ETHOCEL™ Standard 10 Premium is a water-insoluble ethyl cellulose polymer that can be used in many applications including ceramics, coatings, inks, conductive pastes, and hot melt adhesives. It carries expanded approvals for pharmaceutical applications and as such can be used in regulated industries. ETHOCEL™ Standard 10 Premium offers excellent binding strength and burns out very clean. This is crucial for applications that require good green strength but need to be contamination free like conductive pastes for screen printed circuits. Additionally, when it is added to inks and coatings it works as a film former and helps to improve toughness, flexibility, and gloss. ETHOCEL™ Standard 10 Premium can be easily dissolved in hot polymers, plasticizers, and waxes to provide added toughness, flexibility, and moisture resistance to hot melt adhesives and heat seal coatings.
