Introduction to Speciality Starch
Also known as
Speciality starch, polymer, water soluble polymer

STAR*POL® Starch Polymers are water soluble polymers, ideal for use in a range of building products and adhesives. They are easily dispersible, highly substituted, nonionic water-soluble polymers designed for use at lower solid levels in wall treatments, adhesives, tile mortar, tile grout, and oil-drilling mud, among other applications. The polymer is modified to give enhanced water-holding capacity and provides resistance to shear breakdown.
