EipponCell® MHEC LH 6100M, a methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose, has a significant impact on the performance of cement-based materials and presents a challenging decision in its selection process. Based on the classification of substituents according to their chemical structure, cellulose ethers can be categorized into anionic, cationic, and nonionic types. As the construction industry demands higher performance and quality for polymer cement, the inclusion of additives for its modification has become a prominent area of research. Cellulose ether, particularly, has gained widespread usage due to its water retention, thickening, retardation, and gas-related functions.

Application of MHEC LH 6100M

EipponCell® MHEC LH 6100M methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose is utilized in cement mortar as a water-retaining agent, serving to prevent premature evaporation or absorption of moisture in the wet mortar by the substrate. It effectively delays cement hydration, thereby extending the working time of the wet mortar. This ensures that thin-layer mortar can be applied smoothly, plastering mortar can be spread easily, and absorbent mortar doesn't require pre-wetting, among other benefits. To further prolong cement hydration and hardening time, and maintain the fresh mortar's plasticity, a common retarder in polymer cement, namely non-ionic cellulose ether, is added to the mortar. This retarder helps adjust the setting time of the fresh mortar, enhances its workability, and improves overall operability.
