WeKcelo MP ----- Hydroxypropyl Cellulose
WeKcelo MP ( HPMC ) is are ethers of cellulose and propylene oxide. It is easily soluble in cold water but not soluble in hot water. It is a non-ionic
cellulose ether and is compatible with many surfactants and polymers such as starch, guar and alginates. Solutions of Wekcelo MP are pseudoplastic,
some solutions show thixotropy.
Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose polymers are well-known for their ability to bind, retain water, thicken, form films, and provide many other performance benefits.
The number of substituent groups on the ring determines the properties of the various products . Highest methoxyl DS will yields maximum water solubility .
