CMC Products – PROPERTIES
DKS-S CMC is a line of high purity sodium carboxymethylcellulose polymers. The high purity grades of DKS-S CMC meet or exceed all FDA standards for use in foods, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. DKS-S CMC also has application in textiles, paper, ceramics, animal feed, and building materials.
DKS-S CMC has many unique features. An especially important one is the consistency and uniformity from one production lot to the next. This results in a line of CMC products with very tight viscosity ranges, degree of substitution, and particle size for each grade.
DKS-S CMC can provide the following functions:
- Thickening agent
- Protective Colloid (Has wide compatibility with other gums / stabilizers)
- Water retention agent
- Rheology or flow control agent
- Resistant to heat, enzyme and bacterial decomposition
DKS-S CMC is available in many grades in order to serve the vast and diverse market applications for CMC.
The variety of DKS-S CMC grades are based on:
- Degree of Substitution
- Particle Size
DKS-S CMC is a powdered product that is characterized by very rapid solubility and viscosity yield. Because of its extremely fast hydration, it is normally dry blended with other ingredients or slurried in a non-aqueous liquid before mixing in water. If lumps or “fish-eyes” result from mixing, continued mild agitation will disperse them.
DKS-S CMC is packaged in multi-wall paper bag with an inner heat sealed polyethylene liner. Net weight is 25 kilograms per bag.
