KimaCell® HPMC MP60M is Cellulose ether used in masonry mortar. HPMC MP60M is one of the important cellulose ether admixtures in dry mixed mortar, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose has many functions in mortar. The most important role of HPMC MP60M in cement mortar is water retention and thickening. In addition, due to its interaction with the cement system, it can also play an auxiliary role in air entraining, retarding and improve the tensile bond strength.

KimaCell® HPMC MP60M can be used in masonry mortar. It has the bellow property:
The excellent water retention performance of HPMC makes the mortar open for a longer time, and has the advantages of large-area construction, long service life in the barrel, and batch mixing and batch use.
The water retention performance of HPMC makes the cement in the mortar fully hydrated and effectively improves the bonding performance of the mortar.
The excellent water retention performance of HPMC makes the mortar less prone to segregation and bleeding, which improves the workability and constructability of the mortar.
