Chemical Description - Cross Linked Acrylate Polymer
Product Name - Carbopol® ETD 2020
Product Overview - Carbopol ETD2020 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 ETD2020 has properties similar to Carbopol 1342 and Carbopol 1382 polymers, it is specially designed to make dispersions in water less susceptible to lumping and easier to pump and handle due to its low dispersion viscosity before neutralisation. Aqeous dispersions of Carbopol ETD2020 are therefore easier to prepare at higher polymer solids. Suggested applications include clear gels, hydroalcoholic gels, surfactant systems (speciality shampoos, cleaning products etc) and high electrolyte systems (aloe gels, etc).
INCI - Acrylates/C10-C30 Acrylate Alkyl Crosspolymer
