Cellulose methyl ether
About Methyl Cellulose
Methyl cellulose is a synthetic, water-soluble polymer. Methyl cellulose is widely used in a variety of industries, including food, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics. It’s commonly used as a thickener or emulsifier.
Methyl cellulose is particularly useful because it is non-toxic, biodegradable, and does not have any significant impact on the taste or odor of the products in which it is used. It is also stable over a wide range of temperatures and pH levels.
In the food industry, methyl cellulose is used as a thickening and stabilizing agent, and is often added to sauces, soups, and dressings. It is also used as a fat replacer in low-fat or fat-free foods, as it can mimic the texture and mouthfeel of fat. In baking, methyl cellulose can improve the texture and shelf life of baked goods.
In the pharmaceutical industry, methyl cellulose is used as a binder, filler, and disintegrant in tablets and capsules. It is also used as a viscosity modifier in eye drops and other topical medications.
In the cosmetics industry, methyl cellulose is used as a thickener, emulsifier, and stabilizer in lotions, creams, and other personal care products. It can also help to improve the texture and spreadability of these products.
Methyl cellulose is used in mortar to improve properties such as workability, viscosity and adhesion. It’s used in paint as rheological modifier to prevent sagging.
