In the ceramics industry there are different applications for Mare Niklacell CMC which is used in the ceramic mass, engobes, glazes, and the colour.
The benefits of the addition of Niklacell CMC is manifold, with increases in workability of the ceramic product and prevention of typical issues with production of this type of material, such as crack formation, warping, and bracing.
Niklacell CMC is used in the mass in the green product as a binding Agent; its addition helps to increase the water retention characteristics of the ceramics during production.
Using Niklacell CMC in engobes and glazes will bring you advantages in the dewatering process, it helps you to avoid for example crack formation, glaze shrinking, glaze chipping.
Our Niklacell CMC brings higher stabilisation of the product, more plasticity to the glaze, avoids the shrinking of the glaze through the firing process and inhibits the quelling of the ceramic body.
Niklacell CMC has a positive influence on the viscosity, the dilatance, the thixotropy and also the film strength.
We offer you our Niklacell CMC grades for your specific requirements. Our target is to provide you a technical and cost effective solution.
