Advantage™ Plus polymer

VA/Butyl Maleate/Isobornyl Acrylate Copolymer

Advantage™ Plus polymer is a terpolymer of vinyl acetate, mono-n-butyl maleate and isobornyl acrylate.

In hair care, Advantage Plus polymer is positioned for hair spray applications where it delivers stiff, hard-holding performance. Styling effects are long-lasting even in a high humidity environment. Depending on the type of neutralizer, Advantage Plus polymer can be used to formulate aerosol hairsprays containing 50 percent or more hydrocarbons.

In sun care applications, incorporating Advantage Plus polymer into anhydrous spray formulations offers enhanced performance and feel. This self-adapting polymer helps boost formula SPF and improves water resistance, while providing a low-shine finish on the skin. Study results show that Advantage Plus polymer boosts initial SPF and improves water-resistant benefits for higher SPF retention. Because of its self-adapting character, which allows the polymer to reorient itself, Advantage Plus polymer provides water resistance.

Advantage™ defoamers

Advantage™ defoamers are highly efficient, hydrocarbon oil-based antifoaming agents designed for use in construction and building products as a foam control agent. Advantage defoamers are designed to be emulsifiable with persistency so they can be used over a broad number of applications. Advantage defoamers are especially effective for use in building applications such as cement, fillers, gypsum, leveling compounds and mortars.

Advantage defoamers are typicallly effective at dosage levels between 0.1-1.0 percent by weight on total formulation. A liquid product, Advantage defoamers can be easily dispersed. The addition of Advantage defoamers results in low foaming solutions or pastes with low entrained-air content.

Advantage™ foam control agents

Advantage™ AM-series foam control agents help manufacturers minimize entrained air and resultant foam during the manufacture and application of paints and coatings. Advantage AM-series foam control agents help manufacturers minimize entrained air and resultant foam during the manufacture and application of paints and coatings.

In addition, Advantage AV-series non-mineral oil based defoamers offer a “green” defoamer alternative. Advantage AV defoamers are designed to deliver comparable performance to conventional mineral oil-based workhorse products, while reducing the impact on our environment.

AeroWhip™ modified cellulose

AeroWhip™ modified cellulose, also known as hydroxypropylcellulose or HPC, is a unique hydrocolloid for food applications. It is extremely surface-active and its low surface and interfacial tensions in solution make it a premier whipping aid. This property, combined with its “protective colloid” action, gives it outstanding dual functionality in oil-in-water emulsions (stabilizer and emulsifier) and in whipped products (stabilizer and whipping aid).
