CMC carboxy methyl cellulose is a cellulose or cellulose step gum, a colorless or white powder, odorless, tasteless, with floating in water that cannot be fermented under normal conditions. In fact, it is a water-soluble anionic polymer made from cellulose.
What is CMC carboxy methyl cellulose?
It is one of the hydrochloric materials and is a derivative of the eter cellulose derivative, which is obtained from the decomposition of carboxymethyl groups instead of some hydroxyl groups. Carboxymethylcellulose is typically made from an alkaline cellulose reaction with sodium chloroacetate, which has a 7-degree reduction in food formulations and a 4 to 8-degree reduction in industrial applications.
Features of CMC carboxy methyl cellulose?
Due to its polymer structure, this material is used as a factor in improving the effects of moisture, a thickening and stabilizing agent for sanitary materials, as well as a thickener in cases where the goal is to control or increase viscosity.
Other properties of this material include that it dissolves in hot and cold water, improves rheological properties, and causes adhesion and strength. It is a diffuser, water-retaining agent, stabilizer, suspension agent, emulsifier, and layer-forming agent. It is also resistant to biological damage, heat, hydrolysis, and oxidation. Prevents the growth of crystals.
Application of CMC carboxy methyl cellulose?
It is used in two industrial and food grades in various industries, including food industries, in pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, for example in creams and lotions, in paints and resins, in textiles, in detergents and sanitizers, for example in soaps and In the formulation of toothpaste, in pottery and porcelain, in the production of tiles, ceramics, paper, cardboard, in drilling oil wells, in welding electrodes, in multi-layer boards, in leather, carpet and carpet industries, in pesticides and pesticides. , Used in adhesives, etc.
