EipponCell MHEC LH 610M, a methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose, is commonly utilized in various industries including papermaking, ceramics, textile printing and dyeing, and polymerization reactions. Different cross-linking agents can be employed for cross-linking modification based on the desired material properties in each field, ensuring compliance with specific application requirements. Broadly speaking, cross-linked modified cellulose ethers can be categorized into two types: etherified cross-linked cellulose ethers and esterified cross-linked cellulose ethers. Etherified cross-linking agents, such as aldehydes and epoxides, react with the -OH groups present in cellulose ether to form ether oxygen bonds (-O-). On the other hand, esterified cross-linking agents, including carboxylic acids, phosphides, and boric acid, react with the -OH groups on cellulose ether to form ester bonds.

Application of MHEC LH 610M

EipponCell MHEC MH10M, a methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose, exhibits excellent water retention and thickening properties, although it differs in certain aspects. As an anionic cellulose ether, it easily forms water-insoluble salts when exposed to divalent and trivalent cations. Compared to hydroxyethyl cellulose, methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose possesses lower shear viscosity and higher surfactant properties, which reduces splattering tendencies in latex paints. This cellulose ether offers advantages such as good fluidity in latex paint, low brush resistance, easy application, and favorable compatibility with pigments. Hence, it is recommended for use in silk latex paint, colored latex paint, and color paste, where pigments and fillers tend to precipitate. In order to maintain a uniform and stable coating, the pigments and fillers must remain suspended. The addition of cellulose ether imparts a certain viscosity to the paint, preventing precipitation during storage.
