Procedure
Weigh deionized water into vessel large enough to provide adequate mixing while preparing batch. Turn mixer on high enough to create a vortex in the water. Place vessel on hot plate (or equivalent). Begin heating the water to 50-55°C. Slowly add the Fixate Plus Polymer to the mixing vessel. Continue to heat until water/Fixate Plus mixture reaches the 50-55°C point. While the water/Fixate Plus mixture is heating, combine ingredients of phase A in a separate vessel. Place vessel on hot plate (or equivalent) to enable the ingredients to liquefy (50-55°C). Once the ingredients in phase A have liquefied, slowly add phase A into the mixing vessel containing the ingredients from phase B. NOTE: The materials in each mixing vessel should be approximately the same temperature (50-55°C). Allow the product to mix for approximately five minutes while continuing to add heat. Turn off the heating source. As product cools, add ingredients from phase C. Product must be at or below 45°C prior to the addition of Paragon III. Allow product to mix for ~10 minutes. When product is at or near room temperature, adjust pH to 6.8-7.2 using AMP-95. Mix product thoroughly after pH adjustment.
