Product Description:

Hydroxyethyl Cellulose Ether (HEC), chemical formula (C2H6O2)n, is a white or light yellow, odorless, non-toxic fibrous or powdery solid, composed of alkaline cellulose and ethylene oxide (or chlorohydrin) Prepared by etherification reaction, it belongs to non-ionic soluble cellulose ethers. Since Hec Chemical Additives have good properties of thickening, suspending, dispersing, emulsifying, bonding, film-forming, protecting moisture and providing protective colloid, it has been widely used in oil exploration, coatings, construction, medicine, food, textile, papermaking and polymer Polymerization and other fields.

1. As latex raw material. Hydroxyethyl cellulose is the most commonly used thickener in latex paints. In addition to thickening latex paint, it can also emulsify, disperse, stabilize and retain water.
2. For petrochemicals. During drilling, it can improve the sand-carrying ability of the mud and prolong the service life of the drill bit.
3. For pottery. Hydroxyethyl cellulose can be used to prepare high-strength adhesives for ceramics.
