Carbopol® 691 polymer

​Carbopol® 691 polymer is a lightly crosslinked polyacrylic acid polymer powder polymerized in a toxicologically-preferred cosolvent system. This polymer provides suspension at low product viscosity and improves freeze-thaw and high temperature stability. This polymer performs well in challenging formulation environments at low and high pH. It is recommended for use in all purpose cleaners, surface cleaners, multi-purpose cleaners, drain openers, and fabric pretreatment systems.

Features and Benefits

  • Excellent freeze-thaw and high temperature stability at low concentrations in oil-in-water emulsions
  • Excellent stability in oxidizing systems such as those containing chlorine bleach or peroxides
  • Imparts instant thickening upon neutralization to form high clarity gels
  • Offers stability in high electrolyte systems
  • Provides shear-thinning rheology to enable easy pumping and dispensing of finished products via trigger sprayers
  • Provides yield value to allow for the suspension of a wide variety of insoluble materials or particles
  • Yield value enables finished products to have vertical cling which is important for products that are dispensed via a trigger spray or nozzle

Applications

  • Dish Care: Enzyme Gels
  • Surface Care: Kitchen and Oven Cleaners, Multipurpose, Scouring Creams
