Applications

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.

WALOCEL™ CRT High Purity, Water-Soluble Binder and Thickener

As highly purified polymers that can be dissolved at any temperature, WALOCEL™ CRT polymers provide ultra-clear solutions, and achieve consistent high quality results. They are sodium carboxymethylcellulose (NaCMC) polymers widely used as water-soluble binders and viscosity modifiers. WALOCEL™ CRT polymers are utilized in a broad range of industrial and consumer facing applications. WALOCEL™ CRT products differentiate themselves from standard CMC grades by having high purity with low salt content levels (below 0.5%).
