Chemical Cellulose Ether HPMC Powder for Cement Based Tile Mortars

Chemical Cellulose Ether HPMC Powder for Cement Based Tile Mortars, also known as hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC), is a white, odorless, and tasteless powder derived from cellulose, a natural polymer found in plants. It is a versatile material with a wide range of applications in the construction industry, including as a thickener, water retainer, and dispersant in cement-based tile mortars.

Benefits of using HPMC in cement-based tile mortars:

  • Improved workability: HPMC thickens the mortar, making it easier to apply and spread evenly. This is especially beneficial for vertical surfaces, where the mortar needs to stay in place without sagging.
  • Enhanced water retention: HPMC helps the mortar retain water, which is essential for proper hydration of the cement and prevents the mortar from drying out too quickly. This can help to prevent cracking and ensure a strong bond between the tile and the substrate.
  • Reduced shrinkage: HPMC can help to reduce shrinkage of the mortar, which can also help to prevent cracking.
  • Improvedsag resistance: HPMC can help to improve the sag resistance of the mortar, which is important for applications where the mortar needs to be applied overhead.
