The Gabrosa™ grades are high quality viscosifiers for your water-based formulations. They are used in many different applications such as drilling, adhesives, ceramics and paper.

Gabrosa is the tradename for our sodium carboxymethyl cellulose ethers (NaCMC or simply CMC) for use in various applications and industries.

Oilfield Drilling

Gabrosa CMCs and the closely related PACs are vital components for reducing fluid loss. Depending on the grade, they can also make an important contribution to the viscosity and the shale inhibitive properties of the drilling fluid.

We are proud to offer a full range of technical Gabrosa grades to meet the demands of different drilling fluid systems:


Our Gabrosa grades are also excellent for use in a wide range of other applications, such as wallpaper adhesives. Gabrosa is produced by reacting cellulose with sodium monochloroacetate to give a water soluble CMC with excellent adhesion properties. A variety of grades are available with excellent handling and adhesion properties designed to deal with all kinds of wallpaper and surfaces.
Gabrosa adhesives can be applied easily with a brush or pasting machine, exhibit excellent wet tack and (re)positioning properties, and have a more than sufficient open time with strong adhesion to all kinds of surfaces.
