HPMC MP15M is Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose manufactured for premium tile adhesives. The popularization of the use of tile adhesive and grout will bring about an increase in the demand for building material grade KimaCell® cellulose ether, providing market space for the release of the Kima company's production capacity. According to the annual cellulose ether data, the company's tile adhesive grade cellulose ether is a building material grade HPMC with a gel temperature of 75°C.

KimaCell® HPMC MP15M can be used in standard tile adhesive. It has the bellow property on bellow point:
When latex powder and cellulose ether HPMC co-exist in wet mortar, some data models show that RDP powder has stronger kinetic energy to attach to cement hydration products, and cellulose ether exists more in the interstitial fluid, which affects more Mortar viscosity and setting time.
In addition to imparting the above-mentioned beneficial properties to mortar, cellulose ether also delays the hydration kinetics of cement. This retarding effect is mainly due to the adsorption of cellulose ether molecules on various mineral phases in the cement system being hydrated. Cellulose ether molecules are mainly adsorbed on hydration products and rarely adsorbed on the original mineral phase of the clinker. In addition, the cellulose ether reduces the mobility of ions in the pore solution due to the increase in the viscosity of the pore solution, thereby further retarding the hydration process.
