Carboxymethyl cellulose CMC-Toothpaste grade

Carboxymethyl cellulose CMC-Toothpaste grade

Short Description:

Carboxymethylation reaction is one of etherification technologies. After Carboxymethylation of cellulose, carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) is obtained. Its aqueous solution has the functions of thickening, film-forming, bonding, water retention, colloidal protection, emulsification and suspension. It is widely used in petroleum, food, medicine, textile and papermaking industries. It is one of the most important cellulose ethers.With our long-term expertise in chemical products trading, do we provide you with professional advice on products and tailored solutions for your specific purpose. We are happy to help you choose the materials suitable for you.Just click to find the applications in your industry: CMC in food, petroleum, printing and dyeing, ceramics, toothpaste, floating beneficiation, battery, coating, putty powder and papermaking.

Toothpaste grade CMC model: TH9 TH10 TH11 TVH9 TM9
With the increasing improvement of people's living standards, people have higher and higher requirements for daily necessities. As a necessity of daily life, the use value of toothpaste is no longer only reflected in the simple function of cleaning the mouth, but gradually turns to functional and health-care toothpaste. To this end, many new varieties have been developed: drugs, anti acid, hemostasis and full effect toothpastes. This puts forward new requirements for the quality of CMC, one of the main components of toothpaste production.

CMC-Application In Toothpaste

1. Characteristics of CMC for toothpaste:
- Good rheology and thixotropy;
- Acid resistance: it can withstand the range of pH value 2-4;
- Salt resistance: it can be used in the paste added with various inorganic salts, and the viscosity of the paste will not degrade significantly with the passage of time;
- Heat resistance: it has good and stable heat resistance effect;
- High transparency: due to the high uniformity of substitution, less free fiber and high transparency of the paste;
- Strong anti microbial ability: the paste has strong anti enzyme performance due to its good substitution uniformity
2. Application characteristics of CMC in toothpaste:
- It has good compatibility with various raw materials in toothpaste and fine paste;
- No water separation, no shelling, no coarsening;
- Good stability and proper consistency. It can give the toothpaste a particularly comfortable taste;
- Ensure the storage stability of the paste in the tube and prolong the shelf life;
- The extrusion dispersion of the paste is good;
- Good paste appearance and strip forming performance;
- CMC solution has better rheological and thixotropic properties.
