ARBOCEL® Functional Cellulose Products


JRS has united a number of different functional cellulose products under the ARBOCEL® brand that are used in many important industrial sectors. These include functional cellulose fibers, cellulose additives, powdered cellulose, fine cellulose, micronized cellulose, cellulose compactates, cellulose powder, cellulose flour, cellulose granulates, cellulose mixtures, cellulose compounds, cellulose derivatives, CE, MC, HPMC, cellulose gels, cellulose wadding, cellulose insulation materials and a lot more besides.

As a manufacturer and systems and technical partner, JRS offers a unique combination of technology and know-how in the field of functional cellulose – as a solution provider with extensive functional know-how, expertise in applications, specific raw material selection, application support, metering and conveying systems as well as global QA and logistics support.

Cellulose is obtained from a wide variety of sustainable, plant-based raw materials.

JRS makes the many functional properties, which nature has created in the plant world, accessible to almost all sectors of modern industry.

We shall be happy to provide you with further details upon request!

Powdered cellulose is used as an economic, inert carrier material in tabletting and capsule filling. ARBOCEL® powdered cellulose improves tablet hardness and disintegration time – also, in combination with VIVAPUR® MCC.

» Excipients

ARBOCEL Powdered Cellulose


Highly pure, odourless and natural fibers which are neutral to taste are used here from specially prepared quality cellulose material. Mechanically and chemically very stable, insoluble in almost all media and virtually pH-neutral. The organic, highly efficient alternative to diatomaceous earth and Pertite.
