Carbomer 990

Carbomer 990

Carbomer 990/NM-Carbomer 990 is a cross-linked polyacrylate polymer, polymerized in co-solvent system of ethyl acetate and cyclohexane. It is capable of providing high viscosity, excellent thickening and suspending performance with low-dosage. Its short flow (non-drip) properties are ideal for applications such as clear gels, hydroalcoholic gels, creams. When neutralized by alkali it forms sparkling clear water or hydroalcoholic gels and creams.

Carbomer 990/NM -Carbomer 990 Effficient thickening carbomer

INCI Name: Carbomer


Features and Benefits  

 l Short flow properties

 l High viscosity

 l High suspending, thickening and stabilizing ability

 l High clarity


Recommended Applications

 l Hair styling gels & Moisturizing gels

 l Bath gels

 l Hand, body and face lotions

 l Creams


Formula Guidelines

 l Typical recommended dosage at 0.2~1.0 wt %.

 l To disperse NM-Carbomer940 completely, it should be slowly and carefully sprinkled 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.

 l The ideal viscosity can be achieved at pH ranges of 5.0~10.0 when neutralized; In a hydoalcoholic system, a correct neutralizer must be chosen carefully based on the amount of alcohol to be gelled.

 l After neutralization, high-shear and lasting stirring should be avoided to keep stable thickening ability.
