Name: Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer
Carbomer2020 is a cross-linked polyacrylic acid copolymer. It has long viscous flow property, imparts excellent thickening and suspending capability especially in surfactant systems and forms sparkling clarity gels. NM-Carbomer2020 has the ability to wet quickly but hydrate slowly, uncoiling at a relatively lower rate. This feature makes it easy to disperse and pump and handle in process due to its low dispersion viscosity before neutralization. Carbomer 2020 is a hydrophobic modified, cross-linked acrylate copolymer, providing medium to high viscosity, smooth, long flow characteristics, and high thickening performance in a wide range of pH; the product is easy to disperse, but the hydration rate is slow, so the dispersion viscosity is low, and it is easy to be transported by pump; 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.
Features And Benefits
Easy to disperse
Suitable for surfactant system and high electrolyte rate system
Excellent performance of stabilizing and suspending insoluble ingredients
Clear gels & Hydro-alcoholic gels
Shampoos and cleaning products
High electrolyte system (Aloe gels, etc.)
Typical use 0.2 to 1.5 wt%.
Dispersions made with NM-Carbomer2020 may appear to be non-uniform, with visible aggregate particles which may settle into a separate phase when not mixed. In order to achieve a homogeneous dispersion without phase separation, it is recommended to prepare with dispersion with a minimum polymer concentration of 2% by weight.
In systems with high concentration of surfactants, neutralization is preferred to be carried out before addition of surfactants. Otherwise the high concentration of surfactants especially catatonics and secondary surfactants would prevent the uncoiling of the polymer, affecting the viscosity, yield value and clarity of the end product.
