Hydroxypropyl Cellulose

Hydroxypropyl Cellulose


CheSilo Hydroxypropyl Cellulose


Hydroxypropylcellulose (HPC) is a nonionic water-soluble cellulose ether with a remarkable combination of properties . It combines organic 

solvent solubility, thermoplasticity, and surface activity with the aqueous thickening and stabilizing properties characteristic of other

water-soluble cellulose polymers available . HPC films are flexible without plasticizers and non-tacky at high humidity .

Hydroxypropylcellulose(HPC) is manufactured by reacting alkali cellulose with propylene oxide at elevated temperatures and pressures .


The propylene oxide can be substituted on the cellulose through an ether linkage at the three reactive hydroxyls present on each 

anhydroglucose monomer unit of the cellulose chain .

An idealized structure for a portion of a hydroxypropylcellulose molecule with a molar substitution (MS) of 3 .0.


Package and storage:

25KG/fiber drum with PE-liner;

Keep it in a cool and dry place away from heat, away from moisture and not shipment together of alkali or acid.
