UltraMer®CC carbomers are non-neutralised homopolymers of acrylic acid in powder form. They have a high thickening power in aqueous or alcohol based formulations and allow to formulate crystal clear gel.

Rheology

Rheology of the gels obtained is pseudoplastic and nonthixotropic.

Effect of temperature

Gels prepared with UltraMer®CC carbomers do not show significant changes as regards to viscosity and stability athigh temperatures.

Suspending and Stabilizing

UltraMer®CC are having a high yield value, allowing them to have a good efficiency for stabilizing emulsions and suspending solid particles.

Applications

Transparent or opaque formulations for  hair styling gels, antibacterial hand gels, shampoos, skin creams, sun creams and hair care creams.
