Advantages of hydroxypropyl methylcellulose application in detergents

Hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose is a kind of methyl cellulose propylene glycol ether. In which hydroxypropyl and methyl group by the ether bond and the anhydrous glucose ring of cellulose binding. Non-ionic cellulose ether, easily dispersed in cold water. The solution after drying can form a film, aqueous solution is pseudoplastic fluid characteristics, with stirring effect. Reversible thermogels are formed after heating, and the gel formation temperature depends on the relative content and substitution of methyl and hydroxypropyl. But the surface tension increases upon heating, contrary to ordinary surfactant traits. Concentrating at the interface so that the interface concentration is much higher than in the interior of the solution.HPMC

Commonly used as food water agent, reversible hot gel properties can avoid various stuffing (steamed stuffed bun, dumplings, etc.) due to excessive heating and shrink “dry”. Used in oil fries can reduce oil content and oil consumption. And increase surface activity and stable foam function, can lead to increase the volume of baked products. In the bread mixed with rice flour or soybean powder can form a good organization structure.HPMC

Advantages of hydroxypropyl methylcellulose application in detergents:
  • 1.As a non-ionic thickener, the viscosity of the thickened surface activity system is relatively stable with the temperature change. And it is not prone to jelly like that of Nacl with cold resistance. HPMC
  • 2. Electrolytes resistant
  • 3. Improve the fluid of the system, have a sense of drawing, and make the cleaning effect more smooth, improve the skin feeling, and improve the dry and wet hair combing
  • But it is easy to condense in cold water, so attention should be paid to the correct dissolution of the hydroxypropyl methylcellulose HPMC method
