Gum Ghatti is a calcium-magnesium salt composed of L-arabinose, D-galactose, D-mannose, D-xylose, and D-glucuronic acid in a molar ration of The gum absorbs any water seeping in the cartridge and forms a surface protection for the interior explosive so that its detonation sensitivity is not impaired. Ghatti dispersions are not affected by small amounts of acid or alkali since the gum acts as a buffer and reverts to its normal pH of about 4.

Its common names are axlewood Englishbakli, dhau, dhawa, dhawra, or dhaora Hinditakhian-nu Thaiand raam Vietnamese. Following are some of the applications of Gum Ghatti: It is used in the acidizing of oil wells in combination with a water-insoluble nonaqueous liquid that is inert to both the gum and acid. At Penta, our products and services help businesses do business better. It is then hand sorted according to color and impurities into various grades before being exported to the United States.

At all pHs, upon aging viscosity increases noticeably over time. In the United States, Ghattis is used to prepare stable, powdered, oil-soluble vitamins as well as a stabilizer in oil-in-water emulsions. Gum Ghatti is a moderately viscous gum lying intermediate between Arabic and Karaya. Used in the preparation of powdered, stable, oil-soluble vitamins. The locals pick the gums not tree-wise but area-wise and so mix the gums of a large variety of locally growing trees. Powdered Ghatti is used in ammonium nitratesemigelatin mixtures, and powdered explosives to improve their resistance to water damage.


The tree is leafless during the whole of the cold season; new leaves in April-May. The emulsifying properties of Gum Ghatti are excellent and considered to be better than Gum Arabic and thus used in more difficult-to- handle systems The normal pH of the dispersion is 4.

Viscosity is a function of pH. The addition of sodium salts sodium carbonate, sodium chloride produces a typical viscosity reducing effect of simple electrolytes on a polymer. Viscosity loss is noted below pH 3 and above pH Compatibility Ghatti is compatible with other plant hydrocolloids as well as carbohydrates, most proteins and some fats. Preservatives The gum is similar to other hydrocolloids that are subject to bacterial attack.

Methyl and proply parahydroxybenzoate at a maximum of 0.

Identification of Anogeissus latifolia Wallich and analysis of refined gum ghatti. S 02 – Keep out of the reach of children.

Used in powdered explosives to improve resistance to water damage. This picking activity is the root cause of the heterogeneity in commercial Gum Ghatti.

gkm The tree is quite large and found in large numbers in the dry, deciduous forests of India and Ceylon. At the same time it does not form a true gel.

Chemical Carcinogenesis Research Information System: It is used at about 0. The tree is the source of Indian gum, also known as ghatti gum, which is used for calico printing among other uses. Glycerin and propylene glycol may also be used. For over 30 years, Penta Manufacturing Company has played a growing role in worldwide chemistry innovations and applications.


Gum Ghatti: Colony Gums

The finer the particle size of the powdered gum, the faster the gum will swell and reach its maximum viscosity. If the gum is coarser than mesh, the sols will be grainy and will require a longer time to reach maximum viscosity due to the individual gum particles swelling, but still maintaining their individual particles.

So hand sorting of individual lots becomes a necessity Krystal Colloids Pvt. This viscosity profile gives it a unique status in the spectrum of hydrocolloids.

Microwave-generated bionanocomposites for solubility and dissolution enhancement of poorly water-soluble drug glipizide: No longer provide for the use of these seven synthetic flavoring substances. The grades vary from one another in terms of colour, solubility, viscosity, BFOM and total ash content. Top of Page Home.

Gum Ghatti

Flow behavior characteristics of ice cream mix made with buffalo milk and various stabilizers. As an industry leader, Penta continues to pioneer chemistry-based solutions for practically every area of commerce. After approval, the exudate is pulverized to a fine mesh powder. The colour varies from whitish yellow to amber depending on factors ghattii the proximity of the tear to the bark, the length of time it has remained on the tree before being picked and the age of the product in storage.

As a binder in long-fibered light weight papers. Sifting, aspiration gkm density-table separation are used during this powdering to remove impurities.

It is a large erect deciduous tree, meters sometimes 24 m with a smooth light colored bark.
