How Guar Helps The Mining Industry

    In mining, due to its natural properties Guar acts as floatation agent, improves flocculation and enhances the process of lump aggregation and recovery ores.

Guar And The Paper Printing and Manufacturing Industry

    Guar is used in the large-scale production of paper, as it provides a denser surface for printing, improves uniformity and sheet formation. It also increases bursting strength and fold strength.

Pet And Animal Food And Products

    When used in cat litter, guar acts as a clumping agent that captures waste and creates a mass that is easily scooped. It also helps to improve the functionality of sodium bentonite, which serves to keep the waste contained within the litter box. Additionally, Guar’s highly soluble fiber thickens and stabilizes pet food, is often an ingredient in livestock feed and guar protein is frequently found in fish feed.

Guar's Properties Benefit The Construction Industry

    The construction industry benefits from guar’s water retention and thickening properties, which serve as a mortar retarder that improves flowability.

Guar As A Thickening Agent And Fire Retardant

    When blended with clay in fire-retardants, guar becomes a thickening agent that prevents fragmentation after it is dropped from a plane.
