Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose (HPMC) Construction Admixture

Molecular formula: C12H20O10

Molecular weight: 324.2848

CASno: 9004-65-3

Physical and chemical properties of hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose:
1. Appearance: white or almost white powder.
2. Granularity; 100 mesh pass rate is greater than 98.5%; 80 mesh pass rate is greater than 100%.
3. Carbonization temperature of hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose: 280-300℃
4. Apparent density: 0.25-0.70/cm3 (usually around 0.5g/cm3), specific gravity 1.26-1.31.
5. Discoloration temperature: 190-200℃
6. Surface tension of hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose: 2% aqueous solution is 42-56dyn/cm.
7. Soluble in water and some solvents, such as ethanol/water, propanol/water, trichloroethane, etc. in an appropriate ratio. The aqueous solution has surface activity. High transparency, stable performance, different specifications of products have different gel temperatures, solubility changes with viscosity, the lower the viscosity, the greater the solubility, the performance of different specifications of HPMC has a certain difference, the dissolution of HPMC in water is not affected by PH value.
8. As HPMC content decreases, gel point increases, water solubility decreases, and surface activity also decreases.
9. HPMC also has the characteristics of thickening ability, salt-resistant low-ash powder, PH stability, water retention, dimensional stability, excellent film-forming properties, and extensive resistance to enzymes, dispersion and adhesion.

Main purpose of hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose:
This product is architectural grade HPMC. Its main purpose is to be used as a dispersant, thickener, water retention in coatings, building materials, paint removers, agricultural chemicals, inks, textile printing and dyeing, ceramics, papermaking, cosmetics and other products. , Film-forming agent, etc. In the construction process of the construction industry, it is mainly used in mechanized construction such as wall building, stucco decoration, and caulking; especially in decorative construction, it is used to paste ceramic tiles, marble, and plastic decoration, which has high adhesive strength and can be reduced. The amount of cement. Used as a thickener in the paint industry, it can make the layer bright and delicate, without powdering, and improve the leveling performance.

Hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose dissolution method:
1. Take the required amount of hot water, put it in a container and heat it to above 85°C. Gradually add this product with slow agitation. The cellulose initially floats on the surface of the water, but it is gradually dispersed to form a uniform slurry. Cool the solution with stirring.
2. Alternatively, heat 1/3 or 2/3 of the hot water to above 85 ---, add cellulose to obtain hot water slurry, then add the remaining amount of cold water, keep stirring, and cool the resulting mixture.

Package & Storage


stored in cool and dry place, keep far from sun, heating sourse, water and moisture.
