Processing and Storage

Processing Instructions
Genamin STAC is melted at 75 – 80°C together with the emulsifier, especially nonionic are well suited, consistency modifier and any oils used. The aqueous phase is heated separately to the same temperature and added while stirring the melted quat/consistency modifier/oil phase. Active substances and perfume oils should be added only after the mixture has cooled down to about 35°C.

Storage Instructions
Usual protection meassurements are nessasary because of the isopropanol included. The product must be protected from excessively high and low temperatures during storage. Further information on handling, storage and dispatch is given in the EC Safety Data Sheet.

Applications

Genamin STAC is used mainly in creme rinses and hair conditioners. The concentration required is 0.5% - 2.0%, relative to the active substance. The concentration required depends on the hair. The more damaged the hair is the more Genamin STAC will be used to achieve best effect. Other possible applications are in the manufacture of antistatic fixatives for permanent waving, hair lotions, shampoos and styling creams.

As a cationic surfactant, Genamin STAC is adsorbed onto negatively charged surfaces without leaving a visible film, for example on the hair. Because of this and its associated properties, Genamin STAC is especially suitable as an active ingredient for hair cosmetics. Genamin STAC offers a good softening and a good antistatic effect for normal hair.

Genamin STAC is absorbed onto the hair from aqueous and alcoholic solutions as well as from emulsions (dispersions) also in combination with other additives, such as film-forming agents and fatty components, and, be- cause of the reduction in surface resistance, prevents the hair flying after combing.
