Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose (HPMC) can also be known as Methyl Hydroxypropyl Cellulose MHPC, hypromellose, are kinds of non-ionic cellulose ether, that are a natural powder of white colored to off-white-colored colour, that serve as a thickener, binder, surfactant, protective colloid, lubricant, emulsifier, and suspensions and normal water maintenance aid. Additionally, these kinds of cellulose ethers show properties of energy gelation, metabolic inertness, enzyme level of resistance, lower stench and style, and pH stability.

Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose HPMC are widely used in construction,pharmaceutical drug,food,plastic, detergent,paints,textiles and many others.We can easily supply the regular quality HPMC, we also layout the modified Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose HPMC according to buyer needs. Following altered, we can get the product or service that have very long open time, great anti-slag,excellent workability and many others.

Construction Grade Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose (HPMC)

Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose (HPMC) Construction Grade are water soluble, nonionic cellulose ethers, which are offered as free flowing powder or in granular form. HPMC can be seen as a generic term for mixed etherification cellulose ethers. Common to these cellulose ethers is the methoxylation. Additionally, the reaction can be achieved with propylene oxide. HPMC are widely used in wall putty, Skim coat,joint filler, self-levelling ,Tile adhesives, dry mixed mortar, cement and gypsum based plaster etc.We can provide both non-modified grade and modified grade HPMC, which has long open time, good water retention, excellent workability and Good slipping resistance etc.

Typical Applications

Cement Plaster / Dry mix mortar
•Increased water demand: increased open time, expanded spry area and more economical formulation.
•Easier spreading and improved sagging resistance due to improved consistency.
•Easy dry mix formula due to cold water solubility: lump formation can be easily avoided, ideal for heavy tiles.
•Good water retention: prevention of fluid loss to the substrates, the appropriate water content is kept in mixture which guarantees longer concreting time.

Tile Adhesives
•Improved adhesion and sliding resistance: especially for heavy tiles.
•Better workability: lubricity and plasticity of plaster is ensured, mortar can be applied easier and quicker.
•Good water retention: prolonged opening time will make tiling more efficient.


Exterior Insulation and Finish System ( EIFS )
•Reduced air entrancement and water uptake.
•Improved adhesion.
•Good wetting ability for EPS board and substrate.

Wall putty/Skim coat
•Increased mortar yield: depending on the weight of the dry mixture and appropriate formulation ,HPMC can increase the mortar volume.
•Water retention: maximized water content in slurry.
•Anti-sagging: when spreading a thicker coat corrugation can be avoided.


Crack Filler
·Water retention ensures prolonged work time.
·Sag resistance: improved mortar bonding ability.
·Better workability: proper thickness and plasticity.

•No effect on slurry fluidity with low viscosity
HPMC, while its water retention characteristics improve the finish performance on the surface.
•Protection from water exudation and material sedimentation.


Detergent Grade Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose (HPMC)

Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose (HPMC) Detergent Grade is white powder with good water solubility. It has thickening, adhesion ,dispersing, emulsifying, film, suspended, adsorption, gel, and protective colloid properties of surface activity and maintain moisture function properties etc.Detergent grade HPMC is surface treated through unique production process ,it can provide high viscosity with fast disperse and delayed solution. Detergent grade HPMC can be dissolved in cold water quickly and increase excellent thickening effect. Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose HPMC is used for detergent liquid ,hand sanitizer, Alcohol gel ,shampoo, washing liquid ,cleaning chemicals as thickener and dispersing agent

Pharma Grade Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose (HPMC)

Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose (HPMC) Pharmaceutical Grade is Hypromellose pharmaceutical excipient and supplement,it is effective as a binder, since it does not interact with drugs. It has superior stability, a non-ionic character and is widely used as a binder for granulation. Due to its plant derived nature and excellent moisture stability, hypromellose replaces gelatin in hard capsule manufacturing.
QualiCell® Cellulose ether consists of methyl cellulose (USP, EP,BP,CP) and three substitution types of hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose (hypromellose USP, EP,BP,CP) each available in several grades differing in viscosity.HPMC products are derived from natural refined cotton linter and wood pulp, meeting all the requirements of the USP, EP, BP, along with Kosher and Halal Certifications.
QualiCell® HPMC provides a variety of functions such as water retention, protective colloid, surface activity, sustained release. It is a non-ionic compound resistant to salting out and stable over a wide pH-range. Typical applications of HPMC are binder for solid dosage forms such as tablets and granules or thickener for liquid applications.
They are produced in a specialized production plant in Bohai New District where plant-based raw material is turned into these special pharmaceutical excipients.
Different viscosity grades are available according to your requirement.HPMC comes in diverse viscosity ranges from 3 to 200000 cps, and it can be widely used for tablet coating, granulation, binder, thickener, stabilizer and making vegetable HPMC capsule. Sustained release matrix tablets based on water soluble cellulose derivatives are the easiest, cost-effective and most popular way to modify drug release.
