TYLOSE MH 60027 P6

TYLOSE MH 60027 P6 provides many of the same benefits as other methylcellulose derivatives, such as the ability to efficiently thicken and provide water retention, These products, offered under the brand, are highly effective additives used to improve the quality and processing characteristics of building materials such as plasters and renders, mortars, tile adhesives, joint compounds and emulsion paints.

These nonionic, water-soluble polymers can thicken, suspend, bind, emulsify, form films, stabilize, disperse, retain water, and provide protective colloid action. They are readily soluble in water and can be used to prepare solutions with a wide range of viscosities. They have outstanding tolerance for dissolved electrolytes.

Safety notes

The data presented above is in accordance with the present state of our knowledge, but doesn’t absolve the user from carefully checking it all immediately on receipt. We reserve the right to alter product constantly within the scope of technical progress or new developments. The recommendations made above should be checked by preliminary trials because of conditions during processing over which we have no control of, especially where other companies' raw materials are also being used. 

The working mechanism of methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose, MHEC (Mw = 2.5 · 105 g/mol, DSmethyl = 1.81, MShydroxyethyl = 0.15) as water retention agent in cement was investigated. First, the hydrocolloid was characterized and its performance as non-ionic water retention agent was determined employing the filter paper test. Also, water sorption and swelling of individual MHEC fibers under conditions of different humidities were monitored by ESEM imaging. Second, its working mechanism was established. It was found that at low dosages, MHEC achieves water retention by intramolecular sorption of water and concomitant swelling while at higher dosages, MHEC molecules agglomerate into large hydrocolloidal microgel particles (d > 1 μm) which effectively plug the pores in the mortar matrix. MHEC association was evidenced by an exponential increase in solution viscosity as concentration rises, a strong increase in the hydrodynamic diameter of solved MHEC molecules, and a noticeable reduction of surface tension.

What is TYLOSE MH 60027 P6?

TYLOSE MH 60027 P6 is also named as methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose (MHEC). It is a white, grayish-white, or yellowish-white granules.
It is a non-ionic cellulose ether derived from the addition of ethylene oxide to methylcellulose. It is produced from a natural renewable polymer such as wood pulp or cotton.

TYLOSE MH 60027 P6 can be used as a highly efficient water retention agent, adhesives and film-forming agent, stabilizer, etc.

It is widely used in different industrial applications such as oil drilling, construction, and building, paint and coating, pharmaceutical, etc.

TYLOSE MH 60027 P6 can be modified according to customers’ requirement and still have its good anti-sagging property and good workability after modification.

Characteristics of TYLOSE MH 60027 P6

TYLOSE MH 60027 P6 has various features. They include: 

1. Appearance

TYLOSE MH 60027 P6 can be either white, pale yellow or yellowish-white, or grayish-white. It is also odorless. 

2. Solubility

TYLOSE MH 60027 P6 is soluble in water (cold or hot water). Although TYLOSE MH 60027 P6 is insoluble in the most organic solvent but soluble in a binary organic solvent and organic solvent water system. 

Its highest concentration depends on the viscosity and its solubility varies with viscosity. The lower the viscosity, the greater the solubility and vice versa. 

3. PH stability

TYLOSE MH 60027 P6 is stable within the range of 3.0 – 11.0 and its viscosity is hardly affected but a PH value out of this range will decrease its viscosity.
4. Metabolism

TYLOSE MH 60027 P6 is an inert substance and its odorless. It is widely used in food and medicine applications due to its inability to undergo metabolism. 

5. Surface Activity

It can be used as a dispersant, protective agent, and emulsifier due to its surface-active function in an aqueous solution. 

6. Mildew Resistance

In the long term storage, TYLOSE MH 60027 P6 is a good mildew resistance due to its good viscosity stability.


Its mildew resistance capacity is higher than the hydroxyethyl cellulose. 

7. Water Retention

TYLOSE MH 60027 P6 serves as an effective water retention agent due to its high viscosity in aqueous solution. 

Its water retention capacity is greater than the methylcellulose.
8. Ash Content

Hot water washing is used in the preparation process of TYLOSE MH 60027 P6, thereby making the ash content very low. 

9. Thermal Gel

When the TYLOSE MH 60027 P6 solution is being heated to a certain temperature, it becomes less transparent with the formation of precipitate and gel but if cooled, it goes back to its original state of solution. 

Common Uses of TYLOSE MH 60027 P6

TYLOSE MH 60027 P6 can be used as:

Ø Adhesive

Ø Protective colloid

Ø Thickening agent

Ø Film-forming agent

Ø Emulsifier

Ø Lubricant

Ø Suspending agent
Industrial Applications of TYLOSE MH 60027 P6

TYLOSE MH 60027 P6 is widely used in different industries, which are:

· Polymerization

· Ceramic

· Cosmetics

· Construction

· Food and Beverages

· Pharmaceuticals

· Paint and Coatings

· Ink and Oil Drilling

TYLOSE MH 60027 P6 as said earlier is a derivative of methylcellulose. It is a non-ionic cellulose ether produced from the raw material of high purity cotton. 

Its odorless characteristics and inability to metabolize makes it widely used in food and medicine applications. 

TYLOSE MH 60027 P6 water retaining capacity and thickening ability makes it suitable for water-based latex painting, ink and oil drilling, construction materials, etc.

As it is widely used in diverse applications, getting TYLOSE MH 60027 P6 from a reputable TYLOSE MH 60027 P6 supplier assures you of the best product for personal or industrial use.
