Hydroxyethyl cellulose(HEC) is a gelling and thickening agent derived from cellulose.  HEC is a commonly used thickener in paint & coating formulations. HEC thickeners are used in paint & coating formulations to increase the viscosity of the paint and to improve its flow and leveling properties.

1.For painting

HEC can be used as a protective colloid for vinyl acetate emulsion polymerization to improve the stability of the polymerization system over a wide pH range. In the process of coating production, HEC can disperse pigments, auxiliaries, fillers and salts evenly, and play as stabilizing and thickening. It can endow the coating with good rheological property and pseudoplasticity, and improve the anti-sag property and anti-spatter property of the coating.

2.For cosmetic and detergents

HEC can be used in shampoo, bath fluid, hand sanitizer, toothpaste, lotion and cream, etc., it can thicken and stabilize the paste, and act as anti-redeposition agent for dirt in washing powder.
