Name: Carbomer990   Carbopol990

Carbomer 990 Carbopol 990is 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. Carbomer990 is a crosslinked acrylic polymer with ethyl acetate and cyclohexane as solvents. It is used as an efficient rheological modifier, which can provide high viscosity at low dosage and has excellent thickening and suspension properties. It is also widely used as a suspension agent for O / W emulsion and cream. Clear and transparent gel was formed by neutralizing the aqueous solution with alkali. It has a higher viscosity than the carbomer 980.

Formula Guidelines

Typical recommended dosage at 0.2~1.0 wt %.
To disperse Carbomer990 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.
