Discovering WOTAIchem's HPMC Types

Based on the production process, WOTAIchem HPMC products are divided into non-surface-treated and surface-treated HPMC.


> Non-surface treated HPMC quickly disperses and dissolves in hot water. It is ideal for dry mix applications. For example, mortar, putty, tile adhesive, and grout. But, it disperses slowly in cold water and may clump. The rapid viscosity development after stirring ensures efficient usage.


> Surface-treated HPMC disperses rapidly in cold water. The viscosity development time ranges from 1 to 15 minutes. It’s crucial not to exceed this time during operation. This type of HPMC is suitable for liquid systems. For example, hand soaps, detergents, laundry detergents, and paints.



WOTAIchem HPMC Functions

1. Water retention. WOTAIchem HPMC improves water retention for your construction. It can prevent rapid drying and poor hardening in cement and gypsum materials. Minimizing the risk of cracks and extending opening time.


2. Thickening. HPMC can enhance the viscosity of construction materials. Elevating the consistency and stability of your formulations.


3. Anti-Slip. HPMC’s thickening effect prevents slippage during construction. Ensuring a secure grip between mortar and bonded objects.


4. Lubrication. HPMC for cement can improve workability and processing.


WOTAIchem also offers customized modified HPMC. Our advanced labs and talents are ready to support tailored products and formulas to meet your requirements.

How to dissolve HPMC in water?

How WOTAIchem classify your HPMC product grades?
WOTAIchem HPMC Category
Markings Meaning
W W=WO series: Cost Effective Oriented
T T=TAI series: Premium Grade
A High-end modified grade. High degree of substitution and etherification.
B Cost effective Modified grade. Medium degree of substitution and etherification.
P Purified grade/non-modified grade.
S Solubility Delayed (=Surtace treated HPMC)
Why does your HPMC powder seem to have a much smaller volume than other brands?

1. Exceptional Raw Materials

We use refined cotton as our primary raw material. This sets us apart from competitors who often use wood-based cotton.


2. Advanced Screening Process

Our production involves a meticulous two-step sieving process. Initially, the powder undergoes screening with a 60-mesh sieve, followed by a second screening with an 80-mesh sieve.


3. Finer Particle Size

The dual screening process results in a higher mesh count and finer powder. So, our HPMC powder has a smaller volume look. This refinement enhances water retention properties, making our HPMC powder more effective.


WOTAIchem ensures a premium HPMC product that outshines performance and consistency. Trust in our commitment to excellence for your construction additive needs.

What are the differences in application between surface treated HPMC and Unsurface treated HPMC?

Surface treated HPMC dissolves quickly in water. However, it exhibits slow initial viscosity. It is more suitable for use in detergents and coatings.


When used in dry powder putty or tile adhesives, it exhibits slow initial adhesion and thickening afterward. But, this type of HPMC may affect workability.


Unsurface treated HPMC is mainly used in dry mortar or putty. It performs well in thickening mortar mixes and has good workability. But, it tends to clump in liquid adhesives and coatings. So, it is not recommended for other applications.

In summary, surface treated HPMC has a wider range of applications and can be used in most building applications.


Yet, the type should be determined based on your specific application. If you have any questions or need guidance, please feel free to contact our service team.

Is HPMC harmful to human body?

HPMC is a polymer obtained from natural resources such as refined cotton or wood pulp. It is tasteless, odourless, non-toxic white to off-white powder and harmless to humans.

What is the source of hydroxypropyl methylcellulose?

We source our raw materials from nature, mainly cotton staple and wood pulp.

How does HPMC work in construction field?

HPMC has a high water holding capacity and improved workability. It is a very popular ingredient in mortars, putties, plasters, tile adhesives, coatings and detergents.

Is HPMC safe?

HPMC is approved by the FDA, aka Food and Drug Administration as a direct and indirect food additive, and an acceptable daily intake has been established. In addition to this, HPMC is used in home and personal care.

Why do we need HPMC in building materials?

HPMC provides strong bond strength and slip resistance when laying tiles. The HPMC in the plaster paste also results in a smooth and even surface without cracks. In self-levelling operations, labour is greatly reduced, improving manoeuvrability and efficiency.

What should I do if HPMC rapid dissolution used in coatings does not exhibit good color development?

HPMC used for surface treatment primarily functions as a thickening and water-retaining agent. However, in paint applications, color development is crucial. Because it requires high biostability. It is determined by the degree of molar substitution. Since HPMC may have insufficient molar substitution, we recommend using modified HEC (Hydroxyethyl Cellulose) to achieve cost savings while maintaining satisfactory color development.

What factors affect the gel temperature of hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC)?

The gel temperature of HPMC is influenced by its methoxy content. A lower methoxy content leads to a higher gel temperature. Therefore, when using HPMC, it is important to consider the ambient temperature and adjust the dosage accordingly.
