ELOTEX® and BERMOCOLL® building material additives for modern dry mix mortars in construction. We are one of the world’s top producers of redispersible polymer powders, cellulose ethers and specialty additives such as thickeners, hydrophobic additive, efflorescence reducers, stain resistant additives.
Products such as tile and building adhesives, levelling compounds, gap fillers, repair mortars and rendering, waterproofing systems as well as redispersible adhesives and adhesive mortars for thermal insulation composite material systems are derived.
Our brand products are ELOTEX® Redispersible Polymer Powders and Specialty Additives, BERMOCOLL® and BERMODOL® Cellulose Ethers.
Redispersible Polymer Powders
Our wide range of different polymer powder products is based on monomers such as vinyl acetate, vinyl versatate, ethylene and acrylate technology. These monomers are used in a first stage to produce a liquid dispersion via waterbased emulsion polymerization technology. In a second step, after further modification, the water-based dispersion is spray-dried to obtain a free-flowing redispersible polymer powder.
Our R&D has developed a unique, enhanced range of SPECIALTY ADDITIVES in powder form to further improve the application and end-use performance of dry mix products used for high-end applications.
Our Specialty Additives portfolio offers
Improved water resistance
Superior water repellency
BERMOCOLL® Cellulose Ethers
BERMOCOLL® is used to last a long time. It is a very important component in building products and is added in order to increase water retention, to give a suitable consistency and to improve adhesion in cement and gypsum-based systems.
Since BERMOCOLL® has excellent water retention we are able to delay the rapid escape of water into nearby absorbent substrates. When using BERMOCOLL®l you will get a better control of the consistency and it makes your product easy to work with.
We continuously develop new products based on our M technology by finding the right balance between methyl, ethyl and ethyl hydroxyl ethyl groups.
MEHEC has the highest methyl substitution and is used in all cement based applications and provides the best balance of the two most important properties; workability and strength.
M 800 X based products are highly efficient and intended for gypsum applications with excellent water retention and application properties.
EM and EBM are developed for dispersion based formulations and contain a small amount of methyl groups. They are treated in order to dissolve smoothly in water. EBM grades are low foaming with good storage stability.
EHEC and CCA contain no methyl and are pure ethyl hydroxylethyl cellulose and be used in most building applications.
