Carbopol® SMART 3000 polymer is a highly efficient, nonionic rheology modifier. This polymer is activated by the formulation surfactants, requiring no neutralization step. The polymer liquid form and the surfactant activation mechanism makes this a very simple-to-process polymer with visual clarity and suspension capabilities. Works across a wide pH range in traditional and in very low pH, organic acid containing surfactant formulations.

Features & Benefits:
  • Compatible with anionic, cationic, amphoteric and nonionic surfactants.
  • Easy-to-use liquid form for lower processing costs
  • Effective across a broad pH range
  • Elegant rheology with smooth, honey-like flow
  • Helps to suspend and stabilize beads, microcapsules, and exfoliants for excellent product stability and visual appeal
  • Imparts effective thickening, desirable flow characteristics, and high clarity
  • Very clear surfactant formulations at pH 4 to 6 allowing for natural preservatives to be used
