Modified starch (hydroxypropyl starch) is used in building materials. In cementitious systems (plasters, tile adhesives…) and in gypsum systems, the water retention of the starch leads to a prolonged open time. By selecting the right starch in combination with a cellulose ether, the setting time can be controlled specifically.

Starches are also used for adhesives, mainly for paper and cardboard, and in wallpaper glues.
In the textile sector, they are used in sizings as well as finishes. But starches are also used in glass fibre sizings.

BCD Chemie offers starches with varying degrees of substitution.
