ETHOCEL™ Standard 10 Industrial is a water-insoluble ethyl cellulose polymer that is used primarily in specialty coatings, inks, ceramics, and electronics applications. It is a low molecular weight polymer and can be used in high solids coatings and inks. ETHOCEL™ Standard 10 Industrial is an excellent binder in applications that require clean burn out and excellent green strength like ceramics and conductive pastes for photovoltaic cells. It also can be used to improve toughness, flexibility, and gloss when added to printing inks and specialty coatings. ETHOCEL™ Standard 10 Industrial is soluble in many of the common solvents used in gravure and flexographic ink and can be used as a binder to improve printability onto difficult substrates such as plastic and glass. Because it is water insoluble ETHOCEL™ Standard 10 Industrial provides excellent resistance to moisture when used as a film former in paper coatings and hot melt adhesives. ETHOCEL™ Standard 10 Industrial is soluble in many common solvents including most monohydric alcohols, ketones, ethers, and acetates. It can also be easily dissolved in most plasticizers, waxes, and hot polymers.
