Are you able to advise the supplier of the reagent PE26 (mixture of CMC and guar)?

It seems to be made by Prospec Chemicals, part of Charles Tennant & Co. It is in their Tennapress product line.

Would you consider fenugreek gum?  There has been some encouraging results compared to PE26 in certain applications.

You bet.  It's been used in the potash industry for quite sometime and lab testing has shown promise for it in certain copper/nickel flotation applications.  Testing has shown it to outperform PE26 at a similar dosage for the purpose of carbon suppression in copper sulphide flotation.  Another test has shown similar performance compared to CMC at a significantly reduced dosage rate in the depression of talc in copper/nickel sulphide ore.
