Modified HEC ( HEC-MCT )

Based on the normal HEC, we also can provide modified HEC according to customers’ requirements. After modified and surface treatment, we can get the goods which is dispersed in water quickly, lengthen open time, anti-sagging, etc.

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.。

3.Main Purpose

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..
