Seeking to reduce or replace petroleum and synthetic chemicals in your agricultural formulations? Take advantage of Ingredion's biopolymer expertise and product portfolio. Through our high-performance, affordable plant-based polymers, we can help you capture “triple bottom-line” benefits of superior performance, better sustainability and affordability.
Our patent-pending binder technology provides a sustainable, renewable alternative to synthetic binders. These starch-based binders have an equivalent application rate of 3-5 fl oz/cwt, with third-party lab evaluation showing comparable coverage, dust-off, flowability, plantability, phytotoxicity, bridging and tackiness. Starch-based binders are certified biodegradable by Resptek™.
Renewable and asbestos-free, our patent-pending FLO-MAX® technology offers a starch-based alternative to talc used in planting equipment. What’s next is here to prevent seed clumping and bridging in hoppers, and clinging to seed discs in seed meters. This FLO-MAX® starch-based solution is very inert to moisture/humidity, enhancing your planting needs with or without graphite.
Improve tank-mix compatibility in your crop protection and fertilizer applications. Achieve uniform coverage. Boost adhesion and overcome the viscosity/rheology challenges of hydrocolloids/gums. With our starch-based rheology modifiers/stabilizers and dispersing/suspending agents, you can deliver top performance — including ability to encapsulate or plate incompatible active ingredients.
