Culminal™ FS modified cellulose ethers for fast setting ternary systems

Chemistry: Cellulosics

A new line of specific Culminal FS™ (fast setting) grades has been developed for ternary binder systems requiring extremely fast strength development.

Culminal FS™ is designed to support a one-solution approach eliminating the need for additional thickener systems like organoclays and starch ethers. Culminal FS products for tile adhesives based on ternary binder systems (high alumina cement / portland cement / gypsum) allow manufacture of adhesives giving excellent sag resistance for vertical application without need for additional rheology modifiers and, using the same formulation, with an increased water dosage, for fixing horizontally applied tiles, where limited sag resistance, however, excellent adhesive transfer is needed.
