The manufacturing of those hand sanitizers, soaps and detergents, requires a set of ingredients that once combined brings one of the best tools to combat not only bacterial growth, but as well as stopping virus spread to yourself or anybody else. This way we can control contamination of infectious disease outbreaks such as the COVID-19.
It should not only clean but is also essential to fight viruses and infectious diseases. Therefore, the manufacturing of kitchen cleaners, bathroom & toilet cleaners, floor cleaners, hard surface cleaners etc., has an important role in diminishing possible further contaminations.
Methocel™, Polyox™, Cellosize™ and Glycolic Acid™ support the creation of all those products as a primordial ingredient from its chemical composition, by thickening, binding, stabilizing, acting as a rheology modifier to providing a soft feel and enhancing stability to its final products.
WHAT IS METHOCEL™?
METHOCEL™ is a group of water-soluble/solvent soluble, cellulose ether polymers commonly known as thickeners, binders and rheology modifiers. Methocel™ grades are based on Methylcellulose (MC), which is only water soluble and Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose (HPMC), which is also water/solvent soluble. They are derived from natural cellulose sources. METHOCEL™ offers a comprehensive range of functionalities and properties that provides custom solutions to household and industrial applications. Specifically Methocel 311 grade has a unique property to thicken Isopropyl alcohol and Ethanol based hand sanitizers.
WHAT IS CELLOSIZE™?
Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (HEC) is a non-ionic, water-soluble polymers can thicken, suspend, bind, emulsify, form films, stabilize, disperse, retain water and provide protective colloid action. They are readily soluble in water and can be used to prepare solutions with a wide range of viscosities. They have outstanding tolerance for dissolved electrolytes.
WHAT IS POLYOX™?
POLYOX™ Water Soluble Resins are widely used in cleaners and detergents to enhance stability and appearance over time. They serve as thickeners, binders, stabilizers, and protective colloids. It is vitally important that the end user of these cleaners and degreasers have the same visual and tactile experience every time they use the product so that their perception of the product’s performance is maintained.
WHAT IS GLYCOLIC ACID?
The smallest of alpha-hydroxy acids can be used in a wide variety of cleaning and industrial applications. It is biodegradable, provides excellent anti-microbial efficacy and offers low corrosivity and excellent metal chelating properties.
