Traditional and industrial applications
Dammar Gum is used as a raw material in the production of high end dyes and paints. In India, Dammar gum is used as incent in religious rites and has applications in the traditional Indian medicine. Its water repulsing and binding properties enables Dammar gum to be used as a coating agent.
In the European Union, Dammar Gum is not permitted to be used in the pharmaceutical or foodstuff industry – thus, Dammar gum has no European Food Safety E-Code. Outside the European Union, Dammar gum has the potential to become relevant in the pharmaceutical industry as a natural polymer, to be used as a component of drug releasing matrices in pills.
