Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) or cellulose gum is a cellulose derivative with carboxymethyl groups (-CH2-COOH) bound to some of the hydroxyl groups of the glucopyranose monomers that make up the cellulose backbone. It is often used as its sodium salt, sodium carboxymethyl cellulose. It used to be marketed under the name Tylose, a registered trademark of SE Tylose.
Carboxy Methyl Cellulose(CMC)is synthesized by the alkali-catalyzed reaction of cellulose with chloroacetic acid. The polar (organic acid) carboxyl groups render the cellulose soluble and chemically reactive. The functional properties of Fooding Carboxy Methyl Cellulose(CMC) depend on the degree of substitution of the cellulose structure (i.e., how many of the hydroxyl groups have taken part in the substitution reaction), as well as the chain length of the cellulose backbone structure and the degree of clustering of the carboxymethyl substituents.
Food and MedicinePrevent protein in acid milk from condensing, settling, and laminating. Due to its unusual smooth sugar paste state, after it dissolves, it makes the drink taste good and smooth.
Its good evenness and acid resistance provide the drink with excellent stability. Effectively improve the cracking or collapsing of flakes to dissolve the effective element.
Paper Making Grade
CMC is used in the paper industry for binding the ingredients, and for increasing the strength of paper. Some purified and technical grades are also used for smoothing the surface of the paper, which means better printability and quality.
CMC can be used with plaster and cement. The main objective is to prevent early freezing; that way, it becomes quite easy to work on plaster for a longer period.
Due to water-solubility, film-making ability, and binding characteristics, CMC is being used in the sizing of yarns in warping. Also, CMC with high viscosity levels is used in printing fabrics; either with sodium alginate or replacing it.
In the oil industry, CMC is being used together with barite bentonite, and clay in order to prepare drilling muds, which helps control suspension, and getting out the sand in the drilling process.
Glue and Adhesive Industry
By making use of water solubility and binding properties, CMC is used as glue for wallpaper applications and is also used in the leather industry too.
It is used in paints to control the flow property of paints.
CMC is used in the detergent industry widely due to its property of getting the dirt particles with the rinsing water. In cream detergents, it prevents the drying of the surface and CMC can hold the water (moisture) for a long time.

High-quality products can also be used in toothpaste, medicine, food, and other industrial sectors.
-- Usage: When preparing the solution, use warm water or cold water. Stir it until it is completely melted. Water multiple depends on different varieties and uses requirements.
