Application of MHEC MH6M

KimaCell® MHEC MH6M methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose is mainly used in the fields of construction and coatings. This type of cellulose ether must have good water retention, thickening, salt and temperature resistance, and shear resistance. It is often used in cement mortar, latex paint, Tile adhesives, exterior wall coatings, real stone paint, etc. Since the construction and coating fields require materials to have good mechanical strength and stability, etherified crosslinking agents are generally used to crosslink and modify cellulose ethers, such as epoxy halogenated alkanes and boric acid crosslinking agents. Cross-linking it can improve product viscosity, salt and temperature resistance, shear resistance and mechanical properties.

In the industry, glyoxal is often used to cross-link cellulose ether to delay its dissolution time and solve the problem of agglomeration when the product is dissolved.

Glyoxal cross-linked cellulose ether can only change its solubility, but has no obvious improvement on other properties.
