Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) is a non-ionic cellulose ether chemical. It is obtained through a series of chemical treatments, using pure cotton as a raw material. This is a safe non-toxic material that has proven itself in many areas of human life.

Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose is used both in the form of a solution (it dissolves well in water, easily and quickly mixes to the desired condition), and in dry form.

As a material, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose has a number of positive properties that make it important in many industrial areas, namely: Helps to significantly improve mortar adhesion, structure and performance. Holds moisture well. Prevents common problems that occur when laying mortar. It has a pronounced thickening effect. Reduces the cost of building solutions. It has a certain retarding effect, which can improve the plasticity of the solution and extend its working time. Helps to maintain the viscosity of the substance during storage.


The advantages of hydroxypropyl methylcellulose explain its widespread use in the industrial field. Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose is an indispensable material for many areas:

✔️ As a thickening and water-retaining additive in the manufacture of finishing (lacquer and paint compositions, putty mixtures) and construction (self-leveling floors, concrete products, tile adhesive) materials.

✔️ Industrial production of water-based paints and putty mixtures.

✔️ Such production areas as medicine (for various types of dosage forms), cosmetics, household chemicals, knitwear, chemical, food industries. In food production, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose is used to reduce the absorption of fats and improve the palatability of food.

✔️ All types of surface coatings and water-based paints.
