CMC for Paint application

Celopro® C series Carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) is one of the most versatile of all water-soluble hydrocolloids and has a number of important properties making it useful in many industrial applications.

CMC is a multifunctional hydrocolloid and has the ability to impart several important characteristics to a formulation through its mode of action.

Properties of Celopro CMC:

Easy dissolve in cold and hot water, stable viscosity.

Possess good emulsion and solid dispersing capabilities.

Form firm and transparent coating.

Not easy to deteriorate.

Not dissolved in fat and organic solvents.

No adverse health effects to human body.

Stable quality in high purity products.

Different D.S. and viscosity products.

Application Properties:

As a protective colloid, increase stability ofthe emulsion-polymer system in a wide pH range.

Help pigments dispersed into coatings.

Impart excellent effects of adhesion by coloring matter.

Increase the viscosity

Increase leveling property.

Improve spattering resistance and hangingresistance.

Storage and Safety instructions

When stored in closed containers, or in its original packaging in a dry place at room temperature, CELOPRO can be kept for a long time. In the case of high viscosity grades, a slow loss of viscosity can be measured after lengthy storage (>1 year). CELOPRO absorbs water from moist air. Once opened, container must be resealed and kept tightly closed.

Cellulose ethers constitute a dust explosion hazard. Dust formation and deposits must be kept to a minimum so that no ignitable dust/air mixtures can form. Ignition sources such as naked flames, hot surfaces, spark and static electricity should be avoided. CELOPRO starts to decompose at about 200°C. Its ignition temperature is >360°C. It burns easily and the fire may spread.
