BERMOCOLL® Cellulose Ethers

Wood and plant fibers are mostly made up of cellulose which is a natural polymer. When we make BERMOCOLL® the cellulose reacts with the substituents, such as methyl, ethyl and hydroxyethyl. This process, called etherfication, makes BERMOCOLL® water soluble.

BERMOCOLL® may be used in many different applications. By combining the parts of the substituents in various ways we are able to customize the properties of BERMOCOLL® to fit individual needs.
We divide 
BERMOCOLL® into two different categories depending on the way the BERMOCOLL® is customized. You can see the simplified chemical structures of these two categories of Bermocoll in the diagram to the right.
We want everything in which 
BERMOCOLL® is used to last a long time. It is a very important component in building products and we add it in order to increase water retention, to give a suitable consistency and to improve adhesion in cement and gypsum-based systems.
BERMOCOLL® is a non-ionic cellulose ether. We produce it in varying grades of viscosity in order to meet the solubility requirements of the applications. The grades are available in several different particle sizes such as powder, fine powder and extra fine powder. We can also tailor-make BERMOCOLL® to meet individual needs and specifications.
