Reduce stickiness of xanthan gum, water & glycerin
« on: March 11, 2022, 06:19:33 AM »
Hello,
I initially mixed xanthan gum with glycerin. Once a uniform mix was formed, I added 40°C water & mixed.
After a uniform mixture was made & cool for 1 hour, I felt that the stickiness of the solution was too much.
Can someone kindly guide me as to how I can reduce the thickness & stickiness of the mixture (while maintaining its stability) without lump or sediment formation.

Add isopropanol (small amounts at a time) to reduce the surface tension (and possibly the stickiness).

Hello,

Thank you for the reply.

Please do explain the reaction between xanthan gum & isopropyl alcohol. And how much amount to add exactly?
