Industrial additive Carboxymethyl cellulose Powder Binder thickener
Sodium carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) is the largest and most widely
used, the most convenient products, commonly known as "industrial
An important feature of CMC is the formation of high viscosity
colloid solution, sticky, thickening, emulsifying, flow, shape,
water retention, protective colloid, film forming, acid resistance,
salt tolerance, suspension characteristics, physiological and
harmless, so in the food, pharmaceutical, chemical, petroleum,
textile, papermaking, widely used in the production of construction
and other fields.
1 . Used in textile, printing and dyeing industry. The textile
industry CMC as sizing agent for cotton, wool, silk, chemical
fiber, blended fabric sizing gauze.
2 . Used in paper industry.CMC in the paper industry can be used as
paper smoothing agent, sizing agent. In the paper pulp to add 0.1%
to 0.3% of CMC can make paper to enhance the tensile strength of
40% ~ 50%, the compressive strength of the rupture increased by
50%, kneading increased by 4 ~ 5 times.
3 . For the ceramic industry can be used as blank adhesive,
plasticizer, suspending agent, glaze color fixing agent.
4 . For the food industry. The food industry with high substitution
degree CMC for ice cream, canned, thickener speed cooking, beer
foam stabilizer, in the processing of jam, syrup, sherbet, snacks,
drinks and ice cream as a thickener, binder or shape agent.
5 . The pharmaceutical industry with proper viscosity CMC tablet
binder, disintegrant, suspension of the suspending agent.
