KimaCell®MC A4C Methylcellulose has 4 important functions: thickening, surface activity, film-forming properties, and thermogel formation (melting on cooling). Methyl cellulose solution is stable in a wide pH range (3.0~11.0), and it has a unique thermogelling property, that is, it forms a gel when heated and melts when cooled, and the gelling temperature ranges from 50°C ~70°C.

KimaCell® MC A4C Methyl cellulose can be used in food, adhesives, ceramics etc applications.
Adhesive: used as a thickener and adhesive in the formulation of the adhesive.
Ceramics: impart lubricity, water retention and improve the original strength of the billet.
Cosmetics: adjust the rheology to make the product have proper viscosity, emulsification degree, stability, lubricity and foam stability, and compatibility of surfactants.
Food: as thickener, binder, stabilizer, water retaining agent, molding
