Building and Construction
Cellulose Gum, Sodium Carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) is an anionic water-soluble cellulose ether, functions as a thickener, binder, or stabilizer in building and construction materials.
Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (HEC), derived from cellulose ether, is a commonly used thickener and the gelling agent providing excellent functionalities in many construction and coating applications. It’s used either independently or in combination with Hypromellose, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose (HPMC), another viscoelastic polymer.
Welan Gum is a water-soluble anionic polysaccharide synthesized by the fermentation of carbohydrates. It acts as a thickener, suspension agent, binder, emulsifier, stabilizer and viscosity agent in various industrial applications. In cement compositions, it plays a critical use to reduce fluid loss, to increase the suspension properties. Along with superplasticizer, it also acts as a liquefied viscosity agent.
