The proper viscosity, feel, and staying power is important when choosing household and industrial cleaner components. DuPont poly(ethylene oxide) and cellulosic products provide multiple benefits to cleaning solutions and detergents. These benefits include but are not limited to thickening, stabilization, and binding.
METHOCEL™ cellulose ethers and POLYOX™ Water Soluble Resins are widely used in cleaners and detergents to enhance stability and appearance over time. They serve as thickeners, binders, stabilizers, and protective colloids. It is vitally important that the end user of these cleaners and degreasers have the same visual and tactile experience every time they use the product so that their perception of the product’s performance is maintained.
