KimaCell® MHEC MH10M methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose is often used in papermaking, ceramics, textile printing and dyeing, and polymerization reactions. and other fields. According to the requirements of material properties in various fields, different cross-linking agents can be used for cross-linking modification to meet application requirements. Generally speaking, cross-linked modified cellulose ethers can be divided into two categories: etherified cross-linked cellulose ethers and esterified cross-linked cellulose ethers. Cross-linking agents such as aldehydes and epoxides react with -OH on cellulose ether to form ether oxygen bonds (-O-) and are etherified cross-linking agents. Carboxylic acid, phosphide, boric acid and other cross-linking agents react with -OH on cellulose ether to form ester bonds, which are esterified cross-linking agents.

KimaCell® MHEC MH10M methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose have excellent water retention and thickening properties, but some properties are different. Anionic cellulose ether, easy to form water-insoluble salts with divalent and trivalent cations. Methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose has a lower shear viscosity and higher surfactant properties than hydroxyethyl cellulose, thus reducing the tendency of latex paints to splatter. Methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose has the characteristics of good fluidity in latex paint, low brushing resistance, easy construction, and good compatibility with pigments, so it is recommended for silk latex paint, colored latex paint, color paste. Pigments and fillers have a tendency to precipitate. To keep the coating uniform and stable, the pigment fillers must be in a suspended state. The use of cellulose ether can make the paint have a certain viscosity, and no precipitation will occur during storage.
