Carboxymethyl Tamarind (CMT or CMTKP)

Carboxymethyl Tamarind Kernel Powder (CMT or CMTKP) is an anionic water soluble polymer; it is derived from Tamarind Kernel Powder (TKP), which is made cold water soluble by a chemical reaction (Carboxymethylation). Cold water solubility is achieved by introducing carboxymethyl groups (-CH2-COOH) along the polysaccharide chain, which makes hydration of the molecule possible in cold water. CMT is bio-compatible, bio-degradable, non- toxic & modified natural polymer. CAS NO.: 68647-15-4 EICS NO.: 271-943-5 APPLICATIONS CMT widely used as textile printing thickener. CMT also used for sizing in jute yarn & cotton warp. CMT has extensive use in paper & explosive industry where it is used as viscosity builder. CMT used as a core binder in foundries & mosquito coils. CMT used as a sizing material in paper industry. CMT very effectively used these days by oil drilling companies as soil stabilizer. CMT has numerous other applications & its low cost gives it an edge over other thickening agents.
