EipponCell HPMC YB 5100M is a hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose (HPMC) specifically designed for use in Exterior Insulation Finishing Systems (EIFS/ETICS). HPMC is a water-soluble polymer that exhibits unique properties and functionalities in a variety of applications.

One notable characteristic of EipponCell HPMC YB 5100M is its rapid dispersion, swelling, and dissolution in cold water. This allows for easy handling and preparation of aqueous solutions. The solution remains stable at room temperature, but can undergo gelation at high temperatures, where the properties of the gel change with temperature. This thermal gelation property makes it suitable for applications involving temperature variability.

The HPMC solution demonstrated excellent wettability, dispersibility, adhesion, thickening, emulsification, salt discharge, water retention, and film formation properties. ​It forms films with outstanding toughness, flexibility and transparency, making it ideal for EIFS/ETICS applications where durability and aesthetics are critical.

Due to its non-ionic nature, EipponCell HPMC YB 5100M exhibits compatibility with other emulsifiers, facilitating its incorporation into various formulations. It is important to note, however, that HPMC is prone to saltation, meaning that it can precipitate in the presence of certain salts.

Another notable property of the HPMC is its thermal gelation behavior.. The aqueous solution of this product forms a gel and precipitates when heated, which dissolves upon cooling.. The gelation temperature may vary depending on the specific specifications of the HPMC product.

Application of HPMC YB 5100M

EipponCell HPMC YB 5100M is a versatile cellulose ether that finds application in ETICS/EIFS systems. It has several beneficial properties for these applications, including the following:

Improved Rheological State: Modified cellulose ether, such as EipponCell HPMC YB 5100M , enhances the rheological behavior of cellulose ether after swelling in water. This results in increased viscosity, which refers to a material's ability to regain its original viscosity after undergoing shear stress. The modified cellulose ether enhances the translational properties of the mortar by improving its translational index. This, in turn, improves the workability and shear resistance of the mortar, preventing slippage during application.

Enhanced Operability: The use of modified cellulose ether, like EipponCell HPMC YB 5100M , improves the operability of mortar. It provides a better thickening effect compared to conventional cellulose ether, allowing improved control during application. In addition, it helps reduce the stickiness of the mortar to the knife, facilitating smoother and more precise application.

Optimal Construction Operability: Through careful screening and appropriate selection of cellulose ether, including EipponCell HPMC YB 5100M , the construction operability of mortar can be ensured. This means that the properties of cellulose ether can be tailored to match the specific requirements of mortar formulation, enabling easier and more efficient applications.

In ETICS/EIFS systems, the adhesive mortar plays a crucial role in bonding the insulating board to the wall substrate. ​It requires excellent and durable bonding strength to ensure the overall safety and stability of the insulation system. Plastering mortar, applied to the outer surface of the insulating board, serves to protect the entire insulating system.

By incorporating EipponCell HPMC YB 5100M , the adhesive mortar benefits from improved rheological properties, enhanced thixotropy, and increased shear resistance. These qualities contribute to better bonding strength, ensuring a reliable and long-lasting connection between the insulating board and the wall substrate.

Similarly, the plastering mortar benefits from the enhanced operability provided by EipponCell HPMC YB 5100M . Its improved thickening effect and reduced stickiness make the application smoother and more manageable. This results in a well-protected insulation system that can effectively withstand external stresses and environmental conditions.
