Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose is a non-ionic cellulose ether made through a series of chemical processes, with the natural polymer cellulose as the raw material. It is odorless, tasteless and non-toxic white powder. In cold water, it swells into a clear or slightly turbid colloidal solution. Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose and Methylcellulose can be used in building materials, coating.. read more →

Differences between HPS and HPMC   HPS (short for hydroxypropyl starch ether) is unfamiliar to many people, and thought to be a little different from common starch, but that’s not the case. HPS has a very small amount used in mortar products, and a very low addition amount enables to achieve very good quality effects… read more →

There are many classifications of Hydroxypropylmethylcellulose. According to its uses, Sidley Chemical Co.,Ltd classifies HPMC into two categories, instant soluble and slowly soluble. Slowly soluble HPMC, also known as hot-water soluble HPMC, is also a kind of great used cellulose ether in dry-mixed mortar.   The differences and characteristics between HPMC and common HPMC ethers.. read more →

The density of building mortar refers to the mass density of a certain proportion of uniformly mixed and stirred cementitious materials, sand and water. As for the component materials of mortar, their respective density is as follows: the apparent density of lime putty (1350kg/m³) > the bulk density of cement (1280kg/m³) > density of water.. read more →

The material composition of ceramic tile adhesive mortar generally includes: ①Cement: inorganic cementing material; ②Redispersible latex powder: enhancing the bonding strength for all substrates (especially non-porous substrates and large-size tiles; or pasted on the smooth surface and unstable substrates), increasing the tensile strength, reducing the elastic modulus, increasing the water retention, improving the workability, and.. read more →

The building gypsum is the main raw material that guarantees the bond strength of adhesive plaster, and should meet the requirements of national standard GB / T 9776-2008.   As for the setting time of building gypsum, the standard requires that the initial setting be greater than 6min and that the final setting be less.. read more →

The cellulose ether can be used as the water-retaining agent. The water retention effects of cellulose ether can prevent the substrate from absorbing moisture too much and too fast, and can prevent the evaporation of water, in order to ensure sufficient water during hydration of cement. Generally speaking, the water-holding capacity of cement slurry will.. read more →

As an additive for cement mortar, the cellulose ether usually has an addition amount not more than 2% of cement mass. For the study on cellulose ether, there has been a long history of research abroad. For example, DOW had successfully developed and marketed as early as 1938. First, the higher viscosity the cellulose ether.. read more →

In the pharmaceutical industry, hydroxy propyl methyl cellulose (HPMC) can act as pharmaceutical excipients. It is widely used in oral drugs such as matrix controlled-release and sustained-release preparations as the release-blocking material to regulate the drug release, or as sustained-release agents, pellets and capsules of coating materials. The most widely used are dimethyl carboxymethyl cellulose.. read more →

In the formulations of building materials, the dosage of cellulose ether is only 0.1% to 1%. But it plays an irreplaceable role. Various applications of cellulose ether in building materials will be introduced as follows. 1. Latex and Latex Building Materials Such cellulose derivatives as MC, CMC, HEC and HPMC can be used in the.. read more →
