Efficient and versatile - the twin faces of a market leader

METHOCEL™ cellulose ethers are water-soluble methylcellulose and hydroxypropyl methylcellulose polymers. They're derived from cellulose, the most abundant polymer in nature, and used as thickeners, binders, film-formers and for water-retention. They also function as suspension aids, protective colloids and emulsifiers.

  • Does the job of two or more ingredients in many applications
  • Delivers optimum performance at a lower concentration than required by other water-soluble polymers
  • Peerless range of product types and performance
  • Viscosity grades range from 15 to over 200,000 mPa's for optimum thickening, binding, moisture retention and other properties

Further formulating versatility comes from the fact that METHOCEL™ products are available in three different consistencies (powder, surface-treated powder, and granular), which allow maximum processing flexibility.
