Pemulen™ 1622 polymer is a high molecular weight, crosslinked copolymer of acrylic acid and C10-C30 alkyl acrylate that is designed to form stable oil-in-water emulsions. It has relatively low viscosity compared to other Carbopol polymers.

  • Provides exceptional emulsion stability.
  • Offers effectiveness at lower usage levels than traditional surfactants, thereby minimizing the potential for irritation.
  • Provides shear thinning rheology to enable easy pumping and dispensing of finished products via trigger sprayers.
  • Simplifies emulsification of silicone and water.
  • Offers high efficiency at low usage levels, thereby enabling cost effective formulations to be developed.
  • Provides yield value to allow for the suspension of a wide variety of insoluble materials or particles. Yield value enables finished products to have vertical cling which is an important characteristic for products that are dispensed via a trigger spray or nozzle.
