A p p l i c a t i o n s
Anomera produces high quality cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) and cellulose microbeads. Our carboxylated-CNC, known as DextraCel® Nano HS, is available in liquid suspension or redispersible powder form, while our microbeads, DextraCel Micro LP are provided as a dry powder. Additionally, we offer ChromaPur™, our cosmetic-grade cellulose microbead product.
Concrete & DryMix Cement
Anomera is currently developing DextraCel™ Nano HS as a functional additive for use in various cementitious applications. DextraCel™ changes the cement hydration at the nanoscale, giving the potential to improve the fresh properties, mechanical performance and durability of concrete. Dosage is under of 0.1 wt.% relative to the weight of binder, making DextraCel™ both economical and environmentally beneficial to the concrete industry.
Anomera’s ChromaPur™ cellulose fine powder is a performance enhancing, safe and biodegradable alternative to microplastics and silica particles used in make-up and skin care products. The ChromaPur™ product line offers both sensorial and optical fine powders which are exclusively distributed worldwide by CRODA. For more information visit www.croda.com.
Paints & Coatings
The paints and coatings sectors seek new ways to introduce high-performance, low-cost and sustainably-sourced materials. Anomera’s DextraCel™ Nano and Micro products are multi-functional, all-natural, cellulose additives to enhance mechanical performance, alter haptics and optical properties, and introduce other benefits to various coatings products.
Polymers & Composites
DextraCel™ can add strength and performance to various polymers and composites to enable lighter, stronger, and longer lasting materials. New benefits can be expected by combining classic polymers and structural composites with nano-dispersible materials. Anomera’s DextraCel™ Nano products are best used in aqueous applications, while DextraCel™ Micro may be used in both aqueous and anhydrous compositions.
