CELLQ® is a modified cellulose ether dedicated to achieve the best possible performance in many applications. It is developed and manufactured by HSH Chemie in Poland. Due to its chemical and physical parameters, it provides excellent water retention, extended open time, enhanced sag resistance or reduced stickiness to tools, depending on the grade. We are able to provide commercialised grades as follow, but the portfolio of the products develops daily, so please contact us for more information.
