CMC is an anionic water soluble polymer derived from the world’s most abundant polymer – cellulose. It functions as a thickener, binder, stabilizer, protective colloid, suspending agent, gelling agent, and flow control agent. This makes it suitable for use in a variety of industries.

We have produced carboxymethyl cellulose, CMC, since 1948 and our brands are recognized worldwide. They provide dependability and value to a wide range of industries.

For the food and beverage industry, Akucell® is a trusted brand name that delivers the right consistency and taste. Products in our Depramin® range are used as depressants in flotation systems, and our Peridur® brands provide binding and pelletizing benefits to mining and other industries.

In addition, our Staflo®, Gabroil® and Gabrosa® products represent a comprehensive range of CMC and PAC grades to control fluid loss and provide rheology to the oil and gas drilling industry.
