Acusol™ 810 is a key product in Dow’s comprehensive range of home, fabric and institutional care rheology modifiers which are characterised by their unique ease of use, wide compatibility, cost effectiveness and favourable balance of rheological properties.
Acusol™ 810 is an Alkali Soluble acrylic polymer Emulsion (ASE) which can be directly incorporated into formulations without preparation of a separate thickener solution. Viscosity is developed simply by adjusting the pH on the alkaline side with any base. The product is supplied as a low viscosity emulsion and therefore is easy to handle. Acusol™ 810 contains carboxylic groups that immediately swell upon neutralisation.
Oven Cleaner Formulation
Acusol™ 810 gives the viscosity necessary for an oven cleaner, allowing sag resistance on the vertical surfaces of the oven to give the extended time to soften the encrustations for easy cleaning. It is also the ideal choice for an oven cleaner as it is best for stable, viscous formulations containing high levels of alkali. It is an effective thickener / stabiliser over a pH range from 6.5 to 13.5. While Xanthan Gum is commonly used in such an alkaline formulation, this is only available as a powder and needs to be solubilised into water first, usually at higher temperature and under constant agitation. As a liquid it is much easier to dose and incorporate than a powder grade.
