These anionic starch-based polymers are cold-water soluble, high-viscosity adhesives that provide excellent adhesion and thickening properties. GlucoStar products also have good shear stability, electrolyte stability, excellent film clarity and combined tack and slip properties—all the right characteristics for wall covering, adhesive and paper-bag adhesive products.
FiberStar polymers are cold-water soluble, low-viscosity, non-ionic polymers that are natural polysaccharides. They’re designed to enhance functional properties, including adhesion/binding, water retention, rheology and viscosity. And, FiberStar products are excellent choices for binding and adhesive applications where economics is important.
We began offering our Chemstar StarBond series to the general adhesives market after it got rave reviews from leading specialty adhesives manufacturers. StarBond provides premier water retention, workability and adhesion properties within a variety of compounds.
Our GlucoSol polymer series features low- and high-viscosity options that each provide lump-free mixing characteristics. GlucoSol 800 is a specialty solution tailored to the adhesives industry that is designed to enhance high-solid, low-viscosity formulas.
