KimaCell HEC improves paint color compatibility to better accept spray, brush, and roller colors. HEC has good workability, prevents paint splatter and improves sag resistance. It also maintains sustainable levels of settling during paint storage, ensuring extended shelf life.

Properties of KimaCell HEC ( 9004 62 0 ) are enhanced by the use of hydroxyethyl cellulose for paint &coatings:

  • Thickening

  • Water retention

  • Protective colloid

  • Binding power

  • Open time

  • Adjustment of consistency

  • Spattering

Application of paint should be smooth and easy, while spattering must be kept to a minimum. To achieve these properties, only a small amount of KimaCell HEC is required. Concentrations of 0.2 % - 0.5 % are typically required, depending on the system used. The choice of KimaCell HEC type depends on the different application and requirements.
