Application

(Hydroxypropyl)methyl cellulose (HPMC), an inert viscoelastic polymer is used as an emulsifier, thickening and suspending agent similar to animal gelatin. HPMC is used in the development of controlled-delivery medicament.
Thickener for aqueous and non-aqueous systems, clear films with grease resistance, binders, lubricants, steric stabilizer and water retention aid.

Features and Benefits

Dissolves in water, undergoes reversible gelation upon heating, non-ionic, does not complex with ionic species and is surface active and enzyme resistant. Solutions are pseudoplastic.
