Hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC) can effectively suspend solid poisons in water-based sprays.
When HEC is used in spraying operations, it can play the role of adhering the poison to the leaves; HEC can be used as a thickener for spray emulsions to reduce drug drift, thereby increasing the use effect of foliar spraying.
HEC can also be used as a film-forming agent in seed coating agents; as an adhesive in the recycling of tobacco leaves.
HEC can be applied in gypsum, cement, lime and mortar systems, tile paste and mortar. In cement components, it can also be used as retarder and water retention agent. In the surface treatment of wallboard work, it is used in the preparation of latex, which can pre-treat the surface and relieve the pressure of the wall, so that the effect of painting and surface coating is better; it can be used as a thickener for wallpaper glue.
HEC can improve the performance of gypsum mortar by increasing the hardening and spreading time. In terms of compressive strength, torsional strength and dimensional stability, HEC has better effects than other celluloses.
Landcel is a manufacturer and distributor of HEC, which can develop and produce various types of HEC for construction.
