Strong in starch

Starch is an excellent adhesive when it comes to gluing materials such as paper and creating aluminium laminated paper. Avebe supplies many types of starch thickeners, tackifiers and dextrins directly to end-users, but also to adhesive manufacturers. Formulations become more ‘green’ if starch is incorporated. A range of products can be offered to be blended with all kinds of synthetic liquid dispersion adhesives as PVAC, polyvinyl acrylic, to improve rheology, enhance penetration and bonding, and replace synthetic thickener as polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH).
