Uni-Carbomer 996 / Carbomer

Short Description:

Uni-Carbomer 996 is a cross-linked polyacrylate polymer. It is used as a high-efficient rheology modifier, capable of providing high viscosity, excellent thickening and suspending performance with low-dosage. It is also widely used in O/W lotions and creams as a favorable suspending agent. Highly tolerated in alcohol system, it’s the most popular thickening agent for hand sanitizers.

Uni-Carbomer-996 is a crosslinked polyacylate polymer with strong moisturizing ability, acting as high-efficient & low-dosage thickener, stabilizer and suspending agent. It can enhance yield value and rheology of liquid substances, thus it is easy to get insoluble ingredients (granula, oil drop) suspended at low dosage. It is widely used in HI&I applications, personal care products and those formulations where oxidative stability and cost effectiveness are key requirements.

High-efficient thickening, suspending and stabilizing ability at low dosage, cost-effective
Excellent stability in oxidizing systems such as those containing chlorine bleach or peroxides.
Effective across a broad range of pH
Suspension and stabilization of insoluble materials and particulates.
Improved vertical cling which minimizes dripping and increases surface contact times.
Shear thinning rheology suitable for non aerosol sprayable or pumpable product formulations.

Transparent hydroalcoholic gel \ Lotion and cream \ Hair styling gel \ Shampoo \ Body wash \ Automatic dishwashing liquids \ General sanitizing applications \ Laundry pre-spotters and treatments \ Hard surface cleaners \ Toilet bowl cleaners \ Mold and mildew cleaners \ Oven cleaners \ Gelled fuels \ Alkaline battery

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
