Enzymatic hydrolysis performance of hydroxyethyl cellulose HEC will degrade under the action of enzymes, reducing the viscosity. The resistance to biodegradation was measured by the change of viscosity of HEC solution before and after enzyme attack under certain conditions. Changing the molecular structure of HEC can improve its resistance to enzymatic degradation. Only when the

HEC(Hydroxyethyl cellulose) is used as an additive in various aspects. This article briefly introduces the main characteristics of HEC. Thickening Hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC) is an ideal thickener for paints and cosmetics. In practical application, the combination of its thickening property, suspending property, safety, dispersibility and water retention will produce more ideal effect. Pseudoplasticity Pseudoplasticity is

What is Hydroxyethyl Cellulose?

What is Hydroxyethyl Cellulose Hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC) is an important hydroxyalkyl cellulose. It was successfully prepared by Hubert in 1920. And it is also a water-soluble cellulose ether with a large production volume in the world. It is an important cellulose ether with the largest output and rapid development after CMC and HPMC. At present,

How to Apply Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (HEC) in the Coating Industry?

By |2023-02-15T01:46:43+00:00June 15th, 2022|Industry News, Product Applications|

In this article we introduce HEC in the Coating Industry. Hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC) is a white or light yellow, odourless, non-toxic fibrous or powdered solid. Prepared by etherification of basic cellulose and ethylene oxide (or chloroethanol), a non-ionic soluble cellulose ether. Due to its good thickening, suspending, dispersing, emulsifying, bonding, film forming, moisture protection and

Types of cellulose ether and mechanism of action (III)
