Solvay RHODICARE D Surfactant
Categories: Fluid

Material Notes: Description: Rhodicare® D is an anionic bio-polymer with excellent stabilizing, thickening and suspending properties. It has high electrolyte stability over a wide range of pH and fast hydration rate. It exhibits Pseudo-plastic non-thixotropic behaviour, antisyneresis agent and reduces gel exudation


CAS: 11138 - 66 – 2

EINECS: 234 – 394-2

Recommended use level: 0.2 - 1%

Soluble in water

Compatible with Non-ionic, anionic and amphoteric surfactants.

Available in: Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America and North America

Applications: Sodium salt of an anionic high molecular weight hetero-polysaccharide produced by pure culture fermentation of Xanthomonas campestris, purified by recovery with isopropanol. Thickening and stabilizing hydrocolloid giving aqueous solutions of high viscosity and high yield value even at low concentrations, not affected by temperature. Pseudo-plastic non thixotropic behaviour. Effective suspending and stabilizing agent for multi-phasic systems : aqueous suspensions, emulsions and foams, easily sprayable, flowable, pumpable (creams and lotions, toothpastes…). Thickening agent for creams, suspensions, shampoos, gels ; synergistic effect with galactomannanes, glucomannanes. Anti-syneresis agent, reduces gel exudation.
