EipponCell® MHEC LH 6150M methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose is widely recognized as the preferred additive for construction wall putty due to its exceptional water retention performance. By effectively retaining moisture, this admixture extends the working time, resulting in improved construction performance and enhanced work efficiency. In a systematic study conducted on interior wall environmental protection putty containing diatomite as the primary functional filler, the impact of different viscosities of HPMC and the amount of putty on various performance aspects was carefully examined. The research revealed that the bond strength of the wall putty initially increases with the dosage of MHEC, but beyond a certain point, it starts to decrease. This finding emphasizes the significance of optimizing the MHEC dosage to achieve the desired bond strength.

Application of MHEC LH 6150M

EippionCell® MHEC LH 6150M methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose is a water-soluble cellulose ether that can also dissolve in certain organic solvents. It exhibits excellent solubility in cold water, with the maximum concentration determined by its viscosity. The solubility characteristics of MHEC vary with viscosity, where lower viscosity grades have higher solubility.

As non-ionic cellulose ethers, MHEC products are relatively stable in aqueous solutions containing metal salts or organic electrolytes. However, excessive amounts of electrolytes can lead to gelation and precipitation.

The aqueous solutions of MHEC possess surface-active properties, enabling their use as colloidal protective agents, emulsifiers, and dispersants.

When heated to a specific temperature, the aqueous solution of MHEC products turns opaque, forms a gel, and precipitates. However, upon continuous cooling, the solution regains its original state. The gelation and precipitation temperature primarily depend on the lubricating agent, suspending agent, protective colloid, emulsifier, etc. present in the solution.
