Bermocoll® EBM 10 000 is a non-ionic, water soluble cellulose ether with enhanced enzyme resistance. It improves the consistency, the stability, and the water retention of water based products.
Methyl ethyl hydroxyethyl cellulose
Bermocoll® EBM 10 000 is used in latex paints for efficient thickening and stabilizing effects, particularly when high storage viscosity combined with low application viscosity is required. Normal dosage is 0.2 - 0.7 % calculated on the total paint weight.Bermocoll® EBM 10 000 is easily dispersed in cold water of pH 7 or less. Bermocoll® EBM 10 000 can form lumps when added to an alkaline liquid. To avoid this, it should be added as a ready stock solution, as a slurry in slight acid water or in an organic solvent, or as a dry mix with other powder materials.The dissolving time after dispersion is influenced by the water pH. Alkaline additives can be used to speed up the dissolving process.
