Chinacel HPMC Highlights

Cold-water solubility. HPMC dissolves easily in cold water, reducing your waiting time.
Thickness. Increases viscosity and stability of liquids.
Water retention. Extending the open time also helps cement hydration more fully.
Lubrication. HPMC for cement can improves workability and processing.
Thermal gelation. HPMC turns into a gel when the temperature is too high, and when cools down, it turns into the liquid again.
Air entraining. HPMC for mortar helps increase production and improve workability.
Film formation. Hydroxy Propyl Methyl Cellulose is waterproof and oil-proof.

HPMC Application 

Construction industry: HPMC is commonly used as a thickening agent in cement-based products such as tile adhesives, grouts, and self-leveling compounds. It improves workability, water retention, and adhesion properties of the products.

Pharmaceutical industry: HPMC is used as a coating agent for tablets and capsules to control the release of active ingredients. It also acts as a binder in the formulation of tablets.

Food industry: HPMC is used as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier in various food products such as sauces, dressings, and dairy products. It helps improve texture, viscosity, and shelf life of the products.

Personal care products: HPMC is used in cosmetics and personal care products such as lotions, creams, and shampoos as a thickening agent, emulsifier, and film-forming agent. It helps improve the texture and stability of the products.

Paints and coatings: HPMC is used as a thickener and rheology modifier in water-based paints and coatings to improve flow properties, sag resistance, and adhesion to surfaces.

Textile industry: HPMC is used as a sizing agent in the textile industry to improve the strength and smoothness of yarns and fabrics.

Agriculture: HPMC is used as a binder in the formulation of pesticides and fertilizers to improve adhesion and dispersion properties.

Paper industry: HPMC is used as a coating agent in paper manufacturing to improve the smoothness, printability, and water resistance of paper products.
