HPMC YB 4000

EipponCellHPMC E4000 is a hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose ether specifically designed for use in ceramics. Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) is a non-ionic cellulose ether derived from natural polymer material cellulose through a series of etherification processes. It is a white powder that is odorless, tasteless, and non-toxic. When added to cold water, it forms a clear or slightly cloudy colloidal solution. HPMC possesses several properties such as thickening, dispersing, emulsifying, film-forming, suspending, adsorbing, surface activity, moisture retention, and colloid protection. It finds extensive applications in various industries, including building materials, coating industry, synthetic resin, ceramic industry, textiles, agriculture, daily chemicals, and more.

Application of HPMC YB 4000

In the ceramic industry, KimaCell® HPMC E4000 is utilized as a binder for molding ceramic products, providing lubricity, water retention, and enhancing the initial strength of raw materials. The concentrated solution is absorbed onto the surface of ceramic particles, reducing friction between the particles and improving lubrication. This results in molded products with the desired surface finish and dimensional stability. Additionally, HPMC with low ash content can be used to obtain sintered ceramic products with excellent electrical properties.

The addition of HPMC to ceramic products offers the following benefits:

1.Enhanced workability during the molding process of ceramic products.

2.Improved green body strength of ceramic products.

3.Favorable lubricating performance, facilitating extrusion molding.

4.Achieving a smooth and delicate surface appearance.

5.Ceramic products exhibit a highly compact internal structure after firing.
