Chemical Description - Polyacrylic Acid
Product Name - Carbopol® EZ3
Product Overview - Carbopol EZ3 is a cross-linked polymer which is self wetting and requires no agitation. It gives short flow characteristics to a formulation along with a relatively high viscosity. It can be used to stabilise oil-in-water emulsions, gives a sheer thinning effect to formulations so that they can be applied via a trigger spray, and allows the suspension of insoluble matter due to its high yield value. It is highly tolerant of electrolytes. Carbopol EZ3 is commonly used in car care products, all pourpse cleaners, gelled fuels, industrial hand cleaners, surfactant gels, and polishes.
