Our product portfolio comprises three main technologies Bermocoll® EHEC and MEHEC cellulose ethers, ELOTEX® redispersible polymer powders and ELOTEX® specialty additives. They can be used as standalone additives or in combination with one another, and are a powerful toolkit for the development of drymix mortar formulations for the construction industry.
Building and Construction applications:
Bermocoll and ELOTEX products are used as building material additives for modern dry mix mortars in construction. They improve the performance of products such as tile and building adhesives, levelling compounds, gap fillers, repair mortars, rendering, waterproofing systems and mortars for thermal insulation composite systems.
Bermocoll cellulose ethers are unique in the industry and are developed to impart a range of properties in drymix mortars. Depending on the end-user requirements, Bermocoll products provide:
In addition to the conventional uses of Bermocoll cellulose ethers in drymix mortar formulations, our products are also recommended as rheology modifiers for ready-to-use dispersion based pasty systems.
ELOTEX redispersible polymer powders have a decisive influence on cement, lime or gypsum-based finished drymix mortar products, as well as on cement free and mineral-binder free system. Our free-flowing redispersible polymer powders are obtained through spray-drying of optimized latex dispersions.
Our expertise in the development and production of special latex dispersions allows AkzoNobel to supply an unprecedented range of products specifically developed to bring defined improvements to a wide range of mortars:
The ELOTEX specialty additives range comprises a number of differing technologies ranging from formulated additives such as our ELOTEX® CAST family to encapsulated silane technology used in the development of our ELOTEX® SEAL products.
We have a strong R&D organization with the capabilities and expertise to maximize the benefits of Bermocoll and ELOTEX in your application.
