MC (Methyl Cellulose)
Property: MC is a kind of non-ion aqueous cellulous ether, white or white-similar powder or granule, no odor or taste, nontoxic, with a little hygroscopicity. Different substitution offers different solubility, usually medium substitution (DS between 1.5-2.0) comes under cool aqueous model, and finds widest applications. It dissolves in cool water and some organic solvents, does not dissolve in hot water. In hot water at 80-90° C it dissolves and swells, after cooled down, dissolving quickly.
Its solution possesses reversible hot gelling characteristic, stable to acid and alkali, is not affected between pH 2-12, with excellent anti-mildew ability, capable of dispersing, emulsifying, agglomerating, thickening, holding water, forming film etc. Film formed by its offers superior toughness flexibility, transparency and oil resistance.
