Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) For Cement Render&Plaster

Cement based render(plaster/mortar) is the mixture of suitable sand, cement and water which is generally applied to masonry interiors and exterior to smooth wall surface. HPMC plays a key role in cement based render(plaster/mortar) to achieve the excellent performance of water retention, open time, workability, crack resistance, sag resistance, etc.
