Add gradually to the water phase of your recipe while constantly stirring to disperse evenly and prevent the formation of lumps. To fully hydrate the product you can  add  dilute sodium hydroxide to take the pH to 8 to ensure complete hydration (readjust pH later), or stick blend until full viscosity is achieved, usually 5-15 minutes.

Usage rate: 0.3 - 3.0%
CAS#: 9004-62-0, 127-09-3, 67-63-0
