EipponCell HPMC YB 560M is a type of cellulose ether that is commonly used as an admixture in masonry mortar. Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) has several important functions in mortar. Its primary role in cement mortar is to retain water and provide thickening properties. Additionally, HPMC YB 560M interacts with the cement system, allowing it to assist in air entrainment, retardation, and improvement of the tensile bond strength.

Application of HPMC YB 560M

EipponCell HPMC YB 560M is suitable for use in masonry mortar due to its notable properties:

The HPMC exhibits exceptional water retention, allowing the mortar to remain serviceable for an extended period of time.   ​This offers advantages such as facilitating large-scale construction, enabling longer service life in the mixing bucket, and supporting batch mixing and batch utilization.

The water retention properties of HPMC contribute to the thorough hydration of the cement within the mortar, effectively enhancing the bonding properties of the mortar.

By significantly reducing the likelihood of segregation and bleeding, HPMC's superior water retention enhances the workability and constructionability of the mortar.
