Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose Supplier Manufacturer of CMC Powder
Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose (also referred as CMC and
Carboxymethyl Cellulose) can briefly be described as an anionic
water-soluble polymer produced from naturally occurring cellulose
by etherification, substituting the hydroxyl groups with
carboxymethyl groups on the cellulose chain.
Being readily dissolved in hot or cold water, CMC Powder can be produced in different chemical and physical properties.
These properties can affect the performance of the product (CMC) in
the application, furthermore can be essential for optimizing the
There are a number of parameters which define the properties of the
√ Purity (active CMC content): inevitably CMC powder is produced with by products that are
sodium salts which comes in the product Sodium Carboxymethyl
Cellulose content in the product is the purity.
√ Viscosity: one of the most interesting characteristics of the CMC powder is
the viscosity which can be from low to high. It is measured mostly
by digital viscometers at certain temperatures in different
solution rates; such as 1%, 2% or 4%.
√ Degree of Substituion: is the average number of sodium carboxymethyl groups per
anhydroglucose unit on the cellulose back bone. This parameter in
some application areas is quite important to control in the
√ Physical form: the CMC powder can be produced in fine powders to dust-free
Thanks to its versatility, CMC can provide different functions and
that is what it owes for being used in a range of industries.
√ Solubility √ Rheology √ Adsorption on surfaces
These main characteristics help our CMC provide control over
properties of the aqueous systems by establishing effects of
√ Thichening √ Binding √ Film forming √ Stabilizing
√ Protective colloid √ Water retention √ Thixotropy
As coagulant, water retaining, thickener and binder, CMC is also
used in detergent, paint, carpet gum, mosquito coil incense,
tobacco, electric welding, mining, battery, printing and others.
Specifications: Having such versatility, here at SKYHIL we are pleased to provide guidance and support on chosing the
correct product from our range.
Fine powders to dust-free granules
Degree of Substituion
As per request, we can produce extrem high DS CMC and PAC
