Top 4 Benefits of Adding HPMC for Paints& Coating

1. HPMC powder can help you extend the paint’s shelf life by preventing solid precipitation.


2. High biological stability. It can be compatible with other paints formula ingredients.


3. Rapid dissolution without lumps. HPMC aids in simplifying the mixing process. It can give you a quicker and more convenient mixing without clumping.


4. Generates favorable flow properties. Ensuring superior surface smoothness and preventing paint sagging.


5. Increases the viscosity of paint strippers. Preventing them from running off the surface of the workpiece.

What is the role of HPMC in coating?

HPMC is also called Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose. It plays a crucial role in coatings as a versatile additive. As a critical component in the coating industry, HPMC contributes to the development of paints with improved texture, coverage, and efficacy. Its primary functions include enhancing viscosity, improving water retention, and providing good abrasion resistance.


Other roles of HPMC in paints and coatings:


1. HPMC acts as a thickener and stabilizer in coating formulations. Contributing to the consistency and workability of paint.

2. Promotes adhesion to various surfaces.

3. Extended open time.

4. Preventing sagging or dripping during application.

5. The use of HPMC in coatings is particularly beneficial due to its compatibility with a wide range of formulation components.

Could we use Linkwor, HPMC -02X (Non surface treated HPMC) for coating and painting?

Unfortunately, Linkwor HPMC-02X cannot be used for coating and painting applications. It is not surface-treated HPMC. We recommend using WOTAIchem HPMC160KS for coating applications. We also support OEM cellulose ethers to meet your specific needs. HEC is also recommended for your paint formula.
