The real payoff of Ingredion's starch adhesives and additives? It's much more than proven quality and performance. Backed with our advice and support, our solutions enable you to drive profitability from all sides — speeding throughput, reducing temperatures to save energy, improving product quality and reducing material footprint for greater sustainability.
Our pioneering starch adhesives have helped shape the industry, and today's lineup of pearl and modified starches (AMYLOK and OPTAMYL starch series) keeps you in front with optimal, reliable performance, run after run. Backed by expert technical, sales and engineering support, your options span two main groups:
Pearl starch, or unmodified starch, is the traditional choice in starch adhesives. With the new high-performance papers and reliance on more recycled materials, formulas need careful tuning for best viscosity, solids percentage and adhesive temperature.
Modified, or carrier starches, are used with pearl starches to increase solids for better bonding and faster machine speeds.
Our lineup of CORAGUM® additives ensure top performance of your starch adhesives while reducing starch solids and consumption for cost savings. Our team can recommend the right addtives to achieve optimal performance and process gains including:
Penetrating aids for greater adhesive penetration in bonding dense liners and/or mediums
Antifoam agents to eliminate foams generated at high machine speeds as starch cascades off the metering roll and wiper blade
Liquid performance additives to enhance the wet tack, or green bond, of starch-based adhesives
Resins to impart varying degrees of water resistance to corrugated board
Revolutionary CORAGUM® TCE thermal conductivity enhancer boosts the drying speed of adhesives — requiring about 1/10th the usual dose of other additives to achieve similarly effective results.
Our range of CORAGUM® adhesives is designed with converters' end goals in mind: Boost throughput. Reduce cost of materials. Deliver promised quality with precise lamination and print details. Let us guide you to the best solution from our range of hot melts and pressure-sensitive hot melts, emulsion polymers, and synthetic resins, formulated for exacting demands in:
Bonding coated and difficult substrates gets simpler when your adhesive delivers high bond strength, fast set speed, machinabilty ease and excellent wet tack — plus UV tracer dye to help ensure proper application.
