About United Guar

United Guar manufactures guar gum, the most efficient known thickener for water of all the known natural gums.  Our products are used in the petroleum industry primarily as a thickener for hudraulic fracturing, and to a lesser extent in drilling fluids.   The unique chemistry of the polymer allows it to be crosslinked efficiently using boron, zirconium, and other crosslinkers.
