Opacifier For Personal Care
SYNTRAN 5903 is a Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer
SYNTRAN 5903 is a styrene/acrylic emulsion which is designed to modify the visual appearance of personal care products such as liquid shampoos, bath and shower products, and liquid hand soaps, from clear to opaque without affecting the other desired properties. SYNTRAN opacifiers improve brightness and whiteness, can be used at significantly lower levels, and have excellent formulation stability.
Typical Physical Properties
should always be added at the end of the manufacturing cycle just after final adjustment. The product can be pre-diluted with soft or de-ionized water at a range of 1 part opacifier to 3-4 parts water prior use. The addition of opacifier to the base product needs to be made very slowly under good agitation.
SYNTRAN 5903 is very stable in original containers and storage tanks at ambient temperature for at least 6 months. Open containers should be checked on a regular basis for, and protected against, bio-contamination, if necessary.
If SYNTRAN 5903 is stored in a diluted form, a preservative is required.
