Dry Mortar, modified starch, etherified starch

Improve Workability and Anti-Slipping in the Mortar
The trend of using dry mix mortar is increasing by 6-10% globally every year since there are many benefits compared to conventional mortar such as consistent quality, lower operating cost, and improved productivity by using automatic mixing and spraying machine. The most important additives for dry mortar application are water retaining agent, thickener and rheology modifier. Water retaining agent is used to hold water for cement hydration and the rheology modifier is added to adjust mortar flow-ability for smooth application.

Starch Ether is known as a rheology modifier to improve workability and provide anti-sagging to mortar. You can now experience the new innovation of dry mortar which productively allows convenience while troweling, time-saving, stable quality, viscosity and cost optimization with our innovative starch ether as an additive.

SMS’s starch ether products are developed to provide these functions suitable to many types of mortar. e.g. plastering, masonry, repair mortars, skim coat, wall putty, tile adhesive, in both cement and gypsum-based products.

Plastering mortar

High end quality of plastering mortar requires smoothness and leveling.

To get these appearance, fresh mortar should have non-sag and thixotropic properties.

Our EXCELCON 100, EXCELCON P360 and EXCELCON A380 are created to act as a rheology modifier to improve workability, easy troweling and anti sagging of plastering mortar product.

Skim coat mortar

Skim coat is considered as the exquisite layer for the special decorated wall.

Good skim coat needs high water holding and thixotropic properties to prevent dusting problem and easy troweling.

SMS introduces EXCELCON 100 and EXCELCON 300, the innovative starch ether as an additive to boost up workability, cost saving, anti-sagging and to solve the stickiness problem for the perfect skim coating.

Tile adhesive mortar

EXCELCON A380, EXCELCON A850, and EXCELCON A880 are designed to prolong the open time as well as increase slip resistance to tile adhesive mortar.

Generally, open time is very important to give more time to attach the tile on the wall.

Since, modern tile is now become bigger and heavier, hence slip resistance is importantly required.
