KimaCell® HEC HS30000 Hydroxyethyl cellulose is a non-ionic cellulose ether, HEC has better performance in thickening, emulsification, film-forming, protective colloid, moisture retention, adhesion, anti-allergic and other aspects compared with ionic cellulose ether. It is widely used in Oilfield mining, latex coatings, polymer polymerization, building materials, daily chemicals, food, pharmaceuticals, papermaking, textile printing and dyeing and other fields. With the acceleration of domestic urbanization, the demand for products will definitely increase year by year. There are vast rural areas in China, and downstream products will also increase growth. Improve product quality to resist fierce competition in the market. The demand will increase, but for HEC product quality and cost performance requirements will be higher. In the future, product quality and brand will become the focus of competition. Breaking through technical barriers and ensuring product stability will be the key to the sustainable development of the future market.

KimaCell® HEC HS30000 Hydroxyethyl cellulose is used in many fields of national livelihood. For example, in the textile field, HEC treated cotton, synthetic fibers or blends can improve their wear resistance, dyeability, fire resistance and stain resistance, as well as improve their body stability (shrinkage) and durability Resilience, especially for synthetic fibers, can make them breathable and reduce static electricity. It has a thickening effect in the printing and dyeing paste and can be used as a carrier for dyes to disperse the dyes well, provide excellent permeability, and the correctness and stability of patterns and colors. In addition, in the field of papermaking, HEC can be used as a sizing agent, a strengthening agent and a paper modifier.
