HPS (Hydroxy Propyl Starch Ether)
STARCELL® can impart unique properties to cement and gypsum based products.
It has the similar chemical structure with HPMC that not only provide HPMC-like function, but also has good compatibility with other building additives.
In combination with HPMC, MEICELL® , STARCELL®can play a better thickening effect,
with better crack resistance and improve workability. And by adding starch ether, the cost of the mortar formulation can be significantly reduced.
- Appearance: white powder, good fluidity
- Good water solubility; Aqueous solution is transparent and colorless with good stability.
- stable with acid and alkali. Gelatinization temperature is lower than original starch. Viscosity stability is better than the original starch in hot and cold conditions.
- Viscosity is not changed with salt and sugar
- Freeze-thaw stability and transparency is better than the original starch.
