Application of NA-CMC (Sodium-carboxymethylcellulose, technical grade):

In gas-and-oil producing industry – CMC is a filtrate agent and serves to give rheological properties to drilling muds.

·         In mining industry – in floatation concentration of copper-nickel and sylvinite ore. 

  • In production of synthetic detergents and household chemicals – as a dispersing agent.
  • In paper industry – for hardening and for increasing paper printing quality.
  • In construction industry – in production of glues, paint-and-lacquer materials, dry building mixes, binder in ferroconcrete items production.
  • In textile industry – for making fibers wear-proof and flexible. 
  • In production of cosmetics and perfumes - as a thickener.

Application of PAC (polyanionic cellulose):


·         PAC-LV functioning as a filtrate agent is effective in fresh water mud as well as in salt-saturated mud.  

·         PAC-MV is used as a filtrate agent in mud, not influencing viscosity.  

·         PAC-HV is used for filtration and viscosity regulation of drilling mud.
