1. Chemical Name: Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (HEC)
AppearanceWhite or light yellow powder
Molar substitution m.s1.8-2.5
Loss on drying %≤6
Viscosity mPa.s 50-100000
Bulk Density g/l300-450
This product is a white or slightly yellow, odorless and tasteless easy flowing powder, the softening
temperature is 135-140℃; the performance density is 0.35-0 .61g/ml; the decomposition temperature is
205-210 °C; both soluble in cold water and soluble in hot water.Generally, it’s insoluble in most
organic solvents;When the pH value in the 2-12 range, the viscosity change is small, but more than
this range, the viscosity decreased.。
HEC-containing components latex paint has fast dissolving, low foam, thickening effect, good color
scalability and more stable performance. It nonionic features help stable in a wide range of pH
value range and allowed to have a broad range of formulations; The superior performance of the
product is in the pigment grinding addes the thickener to water can be controlled hydration;
High viscosity grade products have been developed primarily used in the production of water-soluble
latex paint, And the dosage is smaller than other thickeners.
In addition, HEC can also as a thickener, dispersant, bonding agent and stabilizer used in oil
drilling, agriculture, paper, ink, daily chemical, textile and other industries, etc..
【Storage】keep dry, away from heat and sunlight, store in an airtight container.
【Packing】plastic coated polypropylene woven bags.
