Bermocoll

Bermocoll is a group of nonionic cellulose ethers which are delivered in the form of a whitish free-flowing powder of different particle sizes and it is almost odourless.

Bermocoll products have been produced for more than 50 years, and today sold in more than 80 countries.

Bermocoll products are manufactured in three main types:

  • EHEC, ethyl hydroxyethyl cellulose, (E and EBS)

  • MEHEC, methyl ethyl hydroxyethyl cellulose, (M, EM and EBM)

  • HM-EHEC, hydrophobical modified ethyl hydroxyethyl cellulose, (EHM)

Bermocoll products are based on cellulose, coming from wood or cotton. Our products are water soluble, forming colloidal solutions and are used in a variety of industrial applications, but mainly in water-based paints and in building products. More information about these applications and the use of  Bermocoll products can be found in separate brochures.

Bermocoll products act as:

  • Thickening agent

  • Stabilizing agent

  • Water retaining agent

  • Dispersing agent

  • Binding agent

  • Protective colloid

  • Emulsion and foam stabilizer

  • Film forming agent

Bermocoll products are normally not soluble in organic solvents, but in a wide range of mixtures of polar solvents and water.
