Highly efficient viscosity enhancer for various surfactant systems

Evonik introduces TEGO® Carbomer 841 SER, a novel cross- linked polyacrylic acid copolymer

Evonik introduces TEGO® Carbomer 841 SER, a novel cross- linked polyacrylic acid copolymer designed to control the rheology of surfactant systems, especially for very mild formulations based on sulfate- and/ or PEG-free surfactants. TEGO® Carbomer 841 SER (Acrylates/ C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer) provides synergistic thickening in combination with electrolytes NaCl. It can be used for various personal cleansing systems and it provides excellent clarity in shampoos or body washes. Even low level surfactant systems can be formulated with the new, innovative product. Additionally it is compatible with cationics and creates stable viscosities over a wide pH- range. The high density powder TEGO® Carbomer is easy to handle and cold processable.
