Methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose (MH) Application: for reversible, flexible bondings and to glue paper; for gluing and fixing products sensible to water, powder, water-soluble, non ionic, normally etherified, low thickening effect, good bonding qualities, good temperature stability
Methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose. Offers very high water retention, low gloss, low pigment compatibility, low pseudoplasticity, moderate thickening effect, and moderate wet scrub resistance. Exhibits good anti-spattering. Used for paint applications like interior paints, solid paints, exterior paints, powder paints, cement paints, glazes, distempers, and emulsion based plasters.
Methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose. Acts as a rheology modifier. Offers low gloss, pigment compatibility and moderate thickening effect as well as very high water retention, good anti-spattering, low pseudoplasticity and moderate wet scrub resistance. Shows bio stability. Used in emulsion based tile adhesives.
The laying of tiles utilizing the thin bed process and the processing of mortars in continuously working plastering machines is only possible with the use of Tylose® MH 6000 YP4
In building material systems Tylose® MH 6000 YP4 controls the water retention and the consistency, whilst at the same time Tylose® MH 6000 YP4 products increase the homogeneity and stability of all types of mortar.
Cement tile adhesives have to be easy to trowel. They must provide long embedding time, high slip resistance and sufficient adhesion strength. These properties can be influenced by Tylose® MH 6000 YP4. Adhesives for block laying are used to build up walls of aerated concrete blocks, sand-lime bricks or standard bricks. EIFS adhesives ensure an excellent bond between substrate and insulating boards. Tylose® MH 6000 YP4 improves the workability of EIFS adhesives and increases both adhesion and sag resistance.
Application of paint should be smooth and easy, whilst spatter must be kept to a minimum. To achieve these attributes only a small amount of Tylose® MH 6000 YP4 is necessary. Depending on the system being used, a concentration of 0.2 % - 0.5 % is typically required. The choice of Tylose® MH 6000 YP4 types depends on the application and requirements. The most commonly used Tylose® MH 6000 YP4 types in coating materials are Tylose HS and Tylose H.
Tylose® MH 6000 YP4 is an indispensable additive for the plastification of ceramic extrusion mixes, especially for the extrusion of technical ceramics, used in the automotive and chemical industry. Typical examples are honeycomb catalyst substrates and particle filters for exhaust gas after-treatment applications. Tylose® MH 6000 YP4 shows fast hydration and swelling and unfolds its plastification and water retention effects in a highly efficient way. With the combination of high thermal stability, high green strength and low fibre content, Tylose® MH 6000 YP4 enables high extrusion rates, even with ultra-thin wall substrates. In the drying process Tylose® MH 6000 YP4 prevents cracks via its binding effect, additionally supported by its thermal gelation capabilities.
The rheology modifying effects of Tylose® MH 6000 YP4 prevent sedimentation of solids as well as supporting good flowability of the glazing slips, ensuring a uniform coating of ceramic bodies. In a dry state, Tylose® MH 6000 YP4 strengthens the capability of the glaze film to bind to the ceramic surface, making it smooth and stable.
Tylose® MH 6000 YP4 prevents sedimentation in spray drying slips and acts as rheology modifier. It contributes to an advantageous particle size distribution of the dried granules and fast filling of pressing moulds. In combination with plasticising and other additives, it provides high green strength and shows excellent debinding behaviour.
In emulsion and suspension polymerisation processes, efficiency combined with a reliable high quality of the resulting product is indispensable. Tylose® MH 6000 YP4  acts as highly effective protective colloids in these processes and facilitates outstanding results.
Tylose® MH 6000 YP4 is used in suspension and emulsion polymerisation processes as highly effective protective colloid. It influences important properties of the resulting polymer, such as particle size and porosity.
Suspension polymerisation is widely used in the production of polyvinyl chloride and expandable polystyrene in large scale. Tylose® MH 6000 YP4 acts as protective colloid, stabilising the suspension during the process and adjusting the particle size distribution and porosity of the resulting polymer particles. 
The multitude of existing hair care and styling products reduce the appearance of damaged hair and at the same time, achieve the effects desired by the consumer. The use of a hair conditioner after shampooing makes the hair easier to comb and increases the bounce of the hair.
Shampoo is generally made by combining a surfactant, often sodium lauryl sulphate and/or sodium laureth sulphate with a co-surfactant, typically cocamidopropyl betaine. Sulfate free shampoos on amino acid surfactant basis, like cocoyl glycinate, cocoyl glutamate etc., are well known in the market. Other ingredients are used to ease the rinsing or to repair the damage of the hair. Many shampoos are pearlescent.
Hair gel is a hairstyling product that is used to stiffen hair into a particular hairstyle. The main types of hair gels used today range from gels, liquid sprays, pomades and waxes to creams and serums.
The most important group of products in the field of oral/dental hygiene is toothpastes. There is a multitude of different products which orient themselves towards specific target groups (children, adolescents, adults) or specific indications e.g. sensitive teeth and gums.
Body lotions are low to medium viscosity preparations which are applied to skin to smooth, re-hydrate and soften it. Most lotions are oil-in-water emulsions.
Deodorants are substances applied to the body to act against body odour caused by bacterial growth. A sub-group of deodorants, antiperspirants, affect odour as well as prevent sweating. Deodorants combined with antiperspirant agents frequently include aluminium compounds such as aluminium chloride or chlorine hydrate.
Mascara is a cosmetic product used to colour, lengthen and accentuate the eyelashes. The liquid pigment is applied onto the eyelashes in order to let the eyes appear bigger and more expressive.
Decorative cosmetics (make-up) serve to accentuate the personal attractiveness and to conceal blemishes, such as wrinkles or redness.
There are a multitude of products, such as liquid make-ups, particularly oil-free products where Tylose® MH 6000 YP4 stabilises the solids in water.
Shaving with a razor normally requires the use of a pre-shave product such as foam or gel. These shaving products are intended to smooth the skin which allows a gentler shave.
Viscous formulas or gel cleaners are particularly useful for cleaning vertical surfaces. 
Gel cleaners also tend to be chosen for applications where the agent will be left to work for an extended period of time. Tylose® MH 6000 YP4 is ideal for thickening and adjusting the rheology of water-based, liquid cleaners with a pH of 4 to 11. The desired look and consistency for cleaning agents can be achieved by using Tylose® MH 6000 YP4.
Tylose can also be used as a thickener to adjust the rheology of liquid detergents, especially in products designed for delicate textiles.
Liquid detergents are mainly made up of surfactants such as alkylbenzene sulfonates, but also contain water softeners and enzymes. Depending on the type of detergent, further ingredients such as bleach are used in the formulation.
Viscous formulas or gel cleaners are particularly useful for cleaning vertical surfaces. Gel cleaners also tend to be chosen for applications where the agent will be left to work for an extended period of time. For neutral cleaners (pH 6-8), Tylose® MH 6000 YP4 is ideal for thickening and adjusting the rheology.
Toilet cleaners are used to remove limescale and further deposits. Most products are offered as gels. WC-gels include acids, surfactants, thickeners and fragrance.
Washing up liquids for hand application are adjusted to neutral or slightly acidic pH by citric acid. The main component is a highly foaming surfactant which has low skin irritation.
