Hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC) products are water-soluble polymers that thicken, form films, exhibit pseudoplastic solution behavior, tolerate salts and retain water, which is widely used in latex paints, building materials, oilfield chemicals and cleaning products, along with many other specialty applications. .
The three hydroxyl groups of each of the anhydroglucose units of the cellulose are activated with sodium hydroxide. Subsequently these groups are etherified with ethylene oxide to form the hydroxyethyl ether of cellulose. Ethylene oxide, reacting at previously substituted hydroxyl groups, can polymerize to form a side chain.
As a non ionic surface-active agent, it possesses the following characteristics in addition to acts of thicker agent, suspending agent, adhesive agent, emulsification agent, coating agent, water keeping agent and protective agent.
1. HEC can dissolve in both cool and hot water while it does not deposit when in hot or boiling water showing large range of non-gelatin capacity.
2. Because of non-ionic base, it can be coexist with other water-soluble polymizers, surface-active agent and salts.
3. Water keeping ability is twice that of Methyl Cellulose (MC)showing good flowage adjusting ability.
4.It is stable in viscosity and anti-mildew and makes coatings good open can effect ion as well as excellent floating-plain effects.
HEC hydroxyethyl cellulose Viscosity table:
Viscosity range (5%) m Pa.s
Brookfield viscosity (1% solution) m Pa. s
Brookfield viscosity (2% Solution) mPa. s
HEC is mainly used as adhesive protective gelatin, thicker agent and stabilizing agent as well as additives to make emulsion, frozen gelatin, lotion, eye clear agent, suppository and tablets. HEC is also used for hydrophilic colloid, framework. Material, ready-made framework controlled release agent, and stabilizing agent in foodstuff.
