TEXTURECEL™ 40000 PA has similar properties as 40000 GA, except this is a powder grade.


Product Overview

TEXTURECEL™ 40000 PA is a high viscosity water-soluble cellulosic polymer similar to TEXTURECEL™ 40000 GA, except it comes in powder form for faster water dissolution. It is based on sodium carboxymethyl cellulose and it  yields a viscosity of 40,000 cP at low level of use.


TEXTURECEL™ 40000 PA is ordinarily utilized in applications that require a high viscosity and prefers powder over the granular form to mix with solids. It is commonly used in agriculture, ceramics, coatings, cleaners, gel packs and textiles.

  • Agriculture: TEXTURECEL™ 40000 PA can be used in adjuvants, pesticides, and other crop protection applications. It provides rheology and homogeneity to spray products. It also acts as a stabilizer and suspension aid.

  • Ceramics: TEXTURECEL™ 40000 PA can be used in ceramic glaze application for improved binding, thickening, stability, and gloss. It also can be used in clay bodies to improve green strength and plasticity.

  • Coatings and Inks: TEXTURECEL™ 40000 PA is usually used in coatings and inks for its high viscosity and green profile. It functions as a thickener, rheology modifier and suspension aid.

  • Gel Packs and Absorbents: TEXTURECEL™ 40000 PA is used food packaging cool packs for its non-toxic profile and high gel formation.

  • TEXTURECEL™ 40000 PA can also be used in cleaners, textiles, and other applications as a thickener and stabilizer.
