Description
Carbomer 980 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. 
 
Features and Benefits   
- Short flow properties 
- High viscosity 
- High suspending, thickening and stabilizing ability 
- High clarity 
 
Recommended Applications 
- Hair styling gels 
- Hydroalcoholic gels 
- Moisturizing gels 
- Bath gels 
- Hand, body and face lotions 
- Creams
 
Formula Guidelines
- Typical recommended dosage at 0.2~1.0 wt %. 
- To disperse 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.   
- 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.   
After neutralization, high-shear and lasting stirring should be avoided to keep stable thickening ability.
