FiberStar products are the perfect cold-water soluble (pregelatinized) corn starch additive for wood fiber, mineral wool or cellulosic compositions such as insulation products.
GlucoPlus is a cationic derivative, corn starch polymer that is cold-water soluble with normal viscosity, and can serve as a flocculent and retention aid to eliminate cooking processes. The product’s solubility and cationic properties make GlucoPlus a versatile choice for specialty wet-end applications used in the paper industry.
GlucoStar products meet the growing demand for specialty binders, thanks to their superior adhesion and fermentation resistance. Since these carboxymethyl polymers are cold-water soluble and have low viscosity, they are perfect for a variety of paper industry applications.
Our GlucoSol product line provides exceptional dispersion and hydration profiles. These highly substituted natural polysaccharides are smart alternatives to competitive natural and synthetic water-soluble polymers. The polymers exhibit unique hydration profiles that allow the individual particles to briefly wet-out prior to rapid hydration of the polymer, eliminating the formation of gel agglomerates.
Chemstar’s StarBond product line meets a variety of paper industry applications, providing adhesion, water retention, improved rheology and other critical properties.
