Klucel™ hydroxypropylcellulose

Chemistry: Cellulosics

Hydroxypropyl cellulose products are very special in their properties. Being soluble both in water and polar organic solvents it offers very large choice of solvents or solvent combinations to be used in. This opens a lot of application fields from die pressing over slip and tape casting and, due to Its thermoplastic character, makes it an excellent chemistry to be used in injection molding processes, where the binder melts/liquifies upon temperature increase, flows nicely and upon cooling supports the often complex ceramic parts to stay in shape. Some examples for injection molding applications are bio-ceramics & aerospace parts such as turbine blades, but there are many more. Klucel™ Hydroxypropyl cellulose also leads to very flexible films and reduces brittleness.

Klucel™ products are available in:

  • low to very high molecular weight
  • very fine to coarse particle size
