(1). Water retention：Because this product can adsorb large numbers of water, it can strongly keep water in mortar and gypsum.
(2). Shape maintenance: Its aqueous solution has special viscoelastic performance, which maintains the shape of ceramics products.
(3). Lubricant: MC can reduce friction coefficient and improve the lubricating properties of ceramics and concrete products.
(4). PH stability: The viscosity of aqueous solution is little affected by acid or base. Its aqueous solution is stable in wide pH range from 3.0 to 11.0
(5). Film-forming property: MC can form solid, flexible and transparent films, which show good resistance to oils and lipids.
Heat the water to 80-90℃ and slowly add MC under continuous agitation, after reduction in temperature and cooling to form uniform aqueous solution.
Or add one third to two third of needed water, heat them to 80-90℃ and slowly add MC under continuous agitation, after swelling, add residual cool water and cooling.
