Applications

METHOCEL™ K15MS is modified for retarded dissolution which makes it a perfect fit for adhesives, gel packs, drilling fluids, and other delayed thickening applications.

  • Adhesives: METHOCEL™ K15MS can be used as film former, thickener and binders in adhesives. It provides wet-tack, quick set, fast dry, and oil resistance to various types of adhesives.

  • METHOCEL™ K15MS has also been used in cleaners, asphalt emulsions, and plastic injection applications. It functions as a surface modifier and provides lubricity for smoother surface and application.

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.
