Description
Carbomer 981 is a cross-linked polyacrylate polymer. It performs the same as Carbomer 941, but it is polymerized in co-solvent system of ethyl acetate and cyclohexane. 
 
Features and Benefits   
- Outstanding long flow property
- Highly efficient at moderate and low concentration. 
- High clarity
 
Recommended Applications 
- Topical lotions, creams and gels
- Clear gels
- Moderately ionic systems
 
Formula Guidelines
- Typical recommended dosage at 0.2~1.5%. 
- To disperse Carbomer 981 completely, it should be slowly and carefully sifted 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; To achieve maximum thickening, Carbomer 981 should be 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.
