Guarmer is a nonionic polymer derived from natural guar gum. It has good compatibility with electrolytes and stability over a large range of pH. Like cellulose ethers, it gives optimized thickening effect, helps stabilize emulsions. Guarmer significantly reduces formulation cost, offers same water retention performance and improved work-ability in the final products.
Guarmer is used as a total or partial alternative to cellulose ethers and is compatible with almost all the other thickeners and binders of natural and synthetic origin necessary for the manufacture of construction materials. The optimal concentration of Guarmer must be determined with specific tests by the user himself in his own formulation.
