KimaCell® HEMC MH100M hydroxyethyl methyl cellulose HEMC is an important raw material for preparing mechanical spraying mortar. Its main functions are: excellent thickening and water retention capacity, adjusting mortar density and rheology. Its shortcomings are also obvious. HEMC has an air-entraining effect, which will cause more internal pores and defects, which will seriously reduce the mechanical properties of the mortar.When cellulose ether is added to the mortar, the flexible polymers in the pores of the mortar are increased. These flexible polymers cannot provide rigid support when the mortar is under pressure, thereby reducing the flexural and compressive strength of the mortar.
