Eastman AQ™ 55S polymer is a sulfopolyester that disperses directly in hot water without the assistance of surfactants or other additives. AQ™ 55S polymer aids the dispersion of many hydrophobic ingredients in water-based products and forms clear films at room temperature from aqueous dispersions.AQ™ 55S is usually used in cosmetics and moisturizing products
1. Assist hydrophobic resin to be dispersed in aqueous solution
2. Can be used as plasticizers and thickeners
The Tg of AQ™55S is 55°C, the "S" indicates AQ 55S is supplied as solid pellets that can form microfoam emulsions in aqueous solution.
