Carbomer 676, carbomer 940, carbomer 996 application in fuel gel
  • 2019-09-06 09:35:57

NM-Carbomer products are cross-linked polyacrylate polymer used in personal care products and industrial fields as a high-efficient rheology modifier. They are capable of providing high viscosity, excellent thickening and suspending performance with low-dosage. They are ideal for applications such as clear gels, hydroalcoholic gels, creams.


In addition, Carbomer 676, 940, and 996 being cost-efficient, are workable for fuel gel formulation. Here is procedure for making fuel gel:

1.Disperse NM-carbomer polymers by sprinkling on the surface of deionized water. Mix slowly at low speed.

2. Slowly add ethanol with gentle mixing. Allow as much air to escape as possible before proceeding.

3. Add the TEA with gentle sweeping motion to minimize air entrapment. Mix until uniform.
