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%).
