Carbopol® ETD 2020 Polymer

INCI Name: Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer


Carbopol® ETD 2020 is specially designed for thickening surfactant systems. An "easy-to-disperse" cross-linked polyacrylic acid copolymer processed in a toxicologically preferred cosolvent system, it delivers excellent thickening efficiency and suspending capability, long viscous flow and sparkling clarity in gel systems.

Although Carbopol ETD 2020 has properties similar to Carbopol® 1342 and Carbopol® 1382 polymers, it is specifically designed to make dispersions in water less susceptible to lumping and easier to pump and handle due to its low dispersion viscosity before neutralization. Aqueous dispersions of Carbopol ETD 2020 are, therefore, easier to prepare at higher polymer solids. Suggested applications include clear gels, hydro-alcoholic gels, surfactant systems (specialty shampoos, cleaning products, etc.), and high electrolyte systems (aloe gels, etc.).
