Comparison of Instant and Ordinary Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose

Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose is divided into various types of specifications according to the different use requirements of various industries, such as instant type and ordinary type. According to different properties, there are granular and powder, etc. There will be some differences in the production process as well as using methods between different types of CMC.

  1. Production process:
    The former instant sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is not affected by the production process, while the application of the latter is limited by the process in the production.
  2. Transparency:
    The transparency of instant sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is better; the common sodium carboxymethyl cellulose has agglomerates during the dissolution process, so the transparency is poor.
  3. Solubility:
    The instant carboxymethyl cellulose sodium dissolves completely in 1-3 minutes, without agglomeration; while the solubility of the ordinary CMC takes more than 1 hour to dissolve completely.
  4. Uniformity:
    After the instant product is dissolved, the product quickly reaches a uniform state, while the product floats on the solution or the aggregated lumps are suspended in the solution after the ordinary CMC is dissolved.

The instant carboxymethyl cellulose sodium is superior to the ordinary type in many aspects. The main feature is that it dissolves quickly. But it is not suitable for all kinds of products. However, in actual production, enterprises should choose the instant type or the ordinary type according to the specific use requirements. Believe that the suitable CMC is the best to the final product.
