Methyl Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (MHEC) is a cellulose ether derivative widely used in various industrial applications due to its excellent water retention, thickening, and film-forming properties. It is particularly valued in construction materials, such as cement and gypsum-based products, for its ability to improve workability, enhance adhesion, and provide stability. MHEC is also used in paints, coatings, adhesives, and personal care products, contributing to improved texture, consistency, and performance. Its versatility and effectiveness make it a crucial ingredient in many formulations requiring controlled viscosity and moisture retention.

The Role Of MHEC In Tile Adhesive:

●Greatly improve the water retention capacity, inhibit the large loss of moisture to the highly water-absorbing ceramic tile and substrate, so that there is enough water for hardening condition of cement, the bond strength is increased and the slip resistance of mortar is further improved;

●Excellent open time and adjustable time for workers to adjust the mistakes of placing wrong ceramic;

●No matter be thickly sticked or thin sticked, it can develop a good bond strength, reduce shrinkage rate, and it won’t cause ceramic tile craze and fall off by stress;

Application in Tile Adhesives:

Mixing: MHEC is typically added to the dry mix of tile adhesives. It is blended with cement, sand, and other additives before water is added to form the adhesive paste.

Water Addition: When water is mixed with the dry ingredients, MHEC dissolves and hydrates, helping to form a smooth, workable paste.

Application: The tile adhesive is then applied to the substrate using a trowel. MHEC ensures that the adhesive spreads evenly and adheres well to both the tile and the substrate.
