KimaCell® MHEC MH200MS methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose is a polymer compound with an ether structure made of cellulose. Each glucosyl ring in the cellulose macromolecule contains three hydroxyl groups, the primary hydroxyl group on the sixth carbon atom, the secondary hydroxyl group on the second and third carbon atoms, and the hydrogen in the hydroxyl group is replaced by a hydrocarbon group to generate cellulose ether derivatives things. It is a product in which the hydrogen of the hydroxyl group in the cellulose polymer is replaced by a hydrocarbon group.
Cellulose ether is a polyhydroxy polymer compound that neither dissolves nor melts. After etherification, cellulose is soluble in water, dilute alkali solution and organic solvent, and has thermoplasticity.

KimaCell® MHEC MH200MS methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose is widely used in laundry detergent, latex paint, oil fields, Mining, polymer polymerization, building materials, daily chemicals, food, pharmaceuticals, papermaking, textile printing and dyeing and other industries.MHEC is a non-ionic cellulose ether. Compared with ionic cellulose ether, it has better performance in thickening, emulsification, film formation, protective colloid, moisture retention, adhesion, and anti-allergy.
MHEC products have shown strong vitality since their birth. With the advancement of technology and the development of new fields, MHEC will be applied to a wider range of fields. Judging from the current development trend, the next few years will definitely bring about the integration of industry resources, and enterprises will use their respective advantages to become more and more specialized, forming their own enterprise advantages, product advantages, brand advantages and cost advantages. After vicious competition such as homogenization and price suppression, enterprises will become more and more rational and specialized, and through integration, they will have their own characteristics and core advantages.
