Chitin and its derivative (Chitosan) are natural polysaccharides bio polymers with cellulose which are produced by the biomass.

Production: Production is done out of crustacean shells due to the large availability of wastes from the sea food industry. Crustacean shells have three mail components - Chitin, Calcium Salt and Proteins. It requires separation of three components with Acids, Extraction of Calcium Salts and Basis Extraction of Proteins. The yield of Chitin extraction is 15% from the dried shells or 2% from the fresh shells. The Chitosan is produced by deacetylation of the Chitin.

Characteristics: They are linear co polymers of glucosamine and N-Acetylglucosamine.

We have given codification by three numbers followed by the date of production. The first is concerned about the origin and the quality grade, the second number concern the viscosity and the third number the degree of deacetylation.

Origin & Grade
  • Squid Bone
  • Shrimp shell cosmetic & pharmaceutical grade.
  • Food grade shrimp shell.
  • Technical grade shrimp shell.

Viscosity In Cps. (1 grm of Chitosan in 99 grm of 1% Acetic Acid solution at 25 C.)
  • for viscocity upper than 2000 cps.
  • for viscocity in between 2000 and 500 cps.
  • for viscocity in between 500 and 100 cps.
  • for viscocity in between 100 and 20 cps.
  • for viscocity in between 20 and 05 cps.
  • for viscocity less than 05 cps.
