UltraMer®CC carbomers are non-neutralised homopolymers of acrylic acid supplied powder form. They have a high thickening power in aqueous or alcoholic based formulations and allow the generation of crystal clear gels.
Rheology of the gels obtained is pseudoplastic and nonthixotropic.
Effect of temperature
Gels prepared with UltraMer®CC carbomers do not show significant changes in regards to viscosity and stability at high temperatures.
Suspending and Stabilizing
UltraMer®CC provide high yield values allowing them to have a good efficiency for stabilizing emulsions and suspending solid particles.
Transparent or opaque formulations for hair styling gels, antibacterial hand gels, shampoos, skin creams, sun creams and hair care creams.
