Applications

METHOCEL™ A4M Premium works as a binder, rheology modifier, thickener, lubricant, film former, and suspension aid. The product is widely used in ceramics and extrusion applications. It is also used in gel packs, adhesives, and other applications when high purity is required.

  • Adhesives: METHOCEL™ A4M Premium is commonly used in adhesives as a film former, thickener, and binder. It provides improved wet-tack, quick set, and oil resistance to various types of adhesives. The product is utilized in specialty applications when premium purity is essential such as food packaging and medical adhesives.

  • Ceramics: METHOCEL™ A4M Premium is used to provide a high-quality thickening, improved binding and excellent rheology control in ceramics extrusion and casting. It also provides lubricity, smoother surfaces and prevents sag or deformation.

  • Plastics: METHOCEL™ A4M Premium acts as a suspension agent in PVC polymerization. The product provides exceptional particle size control, low reactor scaling, high bulk densities, and advanced plasticizer absorption.

METHOCEL™ Efficient and Versatile - the Twin faces of a Market Leader

METHOCEL™ cellulose ethers include methylcellulose (MC) or hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) polymers with solubilities ranging from water-soluble to organosoluble. METHOCEL ™ is an excellent rheology modifier, binder, film former, and water-retention agent. In addition, it has a few stand-out qualities. METHOCEL™ does not need hot water to dissolve; it is highly soluble in cold water. Therefore, energy can be conserved in dissolving the product. Another stand-out quality of METHOCEL™ is that once it is gelled by heat, it is able to revert back to liquid form when cooling. Many other thickeners do not have that flexibility.
