Cellulose Nanocrystals

Cellulose is the main building block of trees and plants. Its nanocrystals are organized in a structure of strongly ordered crystalline particles which have been engineered by nature to be inherently strong.

Cellulose NanoCrystals (CNC) have several notable chemical, optical and electrical properties:

  • Their size, shape and charge lead to unique behavior in solutions.
  • The high chemical reactivity of the surface1 makes CNC customizable for various applications.
  • Their heat stability allows high temperature applications.

CNC are not all made equal. The CNC produced by CelluForce is called CelluForce NCCTM and has specific properties and are especially easy to disperse. CelluForce NCCTM is the base material that CelluForce uses in all its products. This base material can be modified and tailored to suit the specific needs in various applications.
