Sodium carboxymethyl cellulose, an organic substance, is a carboxymethylated derivative of cellulose and is the predominant ionic cellulose gum. CMC-Na is a white fibrous or granular powder, odourless, tasteless, hygroscopic and easily dispersed in water to form a transparent colloidal solution. CMC for Washing Industry is very suitable.
CMC Application description
CMC is widely used as slurry treatment agent for oil industry, synthetic detergent, organic detergent aid, textile printing and dyeing sizing agent. Water-soluble gelatinous tackifier for daily-use chemical products, tackifier and emulsifier for pharmaceutical industry. Thickener for food industry, adhesive for ceramic industry, industrial paste, sizing agent for paper industry, etc.
It is used as a flocculant in water treatment, mainly for wastewater sludge treatment, and can improve the solid content of the filter cake. Sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is also a kind of thickening agent.Because of its good functional properties make it in the food industry has been widely used. It also to a certain extent to promote the rapid and healthy development of the food industry. For example, because it has a certain thickening and emulsifying effect. It can be used to stabilise yoghurt drinks and increase the viscosity of yoghurt systems; Because it has a certain hydrophilic and rehydrophobic effect. It can be used to improve the eating quality of pasta such as bread and steamed buns, extend the shelf life of pasta products and enhance the taste; Because it has a certain gel effect. It is conducive to the better formation of food gel. So it can be used in the manufacture of jelly and jam. Therefore, edible grade CMC-Na is very commonly used as an ideal food additive in food production in the food industry.CMC for Washing Industry is very suitable.
CMC has excellent properties in detergent applications.
1. High and uniform substitution and good transparency. 2. Good dispersion in water and good anti-resorption properties. 3. Super high viscosity, good stability, excellent thickening and emulsifying effect.
