1. HPMC in the pharmaceutical industry
Application in dispersion formulations. Dispersed preparations include injections, internal medicines, external medicines and the like. In order to meet the different requirements of treatment, the medicines are usually made into the above-mentioned various dosage forms. For example: dispersed preparations, tablets, granules, pills, etc.
Others can be used in artificial plasma, artificial saliva, and bandages.
2.HPMC in construction industry
Used as a binder for ceramic tiles;
Used in cement bonded with inorganic bricks, tiles, stones or cement;
When used as an additive for bonding cement between porcelain silicate (tile) and concrete slab surface;
It can also be used as an additive for high-strength cement building materials;
Used as wallpaper adhesive;
Used as an adhesive for electrical components;
Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose(HPMC) can be used for bonding and has good adhesion for adhesive coatings.
3. Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose in coating industry
Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose(HPMC) can be used as a masking agent on electrical devices. And it can also be added to the polyether film layer, which can increase the heat transfer efficiency of polyether woven fabric printing. It can also be used as a coating for steel Parts, followed by silicate treatment, can prevent corrosion. It will make the coating have better anti-sagging ability.
4. Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose in food industry
The use of water-soluble polymers in food can endow them with certain functions and improve their properties. It is suitable as a stabilizer, adhesive, thickener, and film-forming agent in food.
Rapid rehydration of dry food: Dissolve 24g of HPMC in 1,000g of water under heating, then add 200g of dehydrated and crushed dry food, after 5 minutes, it can be rehydrated to absorb all the water.
Used as a food mask: it can prevent the moisture in the food from volatilizing, resist the invasion of microorganisms on the food, prevent food from spoilage, and keep the appearance and freshness of the food.
Adhesive and stabilizer for food: Adding HPMC to food can make the food look beautiful, prevent the loss of food aroma, and improve food quality.
