Croscarmellose Sodium and Microcrystalline Cellulose are highly functional and efficient raw materials

Aug 10, 2012

Microcrystalline CelluloseParchem – fine & specialty chemicals is the premier supplier for Croscarmellose Sodium and Microcrystalline Cellulose.  Both Croscarmellose Sodium and Microcrystalline Cellulose have a wide range of uses from being used as a binder and disintegrant in pharmaceuticals to various industrial uses in plastics and paints.


Due to its excellent ability to be used as a bulking agent and its use in direct compression of many drugs, Microcrystalline Cellulose has greatly reduced capital and labor costs for manufacturing. It has also been shown to significantly reduce the amount of material and equipment used.  New developments in scientific research studies have shown Microcrystalline Cellulose to be able to be used in a large range of uses such as;  tablets and capsules, multiparticulates and matrix tablets, oral liquids and topical preparations as well as chewable and mouth dissolving tablets.


Much like Microcrystalline Cellulose, Croscarmellose Sodium has a wide range of uses but is particularly common in pharmaceutical formulations. Croscarmellose Sodium is a cross linked polymer of Carboxymethyl Cellulose Sodium. By being cross linked, Croscarmellose Sodium becomes an insoluble and extremely absorbent material giving it excellent water wicking capabilities. As far as industrial applications for Croscarmellose Sodium, the material works very well and is a popular raw material used in the production of adhesives. Having a strong water intake, long fiber length which provides efficient fluid channeling and its hydrophilic nature have made Croscarmellose Sodium an ideal fit for Adhesive manufacturing.
