KimaCell® EC N300 ethyl cellulose is a solvent-based cellulose ether prepared from natural polymer material cellulose through a series of chemical reactions. Ethyl cellulose has a small relative density (about 1.14) and high mechanical strength, and has many advantages that nitrocellulose cannot match: good light resistance (second only to cellulose acetate butyrate), non-flammable; Tasteless, odorless, non-toxic, has good chemical resistance, acid resistance, alkali resistance, salt resistance, water resistance, good heat resistance and cold resistance, and has excellent performance in a large temperature range The elasticity, especially the bending performance at low temperature is excellent. The alkali resistance of the coating prepared with ethyl cellulose is particularly stable. Among various cellulose coatings, the ethyl cellulose coating has better chemical corrosion resistance.

KimaCell® EC N300 ethyl cellulose can be used Heat-resistant coatings which are a type of special coatings with a wide range of uses. As the most commonly used silicone resin in heat-resistant coatings, they have been widely used in the coatings industry.
The use of ethyl cellulose modified silicone resin to produce ordinary heat-resistant coatings can improve the drying performance of heat-resistant coatings, so that silicone heat-resistant coatings that can only be cured into films after high-temperature baking can also be cured at room temperature. Membrane greatly facilitates construction and application. In particular, it provides convenience for the production of heat-resistant coatings by combining ethyl cellulose with silanol and silicon monomer hydrolysis waste, and the production process is simple and the product quality is stable. Utilizing the characteristics of ethyl cellulose's good heat resistance, stability and good air-drying property, it can be used together with silicone resin and silanol resin, and the heat-resistant silicone coating of various colors cured at room temperature at 300-400 ℃, It has been successfully applied in the production of raw materials. At the same time, because of some unique properties of ethyl cellulose, ethyl cellulose has been used in peelable coatings, alkali-resistant coatings, gold powder coatings, recording paper, drawings, carbon paper and fabrics, heat transfer printing of cloth, and flex fast printing inks, screen printing inks, fabric printing and coatings, electrical coatings, metal inks and other fields have also been widely used.
