    Not knowing your application or nation of origin I can only recommend Rheosol CTH(E) from Rheolabs in UK or USA. That is a cationic acrylic-based associative polymer, but it would not be effective in high surfactant systems. If you were using Rheovis in a fabric softener (cationic) I'd recommend an Opulyn (or Acusol?) acrylate/styrene copolymer from DOW as a thickener.

    Acusol 880 or Acusol 882, Opulyns are generally styrene/acrylates based opacifiers and wouldn't go with the cationic quats of the softener. 
  • Hi
    Rheovis CDE is being used for an ACIDIC Bathroom Cleaner as a thickener. The region is south east asia..Malaysia.
