HPMC YB6000 is a construction-grade hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose used as a concrete admixture. EipponCell HPMC YB6000 is a low-viscosity cellulose ether with a viscosity of 6000cps. The viscosity of cellulose ether has a direct impact on the thickening effect in mortar, although it is not entirely proportional. In particular, low-viscosity HPMC, especially modified cellulose ether, exhibits superior performance in enhancing the structural strength of wet mortar. As the viscosity increases, the cellulose ether also improves water retention properties. This means that higher viscosity HPMC provides better moisture retention in the mortar, promoting proper hydration and ensuring the desired setting and curing processes. The use of EipponCell HPMC YB6000 in concrete admixture applications offers the advantages of improved mortar strength, enhanced workability, and optimized water retention for achieving optimal concrete performance.

Application of HPMC YB6000

When EipponCell HPMC YB6000 is applied to extruded concrete slabs, it offers several advantages.

First, cellulose ethers, such as HPMC, exhibit excellent water retention. ​This is particularly crucial in the production of dry mixed mortars, including specialised and modified mortars.. The water retention capability of cellulose ether ensures that the mortar maintains a sufficient moisture content during production, allowing for proper hydration and optimal curing of the concrete slabs.

Secondly, cellulose ether, including EipponCell HPMC YB6000, influences the consistency and thixotropy of mortar. Consistency refers to the workability and flow properties of the mortar, and isotropy refers to its ability to regain viscosity after shear stress.. The choice of cellulose ether, along with considerations such as its degree of polymerization, solution concentration, shear rate, and temperature, allows for tuning in the thickening and translational properties of the mortar.. This helps to achieve the desired consistency and flow behavior for efficient extrusion of concrete slabs.

Moreover, by selecting cellulose ethers with different degrees of modification and particle sizes, it is possible to further fine-tune the consistency of the mortar. This allows for greater control and customization in the production process, ensuring that the extruded concrete slabs meet specific requirements and performance standards.

The application of EipponCell HPMC YB6000 HPMC MP6M in extruded concrete slabs offers advantages such as enhanced water retention, improved consistency, and the ability to adjust thixotropy and thickening properties. These benefits contribute to the production of high-quality, durable concrete slabs with optimal workability and performance.
