Spanish term or phrase: clase de goma
Here's the full sentence:

"El mercado exterior del crudo mejorado ha venido evolucionando favorablemente como consecuencia de su nivel de aceptación, al quedar demostrado que no se generaba ninguna *clase de goma* que afectara el proceso de utilización como se pensó inicialmente."

kind / type of gum
Explanation:
The context refers to the quality of fuels, so *goma* is considered a contaminant here. Therefore, I think *gum* is the appropriate term for it as there is the "1934 ASTM D 381, Method for Gum Content of Gasoline."
