Do You Know How to Use CMC?

1. Understand sodium carboxymethyl cellulose

Sodium carboxymethyl cellulose can also be called sodium carboxymethyl cellulose, carboxymethyl cellulose, the English abbreviation is CMC. Sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is currently the most widely used cellulose type in the world. Sodium carboxymethyl cellulose has many advantages, so it has been widely used in many fields. The correct CMC use method can play a very good role in promoting. Once it is not the correct CMC use method, not only will it fail to achieve the desired effect, but will waste a lot of materials. If it is a large-scale production, it will cause a lot of loss. .

2. CMC dissolution method

When using CMC, we will first observe that the sodium carboxymethyl cellulose product is in powder form. In addition to being directly mixed with the dry powder, its use often requires dissolution to form a colloidal solution before use. In order to achieve the desired effect, it is necessary to select pure water and dissolve it in a mechanical stirring device. When using CMC, the specific operation is to start the mixing device, add an appropriate amount of pure water to it, and then slowly sprinkle the CMC powder into the mixing device. This can effectively prevent CMC from agglomerating and agglomerating during dissolution.

When CMC is used, the stirring time and the time for CMC to completely melt are not consistent. They are two concepts. Generally speaking, the stirring time is much shorter than the time required for CMC to completely melt. The time required for both depends on the specific situation. The basis for determining the stirring time is: when CMC is uniformly dispersed in water and there is no obvious large agglomerate object, the stirring can be stopped, and the CMC and water can infiltrate and merge with each other in a static state.
