Uni-Carbomer 2020 / Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer

Short Description:

Uni-Carbomer 2020 is a cross-linked polyacrylic acid copolymer processed in cosolvent system of ethyl acetate and cyclohexane. It has long viscous flow property, imparts excellent thickening and suspending capability especially in surfactant systems and forms sparkling clarity gels. Uni-Carbomer-2020 has the ability to wet quickly but hydrate slowly, uncoiling at a relatively lower rate. This feature makes it easy to disperse and provides easily made dispersions in water less susceptible to lumping and easier to pump and handle in process due to its low dispersion viscosity before neutralization.

Carbomer is an important thickener. It is a high polymer crosslinked by acrylic acid or acrylate and allyl ether. Its components include polyacrylic acid (homopolymer) and acrylic acid / C10-30 alkyl acrylate (copolymer). As a water-soluble rheological modifier, it has high thickening and suspension properties, and is widely used in coatings, textiles, pharmaceuticals, construction, detergents and cosmetics.

Uni-Carbomer 2020 is a hydrophobic modified, cross-linked acrylate copolymer that offers medium to high viscosity, smooth, long fluidity, and efficient thickening properties over a wide pH range.The product is easy to disperse but the hydration speed is slow, so the dispersion viscosity is low, easy to use pump delivery;It can also be used in systems containing moderate surfactants, providing electrolyte resistance and a unique feel to the formulation, making it suitable for many applications.

Performance and benefits
1. Easy to disperse and easy to use
2. It has the effect of high efficient thickening, suspension and stability
3. It has a certain salt resistance
4. Excellent electrolyte resistance
5. Excellent transparency

Application field:
Hair care and skin care gel
Shower gel.

1. The recommended usage is 0.2-1.5wt
2. When dispersing the polymer, you can see the formation of layered and flocculated particles before stirring.In order to obtain homogeneous dispersions, it is recommended to increase the concentration of dispersions ≥ 2.0wt %.
3. When used in high content surface active system, it is recommended to add surfactant first to avoid the surfactant affecting the extension of molecular chain of Kapo resin, thus affecting the viscosity, transmittance and yield value of the middle and the end.

Following operations are forbidden, otherwise result in loss of thickening ability:
– Lasting stir or high-shear stir after neutralization
– Lasting UV irradiation
– Combine with electrolytes
