Our flake format provides slow hydration and prevents insoluble material from plugging equipment.

Chemstar starch polymers ensure dyes stay in place, for exacting detail and stunning finished quality.

Rheology enhancement—We can help thicken or improve viscosity consistency in disperse and vat dyes, and other dyestuff applications, to enhance efficiencies and production quality.

Polymer applications



Chemstar starch polymers create premier protective coatings for fibers.


Our polymers increase swelling power and water absorption of dye paste for superior dispersion, while our custom chemistries prevent color bleeding.

Leverage the starch polymer advantage

Our starch-based polymers offer tangible performance attributes that other polymers can’t match, in quality, efficiency and consistency.

Starch’s protective coating enables yarn to better withstand the weaving process, minimizing shedding and costly defects and losses.

Smoother-running weaving processes help reduce shutdowns and maximize uptime and profits.

Starch-based polymers’ premier color retention maximizes finished quality, improving customer satisfaction and loyalty.
