Carboxymethyl Cellulose(CMC) for use in a variety of applications

CARBOXIMETYLCELLULOSE (CMC) used as thickener, stabilizer, tenacity strengthening agent, water retention agent, dispersing agent, binder, suspension, film-forming agent. Some uses: In the preparation of ice cream, desserts, bread, bolis, etc. This type of CMC is used as a thickener, stabilizer and water retention agent in the food industries. Storage: Store in a cool dry place; Do not store outdoors. The CMC is a hygroscopic solid that can absorb moisture from the environment, therefore the containers or bags must be kept closed. As soon as they are opened and partially consumed, it is necessary to close it again as tightly as possible.

CMC Powder

Carboxymethyl cellulose, also call CMC, it’s white or slightly yellow flocculent fiber powder or White powder, odorless, tasteless, non-toxicant anionic water-soluble polymer based on renewable cellulosic raw material.

Carboxymethyl cellulose-CMC in the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, oil, drilling, paper, textile, printing and dyeing industry, construction and other fields has been widely used in production.

CMC is soluble in water at any temperature. Because of its highly hygroscopic nature, CMC hydrates rapidly. Rapid hydration may cause agglomeration and lump formation when the CMC powder is introduced into water.

Lump creation can be eliminated by applying high agitation while the powder is added into the water or prelanding the CMC powder with other dry ingredients such as sugar before adding into water.



Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) or cellulose gum is one of the major ingredients widely used in food industry as thickener, stabilizer, and viscosity modifier in a large number of different types of foods including ice cream, frozen foods, and beverages.

Non-food application of CMC includes its usage in formulations for cleaning products such as detergents, rheology modifiers and co-binders for papermaking, and formulation of oil drilling solvents.

CMC can be used to stabilize palletized iron nanoparticles, which can further be utilized in the dichlorination of contaminated sub surfaces.

It may also be used as a polymeric matrix to form a composite with a crystalline nanofibril for the development of sustainable bio-based polymers. CMC can also bind with a hard carbon electrode for the fabrication of sodium ion-batteries.

CMC is also used as a thickening agent, for example, in the oil-drilling industry as an ingredient of drilling mud, where it acts as a viscosity modifier and water retention agent.

For the food and beverage industry, cellulose gum high purity grades provide multiple benefits such as improved mouthfeel and protein stabilization. Moreover, these grades can be used in various personal care and pharmaceutical applications.

Industrial applications such as paper surface treatment, fabric care, textiles, and ceramics take advantage of the flow control, water retention, and film-forming capabilities of our CMC.

In mining operations, CMC products are developed specifically for mineral flotation and depressants.

To control fluid loss and provide strong rheological control in the oilfield, our CMC extend the performance of water-based drilling additives.

CMC is used in batteries and battery storage systems as a binder in the anodes and to reinforce the separator.
