CustoPoly® AC-60 is a polymer in an “easy to use” liquid form developed specially for the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry.  It is typically used to add thickening to surfactant systems in hair and skin care products.   CustoPoly® AC-60 is an anionic acrylic copolymer supplied as a low viscosity o/w emulsion.  Its water dispersions, when neutralized, are characterized by medium viscosity, high yield value and clarity in a large range of pH (see Fig. 1 and 2), and show typical pseudoplastic behavior.  In water the polymer starts to swell at pH 6. In the presence of other components such as surfactants, the viscosity builds up at lower pH. With good compatibility with surfactants and good yield value, many types of insoluble ingredients are easily suspended and stabilized including beads and capsules, polyethylene, walnut shell, luffa, pumice, pearlizing and opacifying agents, pigments and zinc Pyrithione. When CustoPoly® AC-60 is added to water the dissolution is instantaneous and after neutralization with an appropriate base, a clear gel is formed. Turbulent agitation should be avoided to prevent trapping of air that would be difficult to remove from the finished product. Normal percentage of use is between 1 and 10 % depending on type of formulation and final desired viscosity.
