WG-8 is a very fine, free flowing Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (HEC). When added to water as a viscosifying agent, WG-8 will maintain a low viscosity until the pH is raised above 8. Once the pH is raised, WG-8 rapidly gains viscosity allowing for use in several applications. The gel is broken using conventional oxidizers and unlike other polymers, HEC forms little to no insoluble residues upon breaking.
