In ceramics and constructor industry, CMC acts as thickener. It is a good agent to stabilize, retain moisture. It is useful to make the material viscoid and less-gelatin
1 CMC for ceramics features uniform distribution of substituent (carboxy methyl group) on the cellulose backbone. It produces fewer gel granules in glaze formulation.
2 It contains no colored impurity and is 100% combustible under firing condition, to ensure clean ceramic glaze.
3 It can stabilize physical and chemical property of glaze formulation.
4 It can improve glaze adhesion and reduce glaze layer.
5 It facilitates formation of a smooth dense glaze layer.
6 It can improve the rheological property of glaze formulation.
7 The glaze viscosity is proportional to the concentration of CMC added.
