Guar Gum is among the most important water-soluble polymers. With major uses are in the oil and gas, textile, paper, food, explosives, and mining industries. Our brand RAMCOL has been specially formulated as per application need and also tailor made as per Buyers specific process requirements.

Oil and Gas

Ramcol Guar Gum is used in hydraulic fracturing ( A common industry practice to increase the productivity of oil and gas wells by cracking open the hydrocarbon-bearing zones with hydraulic pressure.) Fast Hydration and High viscosity, at reasonable cost, is required which we at Shree Ram have achieved naturally with no additives or modifications.
Our products are also compatible with a wide range of field waters and can be formulated to loose viscosity at a controlled rate. It is also useful in controlling fluid lost to the porous formations being fractured and in reducing frictional pressure losses while fluid is being pumped.


The last 20 years have seen the growth of a sophisticated technology which are called either slurry explosives or water gel. These compositions are safer to use than previous explosives. Ramcol is used in the formulation of such products. It has the ability ducts to thicken efficiently under a variety of difficult conditions and to be readily crosslinked or gelled that makes them useful.


Ramcol is used as dye solution thickeners in textile printing applications. They are often oxidized under controlled conditions so that the thickening power of the product vs. concentration is brought to a predetermined level. With increased solubility, it is useful in preventing the buildup on printing screens and aids in their removal by washing after printing.


Ice Cream Ramcol used in small quantities, does not greatly affect the viscosity of the mix during manufacture, but impart a smooth, chewy texture to the finished product. A show melt down of the product and increased heat shock resistance are other benefits. Ice cream stabilized with Ramcol prevents ice crystal formation.
Canned Pet FoodHigh free-water content is characteristic of this type of product. Ramcol is used to thicken the free water in the product, and the meat and vegetable solids are coated with a thick gravy. Special, slow-swelling grades of Ramcol Guar gum are sometimes used to limit viscosity during the can-filling operation.
CheeseIn soft cheese processing, Ramcol controls the consistency and spreading properties of the product. Smoother, more homogeneous cheese spreads with high water content are possible because of Ramcol Guar gum’s water-binding properties.
Sauces and Salad DressingsThese products make use of the high viscosity grades of Ramcol at low concentration. This helps maintaining the consistency and flowability of the product while retaining the moisture. It also helps in reducing the solid content in the sauces.
Bread, Biscuit and other Baked FoodsRamcol when added to dough while kneading, increases the yield, gives greater resiliency, and a drier, less flabby appearance. The baked products have a better and softer texture and retain freshness longer. The effect is the improvement of the dough, prevention of crumbling, increasing the luster and helping in the case removal of molds.
JamsRamcol helps in prevention of moisture release and shrinkage. It also acts as a binder and stabilizer to increase the strength of the product and improving the texture of the product.
Sausages and Canned FoodRamcol increases the lubricity of meat products for stuffing and squeezing.Gum guar is useful in processing canned meat products; it prevents fat migration during storage, stops syneresis and water accumulation, and reduces the tendency for voids to be present in the can.
Ramcol Guar Gum acts as a bulk forming laxative and as such, it is claimed to be effective in promoting regular bowel movements and relieve constipation and chronic related functional bowel ailments. In addition, because it is soluble, it is also able to absorb toxic substances (bacteria) that cause infection. Guar gum has been considered of interest with regards to diabetic diets. Some studies have found guar gum to improve dietary glucose tolerance.


The major use of Ramcol is as a wet-end additive. (It is added to the pulp suspension just before the sheet is formed.) Galactomannans replace or supplement the natural hemicelluloses in paper bonding.
Advantages gained by the addition of Ramcol to pulp are improved Sheet formation, increased Mullen Burst Strength, pick is increased, Pulp Hydration, Better Finish, decreased porosity, increased flat crush, better retention of fines and increased machine speed.


In this industry, Ramcol is widely used as flocculants to produce liquid-solids separations. These may be broadly classified as filtration, settling, or clarification of mineral slurries. Ramcol is also used in flotation to recover base metals. Ramcol acts as a depressant for talc or insoluble gangue mined along with the valuable minerals.
Ramcol Guar products increase the permeability of the filter cake, resulting in an increased filtration rate.


The construction industry has become a major field for use of biopolymers like Ramcol the application of which is widespread and diverse. Biopolymers like Ramcol, are also more acceptable as they are environmentally more friendly.
Some of the uses are PRB Construction, Jet Grouting, Concrete Admixtures, Viscosity Modifiers, etc.
