Hand sanitizer is a daily chemical product frequently used in daily life. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become popular among the public. Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose HPMC, an important raw material in sanitizing gel, is also increasingly favored by biochemical reagent manufacturers.

Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose HPMC is used in hand sanitizing gels mainly because of its thickening, viscosity and permeability. Most people prefer gels to hand sanitizers. Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose HPMC can turn solutions into gels and gels are more durable and easier to use than liquids. The concentration of Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose HPMC is also basically in the range of 0.2%-0.5%. Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose HPMC can make liquid systems have special yield values and rheological properties. Only a very low concentration can make some insoluble additives (particles, oil droplets, etc.) to achieve permanent suspension.

It is because of its strong suspension ability that Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose HPMC is widely used. In addition, Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose HPMC used in hand sanitizing gel can achieve a good transparent effect. After neutralization and ionization of carboxyl group, due to mutual repulsion of negative charge, the molecular chain is dispersed and extended, showing great expansion and viscosity. Such characteristics undoubtedly make Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose HPMC become one of the important raw materials for hand sanitizing.

The most significant feature of the use of hands-free disinfection gel is that it avoids repeated washing and can not be washed with water, but can also effectively achieve the inhibition and removal of hand bacteria. Especially in the summer, bacterial breeding speed increases, especially intestinal pathogens, pyogenic cocci, yeast and other bacteria. The main antibacterial ingredient in hand sanitizer gels is ethanol, other antibacterial agents are available if they are effective, and some are guanidine. The content of bacteriostatic agent is a few hundredths of a percent commonly, with respect to 23% at most, and the content of all kinds of bacteriostatic agent also has clear requirements in national standard.

As new epidemic spread both at home and abroad, disinfection sterilization products in short supply in a very short time, especially when going out for sterilization of hand washing your hands free fluid, was crazy to rob, Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose HPMC as one of the ingredients of liquid soap free, a lot of manufacturer for the price increase, part of the manufacturer because too many orders cannot normal supply, However, As one of the manufacturers of Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose HPMC products, KIMA can not only guarantee the normal supply of products, but also maintain the price does not rise, which is the real manufacturer of conscience.
