WALOCEL™ CRT 100 GA is a carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) in granular form with a low viscosity of 100 cP. It provides a crystal clear solution free of fibers.
WALOCEL™ CRT 100 GA is a low viscosity CMC. This granular grade can be added directly to water, and has a slow agitation. Walocel is used as binder, thickener, gelling agent, stabilizer, emulsifier, crystallization inhibitor, protective colloid, film former, plasticizer and provide green strength.
