Lubrizol provides rheology modifiers and functional polymers that can be used to formulate car washes, protectants, polishes and degreasing products. 

Carbopol® polymer, Pemulen™ polymers and Novemer™ polymers provide suspension and stabilization of gels, pastes, washes and emulsions.  The rheology modifiers can suspend insoluble ingredients and will provide good vertical cling in the different product forms.

Noverite™ functional polymers are used to reduce water spotting in wash systems allowing for low rinse systems with fewer residues left on drying. 


• Polymers which provide stability and suspension of insoluble ingredients such as oils, waxes and beads
• Cleaning systems which leave less residue and water spotting
• Polymers which provide the desired flow and leveling in a wide range of product forms
• Shear thinning rheology which can be used in non-aerosol pump spray with good vertical cling that minimizes dripping of the products during application
