Today we will share all of you the basic functions of construction grade HPMC in applications, Now let’s talked about the details together. According to the different kinds of dry mix mortar product formulations, different specificafications of construction grade HPMC is recommended.
Construction grade SLEOCHEM HPMC will have good water retention in applications. It could keep enough water for cement and all other additives hydration. It could improve the final bonding strength and the pressure strength. Meanwhile lower the risk of cracking and fall down from the working surface.
Construction grade HPMC could provide specific viscosity of the wet mortar or the solution. It could increase the adhesive strength of wet mortar and provide a good sag-resistence for wet mortar.
(3)Adjust the setting time:
Reasonable viscosity of wet mortar could increase the workability, bigger covering area with the same quality of wet mortar. Construction grade HPMC makes fine bubbles in wet mortar, it could improve the smooth feeling during working.
Construction grade HPMC will have high gelation temperature. It provides a good viscosity stability even in the hot environment.
