Neelkanth Polymers (a Unit of Kc India Ltd.)


Guar the Magical Seed


Extracted from Guar Seed, Guar Gum Powder is a natural polymer having high viscosity.

  • Guar gum has a significant contribution to the look and feel of many products we use in our everyday life. Extracted with a multistage industrial process,It is used throughout various industries as a cost effective thickening and stabilizing agent.
  • Guar gum can be used in various formulations. It works as an emulsifier because it helps to prevent oil droplets from coalescing, and as a stabilizer because it helps to prevent solid particles from settling. Guar gum is a hydrocolloid, which is particularly useful for making thick pastes without forming a gel, and for keeping water bound in a sauce or emulsion. Fast hydrating slurriable guar is used in the stimulation of oil and gas wells as fracturing fluid.
  • Neelkanth Polymers produces High Viscosity Guar Refined Splits, Guar Gum Powder, Guar Gum Derivatives, Fast Hydrating Guar Gum and High Protein Guar Meal.
