Our Products Advantages

The core properties of CelluForce NCC® allows its use in diverse applications leading to new or improved products and processes

Explore the Core Properties

icon self assembles


The crystals that comprise CelluForce NCC® interact with one another to form a structured liquid crystal.

icon strong


CelluForce NCC® is an inherently strong material because of its high crystallinity. 

icon thixotropic


Fluids containing CelluForce NCC® are shear thinning, meaning they decrease in viscosity with the application of shear.

icon surface active


CelluForce CelluForce NCC® surface is comprised of hydroxyl and acidic groups that are reactive and can be functionalized with other chemicals.

icon photonic


CelluForce NCC® forms solids with structural colour. As the ordered CelluForce NCC® fluid becomes a solid, its colour is created by the interaction of light with the layered structures that are developed.

icon high surface area

High surface area

CelluForce NCC® has an inherently high surface area. This is a result of the size of its separated particles, which is a function of the source of the cellulose and the process of extraction.

icon electro-magnetic


CelluForce NCC® is a charged material. The functional groups impart a negative charge to the surface of the crystal which, in turn, transmits electromagnetic properties to the crystal.

Celluforce Science
Cellulose Nanocrystals are the primary structural building blocks of trees and other plants, and can be economically extracted from the wood fibres an abundant and renewable resource
