Cellulose fibres as additive for tile adhesives
Our celluloses are added to mineral building materials such as tile adhesives.
JELUCEL® celluloses retain water and ensure that the adhesive dries more slowly. As a consequence it can be applied to the substrate more homogeneously and retains a smooth texture for longer. The increased drying time and associated prolonged open time lead to optimal processing properties.
The adhesion properties are also improved. JELUCEL® not only affects the adhesive’s bonding to the substrate, but also the tile’s bonding to the adhesive. The slipping tendency of the tile decreases, while the tensile adhesion strength increases.
