Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose (HPMC) for Tile Adhesive

Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose (HPMC) for Tile Adhesive

Tile adhesive is a new type of modern decorative material used to paste decorative materials such as ceramic tiles, face tiles, floor tiles and so on. There are many kinds of additives in tile adhesive, but usually adding cellulose ether additives to tile adhesive can improve water retention, thickening effect and open time.

HPMC for tile adhesive features:
* Improve thermal stability Reduce cement hydration delay
* Excellent slip resistance Improves rheology of plaster
* Good consistency, crack resistance, shrinkage resistance, good machinability
* Tile adhesive HPMC has good water retention, greatly improves the water retention capacity, and inhibits a large amount of water loss from super absorbent tiles and substrates.
* Enough water in the hardened state of the cement, increasing the bond strength and further improving the slip resistance of the mortar;
