Detergents Grade CMC. Technical Specification for Sodium CMC – Detergent Grade: Applications: SCMC is used in detergents as an anti soil redeposition agent, particle suspender, skin protector, color retention agent, stabilizer, homogeniser, texture protector.
Critical micelle concentration (CMC) is defined as the concentration of detergents above which micelles are spontaneously formed. The CMC is important in biology because at concentrations above it the detergents form complexes with lipophilic proteins.The exact molecular weight influences the CMC.
CMC is used as a lubricant in artificial tears. CMC is also used as a thickening agent, for instance, in the oil-drilling industry as an ingredient of drilling mud, where it acts as a viscosity modifier and water retention agent.
Detergent Grade CMC can be used in liquid, paste detergent, acts as stabilizing agent and thickening agent.CMC can effectively prevent washes from becoming contaminated after being washed by synthetic detergent when it used in detergent powder.
CMC is used extensively in gluten free and reduced fat food products. In laundry detergents, it is used as a soil suspension polymer designed to deposit onto cotton and other cellulosic fabrics, creating a negatively charged barrier to soils in the wash solution. CMC is used as a lubricant in artificial tears.
Proper ways of storage include:
- Store in a cool, dry, clean, ventilated environment.
- Since production date, a preservation period should not exceed 3 years for the industrial product.
- The products should be prevented from water and package bag damaging during transportation.
