Hydroxypropyl MethylCellulose

Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose
Other Name: Cellulose hydroxy propyl methyl ether; Hypromellose, Cellulose, 2-hydroxypropyl Methyl ether. Cellulose hydroxypropyl methyl ether Hyprolose;


Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose (HPMC) is also named as MHPC, are types of non-ionic cellulose ether, which are a powder of white to off-white color, that function as a thickener, binder, film-former, surfactant, protective colloid, lubricant, emulsifier, and suspension and water retention aid. In addition, these types of cellulose ethers exhibit properties of thermal gelation, metabolic inertness, enzyme resistance, low odor and taste, and pH stability. HPMC are widely used in construction,pharmaceutical,food,cosmetic,detergent,paints,textiles etc.We can provide the general grade HPMC, we also designed the modified HPMC according to customer requirements. After modified, we can get the product which have long open time, good anti-sagging,good workability etc.


Tile Adhesive
1,Good water retention:  it can prolonged opening time , to make tiling more efficient
2,Improved adhesion and sliding resistance especially for heavy tiles
3,Better work-ability: lubricity and plasticity of plaster is ensured, mortar can be applied easier and quicker

Cement Based Plaster

1,Easy dry mix formulation due to cold water solubility: lump formation can be easily avoided, ideal for heavy tiles.
2,Good water retention: prevention of fluid loss to the substrates, the appropriate water content is kept in mixture which guarantees longer concreting time
3,Increased water demand: increased open time, expanded spry area and more economical formulation
4,Easier spreading and improved sagging resistance due to improved consistency

Exterior Heat Insulation System ( EIFS )

1,Improved adhesion
2,Good wetting ability for EPS board and substrate
3,Reduced air entrainment and water uptake.


1,Protection from water exudation and material sedimentation
2,No effect on slurry fluidity with low viscosity HPMC, while its water retention characteristics improve the finish performance on the surface.

Crack Filler

1,Better workability: proper thickness and plasticity
2,Water retention ensures prolonged work time
3,Sag resistance: improved mortar bonding ability

Gypsum Based Plaster

1,Water retention: maximized water content in slurry ensures complete gypsum concretion.
2,Anti-sagging: when spreading a thicker coat corrugation can be avoided ( careful when air is entrained )
3,Increased mortar yield: depending on the weight of the dry mixture and appropriate formulation HPMC can increase the mortar

Ceramic Extrusion

1,Excellent workability for ceramic molding due to lubricity and plasticity
2,Compact texture and smooth surface of ceramic product due to negligible ash content
