Methocel A15C is a methylcellulose thickener. It performs many functions simultaneously including thickening, binding, water retention and film forming. The A15C grade has a viscosity range from 1,200 to 1,800 cP.
Methocel A15C is a water-soluble polymer derived from cellulose. Methocel is a high purity, non-ionic cellulose ether, and performs as a rheology modifier and functions as a suspending aid, stabilizer, surfactants, lubricants, protective colloids, and emulsifiers.
