Anomera produces the highest quality Cellulose NanoCrystals (CNC) in the world. Our carboxylated-CNC, called DextraCel™, can be supplied as a nano-redispersible powder or liquid suspension, depending on the market need.
Anomera has created a new class of biodegradable cosmetic powders that replace plastic and silica microbeads and other inorganic ingredients used in make-up and skin care. Everyday trillions of plastic microbeads from cosmetics pollute our lakes, rivers and oceans. Anomera’s ChromaPur™ cellulose microbeads are a safe, biodegradable and performing alterative to these damaging petroleum-based and chemically processed ingredients.
Anomera’s DextraCel™ enhances the hydration of cement to significantly improve flexural strength and compressive strength. DextraCel™ works well in all types of cement and specifically adds benefits by reducing the quantity of cement required to achieve the same and in some instances enhanced structural properties. In pavement DextraCel™ reduces microcracking for increased durability and extends quality lifecycle of the roadbed.
CNC adds strength and flexure benefits to enable lighter, stronger and longer lasting materials. Anomera’s DextraCel™ powder will redisperse to nanocrystals in water and uniquely in non-aqueous solvents, a feature that is essential to produce high performance nanocomposite. New benefits can be expected by combining classic structural composites with nano-dispersible materials. Anomera has developed unique and protected methodolgies for cosmetics and plastics.
The paints and coatings sectors seek new ways to bring high performance, low cost, sustainably sourced materials into its product lines. Anomera’s DextraCel™ is a multi-application, all-natural, completely nano-dispersible cellulose additive to modify rheology, enhance abrasion resistance, provide barrier properties, and adjust the mechanical properties of paints and coatings.
Anomera’s DextraCel™provides opportunities for safe cellulosic advanced ingredients. Anomera elaborates its DextraCel™ line into intelligent release systems for drug delivery, creation of cell scaffolds for tissue engineering, fabrication of hybrid excipients with improved properties, new all-natural color coatings with barrier properties for tablets, dye labeling, and transport of proteins, recombinants and bioactives.
Anomera reinterprets DextraCel™ to offer a plethora of benefits to seed coating and seed coating formulations. With its focus on protectants, micronutrients, symbionts, soil adjuvents, phytoactives, color and “intelligent” coating composites, Anomera works with Agriculture to advance the growing potential of seed coating technologies.
