Landercoll® Cellulose Ethers more than 12 years of production experience enable us to offer an optimized portfolio of Landercoll® cellulose ethers to the construction industry. 

Our Landercoll® products are based on cellulose, a natural polymer derived from refine cotton fibers.


We offer the following main cellulose ether types,

  • Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose (HPMC)

  • Methyl Hydroxyethyl Methyl Cellulose (HMEC)

  • Hydroxyethyl Cellulose(HEC)

Three product groups are obtained through a chemical substitution process known as etherification.


Landercoll® cellulose ethers are unique in the industry and have been developed to impart a range of properties in dry mix mortars. Depending on the end-user requirements, Landercoll® products provide,

• Increased water retention

• Improved consistency to make thin layer products workable

• Controlled rheology to provide sag resistance

• Reduced segregation of different formulation ingredients

• Improved adhesion on porous substrates

• Optimized air pore stability for improved workability

• Improved adhesion to polystyrene boards


In addition to the conventional uses of Landercoll® cellulose ethers in dry mix mortar formulations, our products are also recommended as rheology modifiers for ready-to-use dispersion based pasty systems.
