General description

2-Hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC) is a water soluble biopolymer that is majorly used as a thickener and an adhesive. It has water retention which also includes good film forming ability for protective covering.
Non-ionic water soluble polymer. Aqueous solutions are pseudoplastic. Readily disperses without lumping.

Application

Thickener, protective colloid, binder, stabilizer and suspending agent.

There are special requirements for draining a pouch, e.g. length, flexibility and ability to drain highly viscous urine. We checked in vitro the flow time of pure and synthetic urine thickened with hydroxyethylcellulose (0.125% and 0.250%, HEC) on selected catheters.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
