Methyl Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (MHEC) is a non-ionic cellulose ether that widely used in construction materials. It could be dissolved in hot or cold water to form a transparent solution with a particular viscosity. The properties of methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose and methylcellulose are similar, but the presence of hydroxyethyl makes MHEC cellulose more soluble in water, the solution is more compatible with salt and has a higher aggregation temperature.

Methyl Hydroxyethyl Cellulose Uses
MHEC cellulose powder is widely used in the building industry. For example, it can be used in tile adhesive, joint filler, self-leveling mortar, plaster, skim coat, paint and coatings, etc. As a non-ionic cellulose ether, HMEC powder has a good stabilization and thickening effect in paint, which can make the paint produce good wear resistance. The lubricity of MHEC cellulose can greatly improve the mortar workability (such as improve the bond strength of mortar, reduce water absorption, and enhance anti-sag of mortar), which is helpful for improving work efficiency.
Except for the construction industry, methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose is also used in the food industry, daily chemicals, and other fields. In the food industry, HEMC cellulose is used as adhesion, emulsification, film formation, thickening, suspending, dispersing, water retention agents, etc. In daily chemicals, it is used as an additive for toothpaste, cosmetics, and detergent.
