DID YOU KNOW?
In gels based on carbomer or other acrylic acid-based rheology modifiers, the degree of chain entanglement and cross-linking are directly related to the neutralizer. Our ULTRA PC™-grade amino alcohols provide formulators with flexibility to tailor specific properties in the final formulation that are determined by the ionic interactions between amino alcohol and the carbomer chain. AMP-ULTRA™ PC products provide more efficient, rapid neutralization and viscosity build, and are ideal for developing crystal-clear gels that resist yellowing and maintain viscosity — even under challenging conditions.
