Home Care Innovations at Clariant

August 7, 2014

Hostagel CL and Hostagel LT join portfolio.

Clariant introduced new opportunities to enhance the look, feel and pour of home care products, with new viscosity boosters Hostagel CL for chlorine bleach gel formulations and Hostagel LT for hard-to-thicken detergent formulations added to its Hostagel range.

According to the company, Clariant’s Hostagel rheology modifiers offer customers an effective way of introducing the desired degree of viscosity under a broad range of conditions to enhance product delivery, appearance and performance.

New Hostagel CL is an almost colorless, clear liquid that meets the needs of more affordable chlorine gel formulations. Suitable for cold processes, it also offers great cost-to-benefit performance. It is one of the best options available that can thicken from 2-5% of sodium hypochlorite while keeping viscosity high and appearance clear at lower cost than formulations containing amineoxide. The product is being launched to customers in Europe, North-America and Asia.

Meanwhile, Hostagel LT was developed for increasing the viscosity of those systems where traditional thickeners are not enough. For example, for combinations of surfactants that do not respond to sodium chloride or other viscosifiers. It is easy and convenient to handle, does not require melting, and can be used in many different applications. Hostagel LT is available in Latin America, North-America and Asia.
