Carboxymethyl ether cellulose is used in drilling muds, in detergents as a soil-suspending agent, in resin emulsion paints, adhesives, printing inks, textile sizes, as protective colloid in general. As stabilizer in foods. It is used in pharmaceuticals as a suspending agent, tablet excipient, viscosity-increasing agent. Low viscosity is usually used in thin aqueous solutions.
Viscosity is both concentration and temperature dependent. As the temperaure increases, the viscosity decreases. As the concentration increases, the viscosity increases.
