Applications

METHOCEL™ F4M PRG is designed for optimum performance in blended solvents systems such as paint strippers and removers. The product exhibits unique combination of water and organic solubility. It provides excellent thickening with shear thinning characteristics that improves contact time on vertical surfaces. METHOCEL™ F4M PRG can be used in paint strippers, cleaning solutions, and solvent based coatings and inks.

  • Cleaning Solutions: METHOCEL™ F4M PRG provides improved thickening, viscosity control, soil anti-redeposition, emulsion stabilization to cleaners and detergents. 

  • Coatings and Inks: METHOCEL™ F4M PRG functions as thickener, protective colloid, and pigment suspension aid in coatings and inks. It improves film formation properties such as high tensile, strength, and elongation.

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.
