Applications :

Methyl Hydroxyethyl Cellulose- MHEC is made from highly pure cotton-cellulose by reaction of etherification under alkaline conditions without any organs of animals, fat and other bioactive constituents.

MHEC appears to be white powder and is odorless and tasteless. It is featured by hygroscopicity and hardly soluble in hot water, acetone, ethanol and toluene. In cold water MHEC will swell into colloidal solution and its solybility is not influenced by PH value.Similar to methyl cellulose while being added to Hdroxyethyl groups. MHEC is more resistant to saline, easily soluble in water and has higher gel temperature.
