Aquacel™ GSA and GSH cellulose gums have been developed to enable synergy with guar to provide higher viscosity in liquid phase, moisture holding, fast hydration development and practical application by simple dry mixing. Synergies have been demonstrated in guar-gum-to-cellulose-gum ratios, ranging from 80:20 to 40:60. This maximizes flexibility when adding cellulose gum. In addition, there is high viscosity across a wide range of blend ratios, allowing for reduced doses of guar in the final formualtion.
