HPMC-Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose

Kimicell HPMC is a high efficient water retention agent, stabilizer, adhesives, and film-former for construction materials. They are available in different modifications. When used in building materials, it improves the workability by enhancing adhesion, water retention, and lubricity, shrink and crack resistance.
