BERMOCOLL® cellulose ethers
BERMOCOLL® products are based on the natural polymer cellulose, which is derived from wood pulp or cotton linters.
During the etherification the cellulose reacts with the substituents, such as methyl, ethyl and hydroxyl ethyl. This process makes BERMOCOLL® water soluble.
BERMOCOLL® cellulose ethers are very important additives for the dry mix mortar industry to:
- Increase water retention
- Make thin layer products workable
- Provide a suitable consistency
- Improve adhesion on porous substrates
BERMOCOLL® is a non-ionic cellulose ether. We produce it in varying grades of viscosity in order to meet the solubility requirements of the applications. The grades are available in several different particle sizes such as powder, fine powder and extra fine powder. By combining the parts of the substituents in various ways we are able to customize the properties of BERMOCOLL® to fit individual needs.
