We are the sole producer of Bermocoll EHEC and Bermocoll MEHEC. In addition, we also offer CMC made from highly purified cellulose. Our well-known products include Akucell® , Bermocoll® , Bermocell™,Depramin® , Peridur® , Gabroil™, Gabrosa™ and Staflo® .

We have a unique technology base and profound experience of producing high-quality cellulose ethers. We offer reliable solutions for applications to industries such as building, construction, paint, food, healthcare, mining and oilfield.

We are the only producer in the world of Bermocoll EHEC (ethyl hydroxyethyl cellulose) and Bermocoll MEHEC (methyl ethyl hydroxyethyl cellulose). These are made from highly purified cellulose from wood or cotton linters via alkalization, ethoxylation and reaction with ethyl chloride and methyl chloride.

EHEC and MEHEC can also be reacted with longer chain hydrophobes, producing hydrophobically modified cellulose, used as associative thickeners.

In addition, we also offer CMC (Carboxymethyl cellulose) made from highly purified cellulose. CMC is also made via alkalization, followed by carboxymethylation with monochloroacetic acid (MCA).

For CMC food grade the process is followed by purification by washing with an ethanol water mixture.
