Emcell SLX C1209 (HEC) which is used to support water-holding and as a rheology modifier in water-based paints, is a water-soluble polymer with a high degree of viscosity. It is in a class that has biostability in solution against enzymatic attack. EMCELL C 1209 is widely used for water-based paints. Colored pigments provide good pseudoplastic fluidity and wide compatibility with emulsion polymers, surfactants, emulsifiers, defoamers and preservatives. To avoid lump formations that may occur faster than optimal dissolution rate, EMCELL SLX C 1209 is properly processed to achieve optimum hydration time for application.
Emcell C 1209 is packaged in 25Kg Net weight paper sacks with a surface made of polyethylene inside. They are loaded on pallets, with a net of 1000 kg in 40 sacks. Depending on the installation, pallets can also be loaded with 1250-1500 KG. Empty paper sacks can be recycled. Unopened sacks can be stored for several years. EMCELL C 1209 can last for a long time provided it is kept at room temperature and dry in closed containers or original package. For products with high viscosity, a decrease in viscosity can be observed for products stored for a long time (more than 1 year). Once the package is opened, it must be closed off again and tightly tied. In case of excessive exposure, the powder can cause a mechanical disturbance on the skin or in the eye. In case of use under normal conditions, it does not cause significant harm to health. The product is organic polymers that can be ignited if heat and oxygen are present in the environment. If the increase of powder by water-jet is avoided, fire can be extinguished by known methods.
