HPMC(Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose)

HPMC(Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose)

CAS NO.: 9004-65-3 HS CODE: 3912900000 EINECS No.:618-389-6

HPMC is made by natural high polymer cellulose. It's odorless, tasteless and non-toxic white powder, which can be dissolved in cold water to form a transparent viscous solution.

Physical And Chemical Propertices

HPMC(Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose)

Application Fields of HPMC

1.Construction Industry : mortar, ceramic tile adhesive, waterproof material,etc.

2.Pharmaceutical Industry : thickener for pill, dis-solvent and controlled release formulation.

3.Food Industry : vegetable protein drink, dairy product, candy etc.

4.Cosmetics Industry : emulsifier, thickener and humectant.

Characteristic of hydroxypropyl Methyl cellulose

1. The level of water retention is one of the most important indicators of the quality of HPMC, especially in the cement mortar and gypsum-based products for thin-layer construction.

2. Enhance the water retention, it can effectively prevent the phenomenon of rapid drying and insufficient hydration, which can cause a decrease in strength and cracking.

3. Strong bonding ability, good sag resistance.

4. Modified cellulose ether has an excellent thickening effect. Can provide better bond strength, fluidity, structural stability and workability to the material if added to the dry mortar.

5. In mortar with a high PH value, it has obvious promotion effect on fast dissolution, and usually can be completely dissolved in a few minutes.

6.Mortar with good flow-ability and suitable lead into air.

The role of HPMC in mortar

In order to coagulation cementitious materials, for example cement and gypsum product need water to hydrate. The correct addition of HPMC can keep the moisture in the mortar for a long enough period of time, enables the setting and hardening of the cementitious material to continue.

What determines the amount of HPMC added to obtain enough water retention ability?

1. Absorption at the substrate

2. Composition of mortar

3. Layer thickness of mortar

4. Water requirement for mortar

5. Setting time of cementitious material

The relationship between water retention rate of cellulose ether and mortar temperature.

●The change in temperature will seriously affect the water retention of common cellulose ether, but water retention at high temperatures can be effectively solved by using the excellent HPMC series. It ensures that the cementitious material has a enough time to gradually crystallize and harden with water.



Relationship between water retention rate and viscosity of cellulose ether

●When the viscosity of cellulose ether rises, the water retention rate also rises.

●When the viscosity reaches a certain height, Increase smoothly in water retention.


Relationship between water retention rate and volume of addition

●With increase in additive amount of water retention rate increased. When the volume of addition further increases, the trend of increasing water retention rate slows down.
