ETHOCEL™ Standard 20 Industrial is based on organosoluble ethylcellulose resin to provide a viscosity of 18 - 22.0 mPa.s at a moderate addition level. This product can be used in applications such as conductive inks, electronics, adhesives, and coatings.
ETHOCEL™ Standard 20 Industrial is utilized for its binding and rheology control properties when low viscosity is required:
Printing Inks: ETHOCEL™ Standard 20 Industrial is used in solvent-based inks for its improved binding and rheology control properties The product's organosolubility and high resistance makes it ideal for gravure, flexographic and screen printing ink applications.
Specialty Coatings: ETHOCEL™ Standard 20 Industrial provides waterproofing, toughness, flexibility, and high gloss in solvent-based specialty coatings such as paper, fluorescent lighting, roofing, enameling, lacquers, varnishes and marine coatings.
