Micro Crystalline Cellulose is a mechanically
disintegrated level of D.P. Cellulose. It comprises
purified, de-polymerised, Micro Crystalline sub
micron size colloidal particles. It is produced
by treating Alfa Cellulose obtained as a pulp
from fibrous plants with minerals acid.
It is a white, odourless, tasteless, extra free
flowing powder which is relatively free from organic
and non-organic contaminants. It is metabolically
inert, and has excellent water absorptive, swelling
& dispersion properties, is insoluble in water,
dilute acid, common organic solvents and oils.
It is partially soluble in dilute alkali.
Rayon Grade wood pulp, the main raw material is
hydrolyzed under very carefully controlled conditions.
After Hydrolysis, specific inclusion of hydrophobic
agents is done. This is followed by thorogh washing
with de-mineralised water. The depathogenised
slurry prepared is pumped for Spray Drying and
finally blended and packed.
