• SYLVAGEL™ 5100 and SYLVAGEL™ LP


• Vegetable dimer acid-based


• Very high renewable bio-carbon content

• Gels non-polar, low-polar industrial solvent mixtures: mineral oils, methyl soyate, castor oil, esters


• Hydrophobic, forms Water-in-gelled Oil Emulsions (W/OG)

• Applications: Clear gelled air freshener, gelled solvent cleaners with non-polar solvents

• Benefits: structurant for low polar liquids, water repellant agent, barrier film former
