Texipol® IN 51 is an anionic inverse emulsion thickener that can be added at any point during formulation without requiring any heat or pH activation. The product comes pre-neutralized and, in certain applications, can reduce the amount of surfactant used. It is useful in car care products, degreasers, and paint strippers. Texipol® IN 51 has good electrolyte resistance and is effective in a wide pH range (5.0-13). It can thicken both acidic and alkali systems. The final product is opaque.
