Usages of CMC Carboxymethyl cellulose

Usages of CMC carboxymethyl cellulose in Construction Industry

There is a widely usages of CMC carboxymethyl cellulose.It is widely uses construction industry especially cement and building materials because it forms as a stabilizer and hydrophilic agent. It improves the dispersion of sand in the cement, and intensifies its adhesive action. It is also used as glue in upholstery.

Usages of CMC carboxymethyl cellulose in Detergents

This product is widely using in cleaning industry. Because of having high quality, it uses in soaps and detergents. It acts as an inhibitor of the redeposition of grease in the fabric after it has been removed by the detergent.Adding carboxymethyl cellulose in detergent has the function of preventing reattachment of dirt. The working principle is that negatively charged dirt granule and charged carboxymethyl cellulose molecular absorbing on fabrics has mutual electrostatic repulsion.

Usages of CMC carboxymethyl cellulose in Paper Industry

CMC coating reduces the consumption of wax in waxed paper and paperboard, ensuring less penetration of the wax into paper. Similarly, the consumption of printing ink is reduced as a result of the surface shine it gives. In addition, because it smoothes the surface, it makes paper more resistant to grease and improves the union between fibers, thereby improving the color of the paper. It is also used as a dispersant aid in the extrusion of fibers from the pulp and to prevent their flocculation.Every different kind of usages of CMC carboxhymethyl cellulose is differs from each other.

Usages of CMC carboxymethyl cellulose in Agriculture

This material acts as a suspending agent in water-based spIt also functions as glue to attach the insecticide to the leaves of plants after application. Sometimes, it is used as an aid in the deterioration of certain fertilizers that are highly polluting.

Usages of CMC carboxymethyl cellulose in Adhesives

CMC using is added to various compositions of glues and adhesives that are used for almost any material. It is widely used in the leather industry. Adhesives that join wood to other wood have been effectively made by combining  with starch and phenol formaldehyde.

Usages of CMC carboxymethyl cellulose in Cosmetics

CMC is used in dental impression materials, and in toothpastes and gels. This water-soluble ether serves as a thickener, stabilizer, suspending agent and former of films in creams, lotions, or shampoos, and is widely used in hair care products.

Usages of CMC carboxymethyl cellulose in Paint

It is used in oil paints and varnishes. It acts as a thickener and suspends the pigment in the fluid.Extremely low ash content, quite stable and good in dispersion as emulsion thickener, able to improve coating leveling property and sparkling and sagging resistance, thus improving construction performance of the coating.

Usages of CMC carboxymethyl cellulose in Plastics and Ceramics

The main usages of CMC in the plastics industry is to help increase the viscosity of plastics such as latex.The majority of water-soluble ethers are used to join pieces of porcelain. They have good baking properties and this product solutions create very little ash.

Usages of CMC carboxymethyl cellulose in Textiles Industry

Crude CMC is used as sizing agent for textile industry. CMC is also used in combination with starch in laundry operations. To give a better finish to fabrics in the manufacturing process, the fabric is impregnated with CMC and is then treated with acid and heat. It is also a very effective agent in fabric printing and as a thickening agent in paints and textile varnishes.

Usages of CMC carboxymethyl cellulose in Pharmaceuticals

Usages of this material in coat tablets  provides with high degrees of purity and low viscosity. It is insoluble in the acidic environment of the stomach but soluble in the basic medium of the intestine. It is also used for form gels, to transport the drug, to disintegrate tablets and as a stabilizer for suspensions, emulsions, sprays and bio-adhesive tablets which attach internally to the mucus of a body part.

Usages of CMC carboxymethyl cellulose in Food

The usages of CMC in food as an auxiliary agent in the churning of ice cream, creams and dairy products, as an auxiliary to form gels in gelatins and puddings, and as a thickener in salad dressings and fillings. It is also used as suspending agent in fruit juices, as a protective colloid in emulsions and mayonnaise, as a protective agent to cover the surface of fruits and as a stabilizer in ready- to- bake products. Because it is not metabolized by the human body, it has been approved for use in foods that are low in calories.

Usages of CMC carboxymethyl cellulose in Medicine

The most innovative usages of CMC are in the area of medicine. CMC solutions are used to form gels that are used in heart, thoracic and cornea surgery. In thorax operations, the lungs are stapled and then covered with a solution of CMC to prevent air leaks and fluid ingress. In the field of orthopedics, CMC solutions are used in lubricating the joints of the bones, most often in the wrists, knees and hips. The fluid is injected into these joints to prevent erosion, swelling and possible destruction of the cartilage attached to bones.

Usages of CMC carboxymethyl cellulose in Other Applications

The usages of the CMC Carboxhymethly cellulose in the manufacture of diapers and sanitary products of this type. Because it is hydrophilic, CMC helps gelatinize liquid and promotes retention.
