●Anionic cellulose derivative
Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC)

●Non-ionic cellulose derivative
Hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC)

●Microfibrillated fibers  CELISH®

The raw material for CMC is natural pulp. Our CMC, which is very safe for the environment and for human health, is used for poultices, toothpaste, and various other medical and personal care applications.
Our HEC, which is odorless, has been used for various medical and personal care applications because its aqueous solution exhibits outstanding fluidity.
Because it is composed of microfibrillated cellulose, our CELISH product demonstrates excellent water retention, improved tensile strength, and binding strength. It is used for facial masks and other cosmetic products.

  • Our CMC has been adopted for use in the anode plates of lithium-ion batteries. Recently, lithium-ion secondary batteries (LIBs) have been widely adopted in power electrical and electronic devices.
