Polymers as stabilizers: What impact on Stability?

When used at the right concentration, polymers have a positive impact on shelf life, however, at higher concentration, it may not only be more costly but will also lead to undesired and unexpected destabilizations (flocculation by depletion, particle sedimentation by tunneling, network compression... Learn about destabilization induced by the addition of polymer into formulations, the mechanism behind, how to test and predict the shelf life in just a couple of days or hours.
