KimaCell® MHEC MH100M methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose has a great impact on the performance of cement-based materials and are difficult to choose. According to the chemical structure classification of substituents, they can be divided into anionic, cationic and nonionic ethers. With the increasing demand and performance requirements for polymer cement in the construction industry, adding additives to its modification has become a research hotspot. Among them, cellulose ether is due to its water retention, thickening, retardation, Gas and other functions, and has been widely used.

KimaCell® MHEC MH100M methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose is used in cement mortar is and appear as a water-retaining agent, which can prevent the moisture in the wet mortar from evaporating prematurely or being absorbed by the base layer, and delay the cement hydration while prolonging the operation time of the wet mortar, ensuring Thin-layer mortar can be combed, plastering mortar can be spread, easy-absorbent mortar does not need to be pre-wetted, etc.In order to prolong the hydration and hardening time of cement and keep the fresh mortar plastic for a long time, so as to adjust the setting time of the fresh mortar and improve its operability, a retarder, non-ionic cellulose ether is added to the mortar as a common retarder in polymer cement.
