Features & Benefits

Features
  • Easy to use: Alcogum SL-827 is a low viscosity liquid thickener easy to incorporate in the soap phase of anionic emulsions. It should be added before addition of alkali. Alcogum SL-827 may be post added into emulsion, but in that case should be diluted 1-3 times in water to ensure good distribution.
  • High emulsion temperature stability: It provides more stable viscosity than with other commercial thickeners over a period of time when emulsions are stored at temperatures above 55°C
  • Higher viscosity: The product provides higher viscosity, allowing specifications to be met at the lowest residue content and preventing settlement during storage
  • Improved emulsion quality: The use of Alcogum SL-827 in the soap solution generally, results in smaller emulsion particle size and allows a reduction in emulsifier dosage
