2. Sodium CMC used in liquid detergent

Sodium CMC can be used in industrial liquid detergent, laundry detergent and dish soap detergent. Industrial liquid detergent requires purity more than 75% and viscosity less than 800mPa.s. Laundry detergent and dish wash detergent require high purity above 99.5%.
