HEC YB 200000

EipponCell® HEC YB 200000 Hydroxyethyl cellulose ether exhibits robust thermal stability up to 140 ℃ and remains free from precipitation under acidic conditions.   The aqueous solution of HEC manifests as a highly pseudoplastic fluid, with apparent viscosity decreasing in tandem with an increase in shear rate.   Notably, the pseudoplasticity of low molecular weight solutions closely resembles that of Newtonian fluids, showcasing minimal viscosity changes within the pH range of 2-12, albeit experiencing a decrease beyond this range.

Impressively, HEC demonstrates exceptional salt tolerance in the presence of electrolytes, ensuring that high salt concentrations do not induce viscosity changes through precipitation or sedimentation residues. Moreover, HEC boasts a water retention capacity twice that of methyl cellulose (MC), coupled with effective flow regulation.   Temperature dynamics also influence HEC’s behavior, with viscosity decreasing as the solution temperature rises and increasing as the temperature decreases.   These diverse attributes underscore the versatility and reliability of HEC YB 200000 in various applications.

Application of HEC YB 200000

EipponCell® HEC YB 200000 Hydroxyethyl cellulose has found widespread application in cosmetics and daily-use products, ranging from toothpaste and shower gel to hand sanitizer, skin cream, shampoo, glycerin skin care lotion, shoe polish, and detergent.  Its primary role is to act as a thickening agent, facilitating the formation of stable emulsified systems in these products.

In soap-based shower gels, where the main active ingredient is soap, the resulting formulation avoids the typical greasy feeling associated with general surfactants.  This ensures easy cleansing while preserving the natural luster of the skin.  Notably, HEC showcases exceptional solvent resistance to electrolytes, maintaining stability even in high-concentration salt environments.  Consequently, utilizing HEC as a thickener for soap-based shower gels emerges as the optimal choice.

For hand sanitizers, where the solubility of disinfectants and bactericides in aqueous solutions can vary significantly, the incorporation of HEC proves invaluable.  HEC contributes to the creation of a uniform and stable emulsified system, ensuring consistent performance and efficacy in hand sanitizing formulations.  The versatility of HEC makes it a key ingredient in enhancing the texture, stability, and overall effectiveness of a diverse range of cosmetic and daily-use products.
