CELLOSIZE™ QP-4400H Hydroxyethyl Cellulose

Lower in molecular weight, offers moderate thickening efficiency.

Thickener delivering benefits across a broad range of industries

CELLOSIZE™ QP-4400H, from the CELLOSIZE™ hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC) collection, is a medium molecular weight cellulosic polymer and can be used as a general purpose thickener in personal care and home care formulations and has broad compatibility.

CELLOSIZE™ QP-4400H is an invaluable ingredient in many commercial paint products while also delivering benefits across many more industries like agriculture, construction, cosmetics, oil, textile, household care, and cosmetics. The polymer is versatile across these diverse industries due to its impressive viscosity range, and ability to thicken, bind, emulsify, suspend and stabilize film-forming agents. CELLOSIZE™ QP 4400H HEC is one of Dow’s most popular general-purpose HEC thickeners.

In household and commercial paint formulations, CELLOSIZE™ HEC offers ease of solution across a wide pH range, while enhancing pigmentation and improving color for long-lasting satisfaction. The nonionic CELLOSIZE™ QP 4400H HEC is useful as a standard thickening application with broad compatibility. The premium polymer delivers a smooth flow and spotless leveling characteristics to provide desirable results after one or several coats of paint, and its solubility in water makes it a key ingredient to many shampoos, body washes, conditioners, hair dyes and skin cleansers.
