1. Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose(CMC) for Ceramic/Porcelain Industry
Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose is widely used in ceramic industry.
Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose can be used as excipient and intensifier of the blank in ceramic industry, Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose can enhance the blank, a breakage rate if producer added suitable quantity of into the blank. In ceramic material, CMC can improve the glaze slurry, a flow and increase the smoothness and improve the quality of glazed surface.
Our brand “YUYU” CMC is taken as blank adhesive, plasticizer, glaze suspending agent and color fixing agent in porcelain/ceramic industry. Adding CMC to blanks will enhance blank adhesiveness (making it easily formed), have no residue, improve mechanical strength and reduce blank breaking rate. Adding CMC to glaze will enhance the binding of blanks and glaze, promoting glaze dispersion.
