Cellulose ether HEMC LH50M Hydroxyethyl Metyl Cellulose 39123900 for Gypsum/Cement Based Drymix Morar

short description:

Methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose (MHEC) is a kind of methyl cellulose derivative which is made from natural high polymer cellulose. It is widely used in many different industries as water retention agent, thickener, adhesive agent and dispersant etc. It could dissolve in water and form a clear solution with specific viscosity.

In water-based coatings, HEMC can play a role in thickening and viscosity control, improving the flowability and coating performance of the coating, making it easy to apply and apply. In building materials, MHEC thickener is commonly used in products such as dry mixed mortar, cement mortar, ceramic tile adhesive, etc. It can increase its adhesion, improve flowability, and improve the water resistance and durability of the material.
