Biopolymers for viscosity control of aqueous systems

Thickening- and Thixotropy Agents

Our thickening agents are based on anionic heteropolysaccharides and have been part of our product range for over thirty years. Our customers worldwide rely on our xanthan gums as stabilisers and thickening agents for aqueous systems. We supply the gums in various forms and thus offer you alternatives for a wide range of applications. Profit from the flexibility our thickening agents give you.

Thickening with anionic Heteropolysaccharides

Our thickening agents consist of pure xanthan gums and types that have delayed swelling properties  through surface treatment with glyoxal as well as through granulation. Due to the compact powder structure of our xanthan’s, especially the granulated types, there is less dust formation and therefore easier handling. There are two fluid thickening pastes available for absolutely dust-free preparation, in which a xanthan is pre-wetted with solvent and stabilizers.

Your advantages at a glance
