Hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC)

MikaZone™ Hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC) is a nonionic, water-soluble polymer that
can thicken, suspend, bind, emulsify, form films, stabilize, disperse, retain water, and provide protective colloid action. It is readily soluble
in hot or cold water and can be used to prepare solutions with a wide range of viscosities. Main application for HEC is water base paints.

Product Specifications

Our HEC products have many properties, such as water retention, thickening, suspension, anti-microbial erosion, high salt tolerance, and ion/PH insensitive. They have been applied in various industries, including paints and coatings, oil drilling, adhesives and sealants, ceramic, metal castings, personal care, pharmaceuticals, and paper industry.

MikaZone™ Hydroxyethyl Cellulose(HEC) is conducive to maintain the water at desired levels in the formulation. Adding MikaZone™ HEC can provide high water retention for water-based coatings. Even if it is applied on a dry substrate or a super absorbent substrate, or under the conditions of high temperature and high wind speed, the water-based coating can form a uniform film without cracks and powder falling.

MikaZone™ Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (HEC) provides resistance against fungi and bacterial attacks, which allows its excellent viscosity, stability, and long-term storage. MikaZone HEC grades with B are specially for biological resistance.

MikaZone™ Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (HEC) is a non-ionic soluble cellulose ether, with wide compatibilities that can be matched with various additives for polymer emulsions and water-based coatings(such as dispersants, wetting agents, and film-forming additives), pigments, surfactants, emulsifiers, preservatives, and binders, etc. And no chemical reaction occurs between them, which is beneficial to the storage stability of water-based coatings.
