Methyl Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (MHEC) Powder Industrial Grade for Tile Adhesive

Methyl Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (MHEC) powder, also known as Hydroxyethyl Methyl Cellulose, is a commonly used industrial grade additive in tile adhesives . It’s a white or yellowish-white, odorless powder that improves the properties and performance of the adhesive.

Here are some of the benefits of using MHEC powder in tile adhesives:

  • Enhanced adhesion and water retention: MHEC helps the adhesive better adhere to tiles and substrates, and retain water, which is crucial for proper curing and strong bond formation.
  • Improved workability: MHEC makes the adhesive more workable and easier to spread, reducing the effort required and improving tiling efficiency.
  • Extended open time: MHEC allows for a longer open time, meaning the adhesive remains usable for a longer period before drying out. This is particularly beneficial for large tiling projects or with less experienced tilers.
  • Reduced slippage: MHEC helps prevent tiles from slipping after they are applied, which is important for vertical applications.
  • Smoother finish: MHEC can help control air entrapment in the adhesive, leading to a smoother tile finish.
