Sodium CMS

Carboxy methyl starch (CMS) is an important modified starch with unique properties due to the presence of negatively charged functional group (CH2COO-). This modification yields starch with decreased gelatinization temperature, increased solubility and improved storage stability.

CMS has used for purposes of thickening, stabilization, water preserving; in pharmaceutical industry & also in textile industry as thickening agent in textile printing paste and also as sizing agent especially for hydrophilic yarn.

Another closed related material is Carboxy methyl cellulose (CMC), which has been used intensively in similar industries. However, CMS not only has many advantages over CMC, but comes with a much lower price. Therefore, CMS is poising to replace CMC in many of industrial applications as follows;

In Oil field : Used for fluid-loss control in drilling mud, drill-in, completion and work over fluids.

In Textile industry : Is ready to replace traditional alginate with about half of the cost.

In Construction : Can be used for water preserving in concrete paste and color paste, as adhesive in concrete, sand, and in adhesive layer for wall paper installation.

In Pharmaceutical : May replace Carboxy methyl cellulose (CMC) as disintegrate in solid oral dosage manufacturing.
In Food: Used in such food varieties as jelly, juice, ice cream, canned food, yogurt, butter, bread, noodle for fresh perseverance, etc. Also in Other industries like laundry, toothpaste; paper Industry, environmental protection, and tobacco.

We offer different grades of CMS products for various applications as mentioned above. We will also custom manufacture your desired products with specific requirement of degree of substitution and viscosity.
