Stability against metal ions

Under co-existing of metal ions, the stability of other water soluble polymer thickeners decreases. This is presumably because intramolecular repulsion stems from ionic charge of the polymer is weakened due to electrical shielding by excessive metal ions. Saltolera®, on the other hand, can achieve the desired increased viscosity by adding salt.

Condition pH 8 Saltolera® 1% added at room temperature
Measurement condition B8H rotational viscometer at 3rpm
