What is Hydroxy Ethyl Cellulose?

Hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC) is a non-ionic, water-soluble polymer derived from cellulose. It is formed by chemically modifying cellulose through the addition of hydroxyethyl groups (-CH2CH2OH) onto the cellulose backbone.

Here are some key points about hydroxyethyl cellulose:

1). Thickening Agent: HEC is commonly used as a thickening and rheology-modifying agent in various industries, including cosmetics, personal care products, pharmaceuticals, and coatings. It can increase the viscosity and improve the texture and stability of formulations.

2). Water-Soluble: HEC is soluble in water and forms clear, viscous solutions. It exhibits a pseudoplastic behavior, meaning it reduces its viscosity when subjected to shear stress, such as during stirring or pumping, but quickly recovers its viscosity when the stress is removed.

3). Film-Forming: HEC has film-forming properties, which makes it useful in applications where a thin, uniform film is desired. It can provide protective coatings, moisture barrier properties, and adhesion enhancement.

4). Stabilizer and Emulsifier: HEC can act as a stabilizer and emulsifier in emulsion systems, helping to prevent phase separation and maintain stability. It is often used in emulsions such as creams, lotions, and ointments.

5). Controlled Release Applications: Due to its water-solubility and film-forming properties, HEC can be utilized in controlled release formulations for drug delivery systems. It can help control the release rate of active ingredients from pharmaceutical dosage forms.

6). Compatibility: HEC is compatible with a wide range of other ingredients and can be easily incorporated into various formulations. It is compatible with salts, acids, bases, and many other additives commonly used in cosmetic, personal care, and pharmaceutical products.

7). Biodegradability and Safety: HEC is considered biodegradable and is generally regarded as safe for use in consumer products. However, as with any ingredient, it is important to follow recommended usage levels and consider individual sensitivities or allergies.

HEC is a versatile polymer with a wide range of applications due to its thickening, film-forming, and stabilizing properties. Its versatility and compatibility make it a popular choice in the formulation of various products in industries such as cosmetics, personal care, pharmaceuticals, and coatings.     
Our trade process spreads across CIF, FOB, TTO, and TTT, depending on the buyer's preference.

Here's what they entail:

1). Cost Insurance and Freight (CIF): Here, the seller will handle everything from loading the vessel, paying for insurance, and sending the product to wherever the buyer wants it delivered.

2). Freight On Board (FOB): Here, the seller pays for the transportation of the goods to the port of shipment, plus loading costs, while the buyer pays the cost of marine freight transport, insurance, unloading, and transportation from the originating port to the final destination.

3). Tanker Take Over (TTO): Here, the buyer will take over the vessel, offload the product at their destination, and return it.

4). Tanker To Tanker (TTT): Here, the buyer uses their own vessel, long sides with the seller's vessel, and then the cargo is transshipped when the transaction is fully settled.
