Mare’s focus on high quality and consistency is one of the reasons we are recognised as a key supplier to the textile industry.
During many of the fabric manufacturing processes Carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) is used as a binding and thickening agent, especially in the arbitration of cotton and polyester blends. The CMC helps to control the consistency and fluidity of colloidal solutions, preventing the build-up of excess colloids.
In weaving, CMC works as a sizing agent providing water resistant properties and increasing printability.
In Niklasdorf, Austria, Mare remains one of the few producers of CMC (Carboxymethylcellulose) in Europe. CMC is one of the most commonly used thickeners and binding agents used in industry today. Mare’s range of Niklacell CMC’s includes both purified and technical grades able to meet the toughest of technical specifications.
Mare is also the producer of a wide range of other sizing agents used in the textile market, including Rosin and AKD (Alkyl Ketene Dimer).
Polyacrylates also play a significant part in industry used as acrylic resins or for scale control.
Located at Mare’s headquarters and largest production facility in Ossona near Milan, Italy, Mare produces a wide range of Maredis Polyacrylates. Over 50,000 tonnes of Polyacrylates are produced each year, many of which go into the Textile industry.
