Ciba Introduces Low Concentration Thickener

December 9, 2005

Tinovis ADM from Ciba Specialty Chemicals, Inc. provides thickening efficiency at low use concentrations, produces stable sprayable emulsions at low use concentrations and highly viscous creams at levels of 0.5% active polymer and above. It is compatible with a broad range of anionic and nonionic ingredients and can be used in conjunction with some cationic co-ingredients. Tinovis ADM can be used in hydroalcoholic and glycolic systems at levels around 50% solvent. It thickens without heat, addition of electrolytes, neutralization, fatty waxes and alcohols and can be used at any stage of manufacturing to produce smooth creams of the required viscosity.
