Carbomer is a very viscous thickener that can effectively build viscosity in aqueous systems at lower concentration.Most carbomer can make 10,000–60,000 cP at only 0.5% w/w viscosity, so carbomer is often used as an aqueous thickener in various products. When preparing the carbomer solvent, it should be taken care to disperse the carbomer powder to avoid agglomeration to form granular fish-eyes, resulting in inability to dissolve.
In the preparation of carbomer gel, dispersion is a crucial step, which usually requires the powder to be slowly sprinkled into the dispersion medium and stirred rapidly. For large-scale gel preparation, a powder disperser can be used to assist. Most of the carbomers on the market today are easier to disperse than traditional ones, reducing the complexity of dissolution,and incorporated steric stabilizers that is ethoxylated nonionics with a block or comb configuration during precipitation polymerization surfactant.The finished carbomer is easily soaked when added to an aqueous medium, but hydrates slowly, allowing for a smooth, uniform dispersion of the carbomer.
Because it dissolves slowly by hydration, the powder is usually added to the aqueous medium at first,stand overnight for fully water absorbing.When the gel is prepared by stirring and mixing the next day, it will be easier to achieve good effect.
