Acrylate Copolymer should be incorporated into the water phase (or glycerin) with neutralization. Neutralization levels of 80-100% are recommended. The neutralizing agent (e.g. 0.2-0.5% triethanolamine) may be added to the water phase and heated to 80°C before adding the polymer. The film forming polymer may then be slowly sifted in with good agitation and mixed for 20 minutes.
