Dry mix mortars are extensively utilized in the building industry due to their versatility and wide range of applications. These mortars are commonly used in both new construction projects and renovation works. They consist of a mixture of cement, sand, limestone powder, and functional additives. Despite being added in small quantities, these additives greatly enhance the performance of the final mortar.
Dry mix mortars find various uses, including screeds, plasters, and masonry mortars. They are also employed in floor leveling compounds, tile adhesives, and grouts. Additionally, advanced dry mortar technology has led to the development of specialist products like repair mortars, waterproofing and sealing slurries, and injection mortars.
Overall, dry mix mortars offer a reliable and efficient solution for a broad spectrum of construction needs in the building industry.
Cellulose ethers play a vital role in improving the performance of mortar by enhancing water retention and preventing rapid water loss, as well as addressing issues like strength reduction and cracking due to insufficient cement hydration.
One significant benefit of cellulose ethers is their excellent thickening effect. When added to dry-mix mortar, they can significantly increase viscosity, leading to improved adhesion and enhanced sag resistance in tiled applications.
Moreover, cellulose ethers are specially processed, resulting in exceptional solubility in cement mortar, plaster, and coatings systems. They do not easily agglomerate and dissolve rapidly, ensuring ease of use and effective performance.
At our company, we offer a diverse range of cellulose ethers with outstanding technical properties. Our product lineup includes Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose (HPMC), Hydroxyethyl Methyl Cellulose (HEMC), Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (HEC), and Hydroxypropyl Starch Ether (HPS). These options are designed to meet various performance requirements in different types of mortars, allowing for customized solutions to address specific needs.
The redispersible powder, which is created by spray drying and a polymer binder composed mainly of vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymer, is a unique water-based emulsion. When water is partially evaporated, polymer particles come together to form a strong adhesive polymer film. Our re-dispersible polymer powder functions as an organic adhesive, allowing it to create a high tensile strength and bonding strength film on different substrates. This film improves the mortar's impact resistance, durability, and abrasion resistance. The addition of powder particles also increases the density of the mortar, thereby enhancing its wear resistance. Additionally, utilizing our RDP products in the final product can improve its weather resistance, freeze-thaw resistance, and crack resistance.
Our re-dispersible polymer powder products find applications in various building materials such as tile adhesives, exterior wall insulation systems, tile grouts, wall putty, self-leveling floor mortars, interface mortars, cement-based waterproof mortars, repair mortars, masonry plastering mortars, EPS plastering, diatomaceous earth decoration materials, and other related fields.
By incorporating superplasticizers into mortar, we can achieve a high water reduction rate, excellent plasticizing effect, and impressive strengthening performance. Our polycarboxylate superplasticizer powder products have found extensive usage in cement or gypsum-based mortars that require high fluidity and strength. They are commonly used in fluid mortars for pouring, paving, and painting purposes. Furthermore, they are frequently employed in various types of concrete, including premixed concrete, pump concrete, self-compacting concrete, and other high-strength and high-performance concretes.
Additionally, our Melamine Sulphonate Superplasticizer products are specifically designed for applications such as high-strength plaster, gypsum-based self-leveling floors, gypsum plaster, gypsum putty, cement-based self-leveling floors, repair mortar, and special high-strength mortar, among others.
