Hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose (HPMC) is a non-ionic cellulose ether. It is odorless, tasteless, off white powder, can be dissolved in water and forms transparent viscous solution. HPMC is widely used in building materials, ceramic extrusions, personal-care products and many other fields, It will improve your products in water retention, bonding ability, thickening effects, dispersion rate and suspension etc.
Improves workability and processing effect of cement-based and ceramic-based extrusions by its lubrication.
Matecel® remains stable in the range of pH 3.0~11.0.
The solubility of Matecel® can largely increase in the presence of alkali environment.
Compatible with other ionic and non-ionic additives in aqueous solutions while providing a stable combination when dissolved in water.
Large water demand of Matecel® can make your materials yield higher volume of outputs, and thus save your cost.
Matecel® Increases viscosity of liquids in daily-chemical products and personal care products
Enhances dispersion rate suspension effect and the stability of suspension systems, including concrete, mortar, EIFS system.
Avoid quick water-loss during the drying of constructions, enhance water retention, ensure sufficient hydration time for cement-based, lime-based and gypsum-based materials.
Matecel® prolongs the open time during application, give more time for correction.
