Concrete is one of the commonly used materials in construction projects, known for its high strength, good durability, and easy construction. However, concrete also has some defects in practical use, such as cracking and water leakage. To solve these problems, some materials are added to concrete to improve its performance.
Cellulose is a natural organic polymer compound and the main component of plant cell walls. Cellulose has a simple molecular structure composed of glucose molecules, and it has good biodegradability and biocompatibility. At the same time, cellulose also possesses excellent mechanical strength, heat resistance, and chemical resistance.
Affected by factors such as temperature, cellulose can help cement mortar and gypsum products form a layer of moist protective film during construction, avoiding issues like cracking and peeling caused by excessive drying.
During the construction of mortar and latex coatings, different viscosity levels can be achieved, enabling them to meet various requirements.
The more cellulose is added, the longer the setting time of cement slurry and mortar, and the more significant the delay in cement hydration, thus extending the construction time accordingly.
In conclusion, cellulose used in construction as a building material has excellent functions such as crack prevention, reinforcement, and thickening. It is widely used in construction projects involving concrete, mortar, cement, etc. Adding an appropriate amount of cellulose in construction enables mortar to be more suitable for different building environments, enhances the stability and durability of the building structures, thereby providing effective protection for the quality and efficiency of the construction project and greatly assisting in construction.
