INCI Name : HEC, Hydroxy Ethyl Cellulose
Product Description : HYDROCEL- Hydroxyethylcellulose (HEC) is a nonionic cellulose ether that readily dissolves in water to form viscous solutions. Chemically, it is high purity cellulose that has been etherified to form hydroxyethyl groups to give the desired solubility in water. In solution the product acts as a thickener and rheology control agent, as a protective colloid, binder, stabilizer and suspending agent. Can be used as a protective colloid, stabilizer and suspending agent. Offers very good pseudoplastic flow behaviour and wide compatibility with other materials such as emulsion polymers, natural and synthetic gums, emulsifiers, defoamers, pigments, surfactants and preservatives.
