Sunkin® Carbomer 981 is a cross-linked polyacrylate polymer with outstanding long-flow property in mucilage. It offers excellent clarity in gels and gives permanent emulsions and suspensions at low viscosity, even with ionic systems.
INCI Name: Carbomer
CAS No.: 9003-01-4
Features and Benefits
Outstanding long flow property
Highly efficient at moderate and low concentration
Topical lotions, creams and gels
Moderately ionic systems
Typical recommended dosage at 0.2~1.5%.
To disperse Sunkin® Carbomer 981 completely, it should be slowly and carefully sifted 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; To achieve maximum thickening, Sunkin® Carbomer 981 should be 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.
