HPMC (Hydroxpropyl Methylcellulose)

HPMC (Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose) is a non-ionic, water-soluble polymer derived from cellulose. It is produced by modifying cellulose through the addition of hydroxypropyl and methyl groups. HPMC is widely used in numerous industries for its thickening, binding, film-forming, and suspension properties.
