formula designer.
