ETHOCEL™ ethylcellulose polymers are organosoluble products with a narrow specification and uniform ethoxyl functionality. This enables ETHOCEL™ to have very predictable performance, key to industrial applications where the same output is desired batch to batch.
ETHOCEL™ polymers are water-insoluble thermoplastic polymers; they can therefore be employed for a wide variety of functions. They are used for rheology modification, film formation, binding, water barriers, and as time-release agents. ETHOCEL™ can also be effectively used as a sacrificial binder as they exhibit clean burn out.
DuPont and ChemPoint formed a strategic partnership in April 2014 to establish a new order, delivery and service model, specifically designed to meet customer needs in industrial applications, for ETHOCEL™ ethylcellulose polymers, METHOCEL™ cellulose ethers, POLYOX™ water-soluble polymers, and WALOCEL™ CRT products. Our collective goal is to enhance the customer experience by providing a higher degree of service and support powered by a dedicated technical marketing & sales team focused exclusively on DuPont's cellulosic and poly(ethylene oxide) offerings in industrial applications. The industrial cellulosics team at ChemPoint acts as a fully-integrated extension of DuPont and is always available to facilitate customer needs for product selection, technical support, order placement and fulfillment. In addition, our customers receive needed support from ChemPoint’s customer service and supply chain professionals to ensure on-time delivery and high service levels.Frequently Asked Questions About ChemPoint About DuPont
