MHEC Powder : M30

BERMOCOLL M 30 is a non – ionic, water soluble  cellulose ether intended as a water retaining and  consistency improving additive to cement based  mortars. Bermocoll M 30 contains methyl, ethyl and  hydroxyethyl substituents giving a unique balance  between workability and strength.

Typical Properties

Appearance: whitish powder
Particle size: 98 % < 600 μm
Water content: max 5 %
Salt content: max 6 %


BERMOCOLL M 30 is a high viscosity grade of methyl ethyl hydroxyethyl cellulose.

Application Areas

BERMOCOLL M 30 is  used in cement – based tile fix  and joint mortars for improvement of workability, consistency, water retention and adhesion. Normal  dosage in mortar is 0.3  – 0.7 % calculated on the  dry mortar weight.

BERMOCOLL M 30 is intended for dry mixing with  other powder materials and should not be used for  direct dissolving in water.

Safety instructions, Packaging and Storage

Like many industrial processed powdery materials,  cellulose ether dusts are combustible and can  cause dust explosions. Dust formation  must be  avoided or kept to a minimum. Care should be  taken to prevent ignition from heat, spark, open  flames or hot surface.

BERMOCOLL M 30 is packed in a polyethylene  bag. Net weight 15 kg. We recommend emptying  the bags from the bottom. The empty bags c an be  recycled or burned. In unopened bags,  BERMOCOLL M 30 can be stored for several  years. In opened bags, the moisture content of  BERMOCOLL M 30 will be influenced by the air  humidity.

At the temperatures above 250°C (480°F), charring  of BERMOCOLL M 30  will occur. At high  temperatures and in contact with an open flame,  BERMOCOLL M 30 will burn slowly with the  characteristics of cellulose.
