Cellulosic technology

Decades of experience built up by Dow Wolff Cellulosics enable Dow Construction Chemicals to offer a portfolio of cellulose-based products for construction materials with distinctive benefits across a wide range of applications.

The range includes well known brands such as WALOCEL™ and METHOCEL™ cellulose ethers which incorporate features such as:

  • rapid development of temperature-stable, high-water retention capabilities
  • selective consistency adjustment for easy workability
  • precise control of rheology for good workability and sag resistance
  • stabilization of air voids
  • improved substrate adhesion.

Potential applications range from tile adhesives and grouts, to fillers, levellers and joint compounds, and from reinforcing and bonding mortars for ETICS to gypsum plasters and cement-based renders.
