KimaCell® CMC TD5000 sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is white or yellowish fibrous powder. It is non-toxic, odorless, and easily soluble in cold and hot water to become a transparent viscous solution. When using it, it should be soaked with a small amount of water, and then Add water and stir to prepare a solution of the desired concentration. CMC can be used as an anti-settling agent, emulsifier, dispersant, leveling agent, and adhesive for coatings. It can make the solid content of the coating evenly distributed in the solvent, so that the coating does not delaminate for a long time. In the textile industry, it is used as a sizing agent, a thickener for printing and dyeing paste, textile printing and stiffening finishing.

KimaCell® CMC TD5000 sodium carboxymethyl cellulose In the textile industry, it is used as a sizing agent, a thickener for printing and dyeing paste, textile printing and stiffening finishing. When used as a sizing agent, it can improve solubility and viscosity, and is easy to desizing; as a stiffening agent, its dosage is above 95%; when used as a sizing agent, the strength and bendability of the size film are significantly improved, and CMC is effective for most fibers All have adhesiveness, which can improve the bonding between fibers, and the stability of its viscosity can ensure the uniformity of sizing, thereby improving the efficiency of weaving. It can also be used as a finishing agent for textiles, especially for permanent anti-wrinkle finishing, which brings durable changes to fabrics.
