WALOCEL™ CRT 40000 PA is a high viscosity water-soluble cellulosic polymer similar to WALOCEL™ CRT 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.
WALOCEL™ CRT 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: WALOCEL™ CRT 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: WALOCEL™ CRT 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: WALOCEL™ CRT 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: WALOCEL™ CRT 40000 PA is used food packaging cool packs for its non-toxic profile and high gel formation.
WALOCEL™ CRT 40000 PA can also be used in cleaners, textiles, and other applications as a thickener and stabilizer.
