METHOCEL™ 254 is a modified hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose polymer that is used in the construction sector as a thickener and rheology modifier.


Product Overview

METHOCEL™ 254 is primarily intended for use in manually and spray-applied plasters. Along with strong thickening functionality, METHOCEL™ 254 gives plasters exceptional workability and significantly improves water retention. It may also be used in adhesives for ceramic tiles based on cement. The particle size distribution of METHOCEL™ 254 promotes quick dissolution, which is unaffected by formulation pH. All mineral binders are compatible with the product.
