Carbomer 676

Description
Carbomer 676 
INCI Name: Carbomer
Carbomer 676 polymer is a highly crosslinked polyacrylic acid polymer. It has short flow characteristics and relatively high viscosity performance. It is recommended for use in Automatic dish care, hard surface cleaners, home care cleaning systems, gelled fuels and other common industrial systems. It has good viscosity stability in the presence of chlorine bleach and has good efficacy in high pH systems.

Features and Benefits   
 l Short flow property
 l Stabilization
 l Suspension &Thickening
 
Recommended Applications
 l Automatic dishwashing liquids
 l Laundry pre- spotters and treatments
 l Hard surface cleaners  
 l Toilet bowl cleaners
 l Mold and mildew cleaners
 l Oven cleaners
 l Gelled fuels
 
Formula Guidelines
 l Typical use 0.2 to 1.0 wt% for very cost - effective formulations
 l To disperse Carbomer676 completely, it should be slowly and carefully sifted to dispersion medium while the mix is stirred rapidly to avoid possible formation of lumps
 l  Higher shear rates helps disperse the polymer rapidly; however, extremely high shear rate mixer should be carefully employed to avoid viscosity loss   
 
 l For easier processing of a 2~5 wt% dispersion, 400 ppm of an inorganic acid can be added to the water prior to dispersion of the polymer
Under high shear agitation, dispersions of Carbomer 676 polymer can stabilize entrapped air.  Antifoam, at use levels of 0.02~0.05 wt%, can be added to the water prior to Carbomer 676 polymer in order to minimize or eliminate foaming
