Lubrajel DV is the most viscous of all grades of Lubrajel. It is employed in a variety of personal care products where rheology as well as moisturization and feel are important; rheology being of primary concern. Lubrajel DV, because of its high yield value, is especially suitable for emulsion stabilization and suspension of compatible materials such as titanium dioxide, relatively unionized pigments, micas and pearlescent pigments, and cholesterol esters (liquid crystals).
Despite its high viscosity and yield value, diaphragm pumps and other positive displacement pumps easily pump Lubrajel DV. Its pseudoplastic nature and high yield value results in a product that behaves as a solid when low shear rates are applied and as a liquid when the shear rate is increased.
