    clays might work.  What else is in the formula?

    Have you Googled "acid thickener"
  • Dear mummydee
    You can use amineoxide surfactant preferably combination of amineoxides with sles for thickening HCl solution.
    Stepan has a very nice surfactant for this purpose: BIO-SOFT TA-2. go to Stepan website and follow this surfactant.

    And yet another thread where someone asks a question, gets tons of help
    and disappears without any other post to even say thank you.  Wasn't anyone taught manners by their parents??
