It is a non-ionic, water soluble cellulose ether with enhanced enzyme resistance. It improves the consistency, the stability, and the water retention of water based products. Viscosity (7000-9000 @ 1%) with enhanced enzyme resistance.


In the realm of water-based formulations, Bermocoll EBM 8000 emerges as a standout non-ionic, water-soluble cellulose ether. Designed with enhanced enzyme resistance, it is the key to achieving superior consistency, stability, and water retention—a triple threat that transforms your products.

The Power of Enzyme Resistance

What sets Bermocoll EBM 8000 apart is its remarkable resistance to enzymes, making it an ideal choice for water-based products that need to stand the test of time. Whether it’s in latex paints, cosmetics, or personal care formulations, its ability to maintain stability and consistency is unmatched.

Latex Paints Perfected

In the world of latex paints, Bermocoll EBM 8000 takes center stage. It serves as a crucial additive, offering thickening and stabilizing effects that are especially valuable when you require high storage viscosity combined with low application viscosity. The recommended dosage typically ranges from 0.2% to 0.7%, calculated based on the total paint weight.

Dispersion Made Easy

Bermocoll EBM 8000’s ease of dispersion sets it apart. It readily disperses in cold water with a pH of 7 or less. However, caution is advised when adding it to alkaline liquids, as lumps may form. To avoid this, consider adding it as a ready stock solution, as a slurry in slightly acidic water, in an organic solvent, or as a dry mix with other powder materials. The dissolution time post-dispersion can be influenced by the water’s pH, and alkaline additives can expedite the process.

Harnessing the Power of Hydroxyethyl Cellulose

At its core, Bermocoll EBM 8000 contains hydroxyethyl cellulose, a versatile gelling and thickening agent derived from cellulose. Its applications span the cosmetic industry, where it plays a pivotal role in achieving crystal-clear gel products and thickening the aqueous phase of cosmetic emulsions. It’s also a trusted ingredient in shampoos, body washes, and shower gels, where efficient thickening is essential.

Unlock the Potential

It is more than an additive; it’s a catalyst for excellence. Whether you’re perfecting latex paints or formulating cosmetics, it empowers you to achieve consistency, stability, and water retention that exceed industry standards.

Experience the transformation that Bermocoll EBM 8000 offers—an innovation that brings precision and durability to water-based products, setting new standards for quality and performance.
