ETHOCEL™ Standard 45 Premium


Premium purity grade with the same properties as ETHOCEL™ Standard 45 Industrial.


Product Overview

ETHOCEL™ Standard 45 Premium is organosoluble, water-insoluble ethylcellulose polymer with similar properties as ETHOCEL™ Standard 45 Industrial, except for the higher purity level. The product provides 49% ethoxyl content and a viscosity of 45 cP. It can be used in electronics, conductive pastes, printing inks, specialty coatings, and many other applications.


ETHOCEL™ Standard 45 Premium is a higher quality ethylcellulose multi-functional resin. It works as a binder, thickener, rheology modifier, film former, and water barrier in many applications as detailed below:

  • Agriculture: ETHOCEL™ Standard 45 Premium can be used in adjuvants and seed coatings to stabilize emulsions when oily actives are present. It can also be used in fruit coatings.

  • Ceramics: ETHOCEL™ Standard 45 Premium is preferred in ceramics manufactured for electronics since it burns out cleanly without residues. 

  • Conductive Pastes: ETHOCEL™ Standard 45 Premium is used in conductive pastes and inks when high purity and clean burn out is required.

  • Electronics: ETHOCEL™ Standard 45 Premium is the most efficient binder in electronics for its ultra-purity, clean burn-out, high solubility, and pseudoplastic or thixotropy property for improved print and adhesion for lamination.

  • Other Applications: ETHOCEL™ Standard 45 Premium is also used in cleaners, coatings, printing inks, plasma display panels, photovoltaics, flexible packaging, lubricants, and any other solvent-based systems.
