Galactasol™ guar derivatives

Galactasol guar derivatives are dispersible polymers which achieve quick hydration and viscosity. They are well-suited for applications requiring thickeners, suspension aids, friction reducers and cross-linked gels. Galactasol guar derivatives build rheology of fluids to prevent misting of the solutions during aerial drop onto fluids.

Galactasol polymers are high purity, nonionic, unmodified guar polymers designed for systems requiring rapid viscosity and good dispersibility and are designed for thickening and rheology control in textile printing.
