TEXTURECEL™ CRT 30000 GA is an anionic water-soluble cellulosic polymer. It is based on a granular form sodium carboxymethyl cellulose to provide a viscosity of 30,000 cP at only a 2% add level. The product is commonly used in gel packs for its non-toxicity, food-grade approval, and gel formation capability.
TEXTURECEL™ CRT 30000 GA is an ideal polymer for gel form products such as ice packs and food packaging packs. It also provides relatively high viscosity which is suitable for batteries, ceramics, cleaners, and coatings when a high level of thickening is required.
Gel Packs and Absorbents: TEXTURECEL™ CRT 30000 GA is ideal for absorbent pads, gel and cool packs for its non-toxic profile and high gel formation especially when food contact approval is needed.
Ceramics: TEXTURECEL™ CRT 30000 GA is commonly used in glazes, tiles and clay bodies for thickening, plasticity, and green strength.
Cleaning Solutions: TEXTURECEL™ CRT 30000 GA is utilized in detergents and cleaners for higher viscosity yield and improved rheology.
Coatings and Inks: TEXTURECEL™ CRT 30000 GA is an economical alternative to synthetic thickeners for coatings and inks when natural thickener is preferred.
