Thickening organic solvents is a difficult task. Standard cellulose ethers either do not work well or work only in very few organic solvents or in systems with high water content. The currently available thickeners for organic solvents have serious drawbacks such as severe limitations in regard to the appropriate solvents, poor performance and complicated processing.


As a solution to these problems SE Tylose has developed Tylose® PSO 810001, a methyl hydroxypropyl cellulose (MHPC) which acts as a thickener for a much broader range of organic solvents.


Tylose PSO 810001 performs exceedingly well in most polar organic solvents, organic solvent mixtures and organic solvent/water systems. Fields of application include paint strippers, adhesives and fuel pastes.
