Redispersible Powder Polymers
Redispersible powder polymers from Celanese (Elotex) are organic polymer powders manufactured by spray drying liquid latex emulsions.In combination with other additives such as Bermocoll cellulose ethers, Celanese (Elotex) powder polymers improve the properties of cement or gypsum based dry mixed products.
Celanese (Elotex) redispersible powder polymers provide the performance benefits of liquid latex in terms of improved adhesion and flexibility along with the convenience of handling and storage benefits associated with one component dry mixed products.
Advantages in end use applications include:
- Improved workability
- Increased adhesion to variety of substrates
- Higher flexural strength and flexiblity
- Higher resistance to freeze/thaw attack
- Improved surface hardness and abrasion resistance
Celanese (Elotex) redispersible powders are key ingredients improving the properties of mortars used in: Tile and building adhesives – levelling compounds – gap fillers – repair mortars – rendering products – waterproofing systems – thermal insulation composite systems.
Flooring – Quality from the bottom up
Celanese (Elotex) products support the rheology and workability of the full range of flooring formulations improving ease of on-site application and ensuring exceptionally smooth, defect-free surfaces.

Tiling – Flexible Connections
Cementitious tile adhesives formulated with Elotex® products are easy to work with, environmentally friendly, easy to apply and offer flexible, long lasting performance of tiled areas.
|Grades for tiling:||Elotex® MP2100|
Grouts – Sealing the Gaps
Tile grouts incorporating Elotex® products, seal the gaps between tiles and compensate for any unevenness. In addition, tile joints perform an architectural and aesthetic function with their pattern and coloring.
|Grades for grouts:||Elotex® MP2100|
ETICS - Sustainability through Energy Savings
The use of Elotex® products is essential for the workability, water retention, open time and general physical properties of the ETICS (External Thermal Insulation Composite System) mortars.
|Grades for ETICS:||Elotex® MP2100|
Waterproofing – Keeping Water at Bay
Highly flexible cementitious waterproofing membrane modified with Elotex® redispersible.
