It is soluble or dispersible in most non-polar materials. It is not water soluble, however for highly aqueous systems, the addition of a co- solvent, coupling agent or surfactant (eg. Polysorbate 20) in a 1:1 ratio will make it water soluble to obtain a clear system.
Jeecide CAP-5 is stable in a formulation range of pH 3 - 6.5
