Chemical Structure

hydroxypropyl methylcellulose

Product Introduction:

Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC), also referred to as hypromellose, is a white to beige cellulose powder that is a semi-synthetic, inactive, viscoelastic polymer.

The solubility of hydroxypropyl methylcellulose in natural solvents is better than that of water solubility. It can be liquified in anhydrous methanol as well as ethanol, as well as in natural solvents such as chlorinated hydrocarbons and ketones.

Hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose is a type of non-ionic cellulose mixed ether, which has the qualities of being soluble in cold water and also insoluble in hot water similar to methyl cellulose.

In the application of artificial resins, hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose can make the gotten items have the qualities of regular particle size, looseness, suitable specific gravity, and also superb processing performance, which essentially replaces jelly and also polyvinyl alcohol as dispersants.

It can be utilized alone in cold beverages, as well as hydroxypropyl methylcellulose can likewise be made use of in combination with other emulsifiers and stabilizers. The optimum amount in chilly beverages is 1%.

  5. Plastic: hydroxy methyl cellulose can be utilized as mold launch agent, conditioner, lube, etc
  6. Polyvinyl chloride: It is made use of as a dispersant in the production of polyvinyl chloride, and also it is the primary auxiliary representative for the prep work of PVC by suspension polymerization.
  7. Drug sector: layer products, movie products, rate-controlling polymer materials for sustained-release prep work, stabilizers, putting on hold agents, tablet binders, tackifiers, etc
  8. Others: hydroxy methyl cellulose is additionally commonly utilized in natural leather, paper items, fruit and vegetable conservation and textile markets.

Application of Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose in Certain Industries

In The Building Market

  1. Concrete mortar: boost the dispersibility of cement-sand, substantially improve the plasticity as well as water retention of mortar, as well as successfully prevent cracks as well as boost the strength of concrete.
  2. Ceramic tile concrete: Enhance the plasticity as well as water retention of journalism floor tile mortar, improve the bonding pressure of the tiles, and also avoid pulverization.
  3. Finish of refractory materials such as asbestos: as a putting on hold representative, a fluidity improver, and also to boost the bonding pressure to the substrate.
  4. Plaster coagulation slurry: boost water retention and processability, and also improve bond to the substrate.
  5. Joint cement: including hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose to the joint concrete for gypsum board can enhance fluidity and also water retention.
  6. Latex putty: Boost the fluidity as well as water retention of putty based on material latex.
  7. Stucco: As a paste instead of all-natural products, it can boost water retention and enhance the bonding pressure with the substratum.
  8. Coatings: hydroxypropyl methylcellulose can be utilized as a plasticizer for latex finishings, which can enhance the performance and also fluidity of finishes and also putty powders.
  9. Spray layer: It has a great effect on protecting against cement-based or latex-based splashing only worldly filler from improving and sinking fluidness and also spray pattern.
  10. Secondary items of cement and plaster: It is utilized as extrusion molding binder for hydraulic materials such as cement-asbestos to enhance fluidness and also acquire uniform molded items.
  11. Fiber wall surface: It is effective as a binder for sand walls because of its anti-enzyme and anti-bacterial results.
  12. Others: It can be utilized as a bubble retainer for thin mortar as well as plasterer operators.

In The Chemical Sector

  1. Polymerization of plastic chloride as well as vinylidene: As a suspension stabilizer as well as dispersant throughout polymerization, it can be used together with plastic alcohol (PVA) hydroxypropyl cellulose (HPC) to regulate particle form and also fragment distribution.
  2. Adhesive: As the adhesive of wallpaper, it can generally be utilized together with vinyl acetate latex paint as opposed to starch.
  3. Chemicals: when contributed to chemicals and herbicides, it can improve the attachment effect during spraying.
  4. Latex: enhance the emulsion stabilizer of asphalt latex, as well as the thickener of styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) latex.
  5. Binder: hydroxypropyl methylcellulose can be used as a creating adhesive for pencils as well as pastels.

In The Cosmetic Industry

  1. Hair shampoo: Boost the viscosity of detergent, hair shampoo and cleaning agent as well as the security of air bubbles.
  2. Toothpaste: hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose can boost the fluidity of tooth paste.

In The Food Market

  1. Tinned citrus: to stop bleaching as well as deterioration as a result of the decomposition of citrus glycosides during storage to achieve the result of conservation.
  2. Cold food fruit products: contribute to sherbet, ice, and so on to make the preference better.
  3. Sauce: as an emulsifying stabilizer or thickening agent for sauces and catsup.
  4. Coating and glazing with cold water: hydroxypropyl methylcellulose is made use of for frozen fish storage, which can avoid discoloration and deterioration of quality. After coating and also glazing with methyl cellulose or hydroxypropyl methylcellulose liquid option, it is then iced up on ice.
  5. Adhesives for tablets: As a molding adhesive for granules and tablets, it has good bond and also collapse (swiftly thaws, falls down and also spreads when taking it).

In The Pharmaceutical Industry

  1. Finish: The coating agent is prepared into a service of an organic solvent or a liquid option for medicine administration, specifically the ready granules are spray-coated.
  2. Retarder: 2-3 grams per day, 1-2 grams each time, the effect will be shown in 4-5 days.
