CMC Products – PROPERTIES
Cellogen® CMC is a line of high purity sodium carboxymethylcellulose polymers. The “HP” grades of Cellogen CMC meet or exceed all FDA standards for use in foods, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. Cellogen CMC also has application in textiles, paper, ceramics, animal feed, and building materials.
Cellogen 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. Cellogen 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
Cellogen CMC is available in many grades in order to serve the vast and diverse market applications for CMC. The variety of Cellogen CMC grades are based on:
- Degree of Substitution
- Particle Size
Cellogen 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.
Cellogen CMC is packaged in multi-wall paper bag with an inner heat sealed polyethylene liner. Net weight is 50 pounds per bag.
