Lubrizol provides Carbopol® polymers and Noverite™ functional polymers that can be used to formulate automatic dishwashing systems and manual dishwashing formulations.
Carbopol polymers provide suspension and stabilization of gels with high levels of electrolytes and builders. Carbopol polymers provide stable viscosity in high alkaline bleach containing systems which are used as sanitizing agents in automatic dish formulations. The shear-thinning rheology of Carbopol polymers also provide easy dispensing, and good dissolution while minimizing product dripping in dishwashers.
Noverite functional polymers are used as sodium tripolyphosphate (STPP) replacements in automatic dish care. They provide detergent builder functionality. Noverite polymers provide performance through chelation, inhibiting precipitation of silicates, carbonates, and phosphates along with crystal growth inhibition.
• Shear-thinning rheology modification that yields easy dispensing, and good dissolution with minimal product dripping
• Improves compatibility with stabilization and suspension of insoluble ingredients
• Viscosity stabilization at high alkaline pH and with bleach containing systems
• Noverite polymers can serve as phosphate replacements in Automatic dish gels and powder providing multifunctionality as a good builder replacement
