KimaCell® MHEC MH200M methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose is an important derivative of cellulose, which can be widely used in medicine and hygiene, daily chemical industry, papermaking, food, medicine, construction, materials and other industries. Therefore, the development and utilization of cellulose ether has positive significance for the comprehensive utilization of renewable biomass resources and the development of new materials and technologies. Cellulose ether is dissolved in water in the form of colloid, and its viscosity depends on the degree of polymerization of cellulose ether. The solution contains hydrated macromolecules. Due to the entanglement of macromolecules, the flow behavior of solutions is different from that of Newtonian fluids, but shows a behavior that changes with the change of shear force. Due to the macromolecular structure of cellulose ether, the viscosity of the solution increases rapidly with the increase of concentration and decreases rapidly with the increase of temperature.

KimaCell® MHEC MH200M methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose is used in Construction and paint industry.
In Building masonry and plastering mortar admixture, MHEC can be used as a retarder, water retaining agent, thickener and binder, and can be used as a dispersant, water retaining agent for plaster, mortar and ground plaster for gypsum base and cement base Agents, thickeners used. MHEC is a special masonry and plastering mortar admixture for aerated concrete blocks, which can improve the workability, water retention and crack resistance of mortar, and avoid cracking and hollowing of block walls.
In Building surface decoration material, MHEC is used to make an environmentally friendly building surface decoration material. The production process is simple and clean. It can be used for high-grade wall and stone tile surfaces, and can also be used for surface decoration of columns and monuments. MHEC is made into a ceramic tile grout, which has strong cohesive force, good deformation ability, no cracks and falling off, good waterproof effect, bright and colorful colors, and excellent decorative effect.
In paints, MHEC can be used as a stabilizer, thickener and water retention agent for latex paints. In addition, it can also be used as a dispersant, tackifier and film-forming agent for colored cement paints. Adding cellulose ether of appropriate specification and viscosity to latex paint can improve the construction performance of latex paint, prevent splashing, improve storage stability and hiding power, etc.
Cellulose ether products are often the first choice for latex paint thickeners. For example, the modified methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose ether has good comprehensive properties, so that it can maintain a leading position in latex paint thickeners. Another example, because cellulose ether has unique thermal gel characteristics and solubility properties, good salt resistance and heat resistance, and has appropriate surface activity, it can be used as a water-retaining agent, suspending agent, emulsifier, film-forming agent, lubricant, adhesives and rheology modifiers.
