EC N-grade

Ethylcellulose polymers for industrial applications (low substitution grade)

Description

Ethylcellulose (EC) polymers are cellulose ethers that are derived from natural wood or other cellulosic materials, with a narrow specification and uniform ethoxyl functionality. Ethylcellulose polymers are water-insoluble thermoplastic polymers; they can therefore be employed for a wide variety of functions. They are used for rheology modification, film formation, binding, water barriers, and as time-release agents.
