    Product Overview

    Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) is a synthetic water-soluble polymer derived from cellulose by chemical modification. It appears as a white or nearly white powder. Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose has good solubility in water, forming transparent or slightly opaque solutions. It can provide characteristics such as thickening, stabilization and viscosity control, with uses in construction materials, pharmaceutical formulations, foods, cosmetics and industrial products.

    The main application of Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose
    • Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) in food processing plays a role as a thickener and stabilizer, increasing the viscosity and stability of products such as sauces, ice cream, and bread.
    • Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) in pharmaceutical applications serves as a sustained-release agent and stabilizer, controlling the release rates of drugs and protecting them from moisture and chemical reactions.
    • Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) in cosmetics like shampoo, toothpaste, and soap enhances product thickness, foaming, and user experience.
    • Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) in construction materials is used to improve mortar viscosity and adhesion, aiding in workability and crack resistance.
    • Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) in printing inks and paper pulp acts as a thickener, wetting agent, and moisture retention agent, enhancing print quality and paper performance.
