METHOCEL™ F50 is utilized as a suspension aid in extrusion and PVC processing. It also functions as a rheology modifier, binder, lubricant, film former, and surface modifier. METHOCEL™ F50 is commonly used in plastics, coatings, inks, and cleaning solutions.
Coatings and Inks: METHOCEL™ F50 is used as surface modifier, protective colloid and pigment suspension aid 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.
Plastics: METHOCEL™ F50 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.
