METHOCEL™ A15C is commonly used to provide thickening, rheology, binding, and film-forming properties. The product can be used in agriculture, cleaning solutions, coatings and ink applications especially when food grade approvals are required.
Agriculture: METHOCEL™ A15C is commonly used in crop protection for drift control, stabilization, and rheology modification. It works as a dispersing aid in wettable pesticides and fertilizers. It improves adhesion to waxy plant surfaces. It is also used in seed coatings and spray adherents for better binding to seeds. METHOCEL™ A15C is listed in EPA inert ingredients and allowed to be used in crop protection products.
Cleaning Solutions: METHOCEL™ A15C provides improved thickening, viscosity control, soil anti-redeposition, emulsion stabilization to cleaners and detergents.
Coatings and Inks: METHOCEL™ A15C is used as thickener, protective colloid and pigment suspension in coatings and inks. It provides outstanding film properties such as high tensile, strength, and elongation. It also improves workability and water retention for construction coatings.
