Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (HEC)


Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (HEC)

Product overview


MikaZone™ Hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC) is a nonionic, water-soluble polymer that
can thicken, suspend, bind, emulsify, form films, stabilize, disperse, retain water, and provide protective colloid action. It is readily soluble
in hot or cold water and can be used to prepare solutions with a wide range of viscosities. Main application for HEC is water base paints.

Mikavae™ Redispersible Powder

Mikavae™ VAE polymer powders combine the adhesion of vinyl acetate with the flexibility of ethylene. The powders can be quickly redispersed into an emulsion after contact with water, and the emulsion has the same properties as the original dispersion. When the RDP is emulsified and dispersed in water, it will form a polymer film after the water evaporates, This film has high bonding ability and unique properties, such as high flexibility, high heat resistance, and high adhesion to the various substrates

Excellent Thickening Efficiency
MikaZone™ Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (HEC) is an excellent thickener in water-based paint and coatings. The thickening efficiency is excellent, with a wide range of viscosity grades to choose from, and any desired thickening effect can be obtained. For latex paint, it helps to realize excellent application properties. With its high performance in thickening, MikaZone™ HEC helps to improve paint abrasion ability and excellent coating ability without flocculation.
water retention
MikaZone™ Hydroxyethyl Cellulose(HEC) is conducive to maintain the water at desired levels in the formulation. Adding MikaZone™ HEC can provide high water retention for water-based coatings. Even if it is applied on a dry substrate or a super absorbent substrate, or under the conditions of high temperature and high wind speed, the water-based coating can form a uniform film without cracks and powder falling.
Enzyme resistance
MikaZone™ Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (HEC) provides resistance against fungi and bacterial attacks, which allows its excellent viscosity, stability, and long-term storage. MikaZone HEC grades with B are specially for biological resistance.
Good Compatibility
MikaZone™ Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (HEC) is a non-ionic soluble cellulose ether, with wide compatibilities that can be matched with various additives for polymer emulsions and water-based coatings(such as dispersants, wetting agents, and film-forming additives), pigments, surfactants, emulsifiers, preservatives, and binders, etc. And no chemical reaction occurs between them, which is beneficial to the storage stability of water-based coatings.
