Novethix™ L-10 polymer

Novethix™ L-10 polymer is a highly efficient, hydrophobically-modified alkali-swellable emulsion polymer designed for structuring most cleansing formulations containing anionic, nonionic, and zwitterionic surfactants. It is particularly effective for thickening and rheology control of the most challenging surfactant systems.

Features and Benefits

  • Easy-to-use liquid for lower processing costs
