General Cellulose Ethers
Cellulose ether is a very important component in building materials that provides better water retention, strength and adhesion to cement, lime and gypsum based products.
Cellulose ethers make it impossible to industrialize high quality mortars.
Our cellulose ethers can:
Improve construction efficiency and mechanical application to save time materials;
Produce high quality mortars that give them new functions;
Improve the adaptability of mortars to environment in site.
Cellulose ether can prevent water from being absorbed by the substrate too quickly and reduce the rate of water volatilization into the air, and assure more water to stay in the mortar to participate in cement or gypsum hydration, increase the green and final strength of the dry mortar.
Cellulose ether with better water retention can prolong the curing time of mortar. The ample operating time of mortar makes it to apply easily.
The water retention of cellulose ether will be affected ,by the ambient temperature. Jianxin Company’s products have consistent water retention in a wide temperature range, even if above 50℃ for Some special grades.
The good sag resistance of the mortar means that there is no slippage when the mortar is applied at a considerable thickness. The tile laid onto the wall will not be slip by gravity; The engraved mortar will have a good shape. Jianxin’s cellulose ethers can significantly increase the yield strength and thixotropic properties of the mortars, which gives mortars excellent sag resistance and improves construction efficiency.
We developed special cellulose ethers for mortars that are applied in different ways. They can make the mortar have better application properties, reduce the stickiness to the tools, and make the application feel smoother, which makes the construction easier and reduces the labor consumption.
At the same time, we have a product line that dissolves in water shortly, which achieves the suitable viscosityand required sag resistance, it is ideal for mechanical application.
It is more economical to get a higher volume of fresh mortar after a fixed weight parts of dry mortar mix water.
Jianxin’s modified cellulose ethers can increase air content in the mortar, the volume of the fresh mortar is larger, thus the trowelling area is increased.
Jianxin’s cellulose ethers can reduce the surface tension of the mortar slurry, which makes the mortar wet the substrate better, ensure the green adhesion of the mortar to the substrate, and keep the mortar layer from rolling and falling down from the substrate during application.
Cellulose ethers can keep the water the same content in the mortar and on the surface of the mortar for a certain period of time, not only entraining water in the mortar. They can keep the surface of the mortar wet and ensure the operating time and easy application operation of the mortar.
Some grades of cellulose ethers will provide special mortars with suspension without changing the consistency of the mortar. The heavy aggregates will be uniformly dispersed in the mortars and precipitation and bleeding will not happen. These special properties are important for self-leveling, self-compacting mortar.
