Methyl 2-hydroxyethyl cellulose Function
Hydroxyethyl methylcellulose (MHPC) is an odorless, tasteless, non-toxic white powder that can be dissolved in cold water to form a transparent viscous solution. It has the properties of thickening, adhesion, dispersion, emulsification, film formation, suspension, adsorption, gelling, surface activity, moisture retention and protective colloid.
Since the aqueous solution has surface-active functions, it can be used as a colloidal protective agent, emulsifier and dispersant. Hydroxyethylmethylcellulose aqueous solution has good hydrophilicity and is an efficient water retention agent. Because hydroxyethyl methylcellulose contains hydroxyethyl groups, it has good anti-fungal ability and has good viscosity stability and anti-fungal degeneration during long-term storage.
Methyl 2-hydroxyethyl cellulose Usage
Widely used in water-based latex coatings, construction and building materials, printing inks, oil drilling, etc.
