What is carbomer, Sodium Carbomer
  • 2019-12-27 16:01:19

We, Anhui Newman fine chemicals co., ltd, as a leading manufacturer of carbomer products, offering carbomer 940,980, 941, 981, 996, 934 etc. with brand name NM-Carbomer similar to Lubrizol Carbopol’s. What is carbomer? Carbomer is polyacrylic acid polymer. NM-Carbomer products are synthesized in solvents by precipitation polymerization method. Carbomer are thickening agents that help control the viscosity and flow of finished products. they also help distribute and suspend insoluble solids into liquid and prevent the oil and liquid parts of a solution from separating. they have the ability to absorb and retain water and can swell up to 1000 times their original volume when dispersed in water and is neutralized. Generally, this class of ingredients is used in gel-like formulations because it forms a colloidal, mucilage-like consistency when mixed in water. Usually, the name carbomer is sometimes associated with a number such as Carbomer 996, 940 ,941, and 934. that simply represent the specific molecular weight and compositions of the polymer.


What is Sodium Carbomer? Sodium carbomer is a pre-neutralized synthetic polymer whose polymerization method is different from carbomer. Sodium Carbomer is already neutralized, and in the sodium carbomer form, it is a dry powder with a pH of approximately 6.5. After mixing with water to create a simple gel matrix, the pH remains a 6-7. 5.. As it is sprinkled into a formulation, it readily thickens within a pH range of approximately 5.0 to 10.  And benefits are low dusting powder for superior handling, but less viscosity than carbomer products.
