High-efficient thickening, suspending and stabilizing ability at low dosage
Outstanding short flow (non-drip) property
Resist temperature effect to viscosity
CARBOMER 940 is a crosslinked polyacylate polymer with strong moisturizing ability, acting as
high-efficient &low-dosage thickener and suspending agent. It can be neutralized by alkali to
form clear gel. Once its carboxyl group is neutralized, molecule chain expands extremely and
viscidity comes up, due to mutually exclusion of negative charge. It can enhance yield value and
rheology of liquid substances, thus it is easy to get insoluble ingredients (granual, oil drop)
suspended at low dosage. It is widely used in O/W lotion and cream as favorable suspending
