Starches

Our pioneering starch adhesives have helped shape the industry, and today's lineup of native and modified starches keeps you in front with optimal, reliable performance, batch after batch.

Backed by expert technical, sales and engineering support, your starch 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

Additives

Our lineup of CORAGUM® additives ensure top performance of your starch adhesives while minimizing cost of use through improved performance, reduced waste and optimized consumption.

Our team can recommend the right additives 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 in glue pans and run tanks
  • Liquid performance additives to enhance the wet tack and green bond of starch-based adhesives
  • Resins to impart varying degrees of water resistance to corrugated board
