In the building materials industry, cellulose ethers have an extremely wide range of uses. The amount is large and they can serve as retarders, water-retaining agents, thickeners and binders. Cellulose ethers play important roles in ordinary dry mortar, efficient exterior wall insulation mortar, self-leveling mortar, dry plaster adhesives, dry mortar for tile adhesive, high-performance construction.. read more →

Methyl cellulose and hydroxy ethyl cellulose can be used as stabilizers, thickeners and water-retaining agents in latex paints. In addition, they can also be used as dispersants, tackifiers, and film-forming agents in colored cement coatings. In latex paints, the addition of cellulose ethers with suitable specifications and viscosity can improve the construction performance of latex.. read more →

Cellulose is the most abundant renewable resource in nature, and billions of tons can be produced by photosynthesis annually. In recent years, as oil and coal reserves decline, the importance of this renewable resource—cellulose has been increasingly significant. Especially today, the environmental pollution problems have become increasingly prominent, forcing people to refocus on this renewable.. 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 →

With the improvement of people’s living standards and the enhanced awareness of living environment health and safety, the whole society is calling for green building materials. Due to the advantages of being physically harmless and without polluting the environment, the water-soluble cellulose ether has become the first choice to replace the conventional harmful construction adhesives… read more →

Characteristics of Cellulose ethers (1). Product Status: powdery or granular. (2). State of Charge: non-ionic state and anionic state Cellulose ethers in non-ionic state have compatibility with aqueous solutions of other additives, including: 1) Methyl cellulose (MC) 2) Hydroxy ethyl methyl cellulose (HEMC) 3) Hydroxy propyl methyl cellulose (HPMC) 4) Hydroxy ethyl cellulose (HEC) 5).. read more →

The cellulose ether solution is affected by cellulase enzymes and microorganisms. Enzymes first attack unsubstituted anhydroglucose units, which causes the hydrolysis scission of macromolecular chain and leads to reduction in viscosity of products. Ether substituents may play a protective role in the main chain of cellulose. Therefore, the stability of cellulose ether will be improved.. read more →

In the pharmaceutical industry, Microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) is mainly used for two aspects. One is to use the property of easily forming gels in water with vigorous stirring for preparing paste and suspension drugs. The other is to use its molding action for excipients of pharmaceutical tableting. Methyl cellulose (MC) is a methyl ether of.. 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 →
