WALOCEL™ CRT 40000 GA is a high viscosity water-soluble cellulosic polymer. It is based on a granular form sodium carboxymethyl cellulose and it provides a viscosity of 40,000 cP in a 2% aqueous solution. The product is utilized when high viscosity, rheology and green strength are required.
WALOCEL™ CRT 40000 GA can be used in gel packs, absorbent pads, ceramics, coatings and paint strippers. It is preferred in high viscosity systems with a low toxicity profile.
Gel Packs and Absorbents: WALOCEL™ CRT 40000 GA is regularly used in absorbent pads, gel, and cool packs to provide non-toxic and high-density gel formation. It is also preferred over other polymer chemistries when green profile and food contact approval are required such as food packaging and medical application.
Ceramics: WALOCEL™ CRT 40000 GA can be used in ceramic glaze application for improved thickening, stability, and gloss. It also used in ceramic tiles to improve plasticity and cracking resistance.
Coatings and Inks: WALOCEL™ CRT 40000 GA is a natural cellulosic thickener that can yield high viscosity at a low level of use in general and green coatings.
