World leader
in the
commercial
production

of cellulose
nanocrystals

Cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) is a new advanced biomaterial produced from wood. Made of infinitely small cellulose crystals derived from trees, CNC is produced as a spray-dried powder or as a liquid suspension and can be used to improve product performance in several industrial sectors. CelluForce commercializes a family of CNC products under the brand name CelluForce NCC®.

 

CelluForce NCC® is a multi-functional material
 

Blocks

Particle size and aspect ratio
reduce the permeability of films
and materials.

Emulsifies

Charges on the crystals allow the formation of Pickering emulsions to stabilize colloidal suspensions. 

Lubricates

Alignment of crystals reduces the coefficient of friction and surface wear.

Suspends

Liquid crystal structure allows the stable suspension of particles.

Strengthens

High particle crystallinity
imparts strength and hardness.

Viscosifies

Crystal aspect ratio and surface charges create unique viscosity and shear thinning properties.

Can be functionalizable

CelluForce NCC® can be tuned to perform other functions through hydroxyl and sulfate groups. 

Celluforce Science

CelluForce NCC® is a natural product, safe and biodegradable. It can be economically extracted from the wood fibers an abundant and renewable resource.
