Ingredients for Paper Manufacturing
Over ten million
kilograms of gums are used each year in the global paper
industry. Guar gum is used in paper and paperboard manufacturing
because of its ability to boost tensile strength, and improve
surface quality and durability.
Guar gum derivatives decrease the surface porosity of paper,
while also giving denser surface area to the paper used for
printing—promoting a smooth finish. Additionally, guar gum
improves erasing and writing properties by creating better
bonding strength and increased hardness.
