The first step in product selection is determining the physical characteristics you want to impart to an end product. For example: increase or reduce weight; increase strength, flexibility or rigidity; add absorption characteristics; or introduce non-slip / anti-skid texture. The next step is to quantify the sought after attributes in the Filler or Extender, including particle shape or size; hardness; specific gravity; absorbency; reactive or inert; and temperature.
Some examples of Filler and Extender applications include Extruded Lumber: Rice Hulls, Wood Flour; Plywood Adhesive Extender and Flex Strength additive: Walnut Shell Flour, Wood Flour; Non-Skid / Textured Coatings: Plasti-Grit, Walnut Shell Grit, Clear Thermoset Grit; Composite Flex Strengtheners: Kenaf, Cotton, Rayon Fibers; Ceramic Aeration additive (Burn-out): Walnut Shell Grit.
Beede & Sons Inc. of Lowell, Mass. was our source of Hard Wood Flour for many years. Recently, they closed their doors for the last time.
In order to meet our customer's needs, we have solidified a new source. Please contact us if you have a requirement for Hard Wood Flour.
We have started to produce a -400 Walnut Shell Flour (38 Micron). This is an incredible, very fine filler, which is not seen very often on the market.
Bio-Renewable, Hydrophobic, Light weight, Inexpensive. These are some of the characteristics of a new fiber filler in our line. Please contact us for more information.
In refractory brick manufacturing, when stacking bricks in the kiln, a problem has been bricks sticking together. Using un-ground rice hulls between the bricks has proven to be an excellent solution. Rice Hulls are a by-product in the rice industry, are low cost, and available.
We are on the move. After 21 December 2009 we will have the following address:
Telephone numbers and e-mail are the same.

At that time our offices were in Stamford, Ct. A year later we moved to Fairfield, CT and in 2000 built our factory and administrative offices in leased space in Milford, CT.
Now we are entering a new phase in our business development. CMC is now 86 years old and this is our first facilities ownership.
Our new facility, built in 1984, is modern and well suited to our manufacturing needs. It is 17,000 sq. ft with 24 foot ceilings. This will accommodate our large Grinding and Sifting operation. Our large warehousing requirement is satisfied efficiently by floor to ceiling pallet racking. New materials handling equipment adds to the efficiency of the operation.
During the last weeks of December and into January we will be rebuilding our manufacturing lines. We have been building inventory and hope you will experience no shortages. Please order as soon as possible so we can meet your requirements.
We will continue to improve our responsiveness as we get settled in our new facility. Please contact us if there are any problems.
