Carbomer 934 / 974

CARBOMER range are synthetic high molecular weight crosslinked polymers of acrylic acid, which confirm to USP./INF. specifications as "CARBOMER"
CARBOMER range, are water soluble polymer use to :
Thicken To produce wide range of viscosities and flow properties.
Suspend Insoluble ingredients.
Stabilize & Emulsify Emulsions

Grade & Applications
Grades Solvent used in process
Carbomer 934P / 974P
(Benzene free)
Cyclohexane & ethyl acetate
Carbomer 934 / 974 - For thick formulations such as heavy gels, suspensions, emulsions for topical preparation.
Thickning efficiency High viscosities at low concentrations.
Uniform performance Reproducibility unattainable with natural gums.
Safety Years of successful use of carbomers.
Temperature stability Extended up to 750C heating or cooling
Unaffected by aging Excellent self life.
Microbial resistance Resists bacterial attack and does not support mold growth
Versatility Although primarily used in aqueous systems with neutralization. It can also be used in solvent systems, with or without neutralization.
Elegance Smooth and luxurious feeling.
