Starch Glues

Starch AdhesivesStarch glues are one of the many types of eco-glues manufactured by L.D. Davis. Starch is a white powder that is cooked in water up to 180-190oF, dissolving it and providing a viscous glue. Starch glues can be applied at ambient conditions or heated if required.

Ideal for producing paper products such as corrugated boxes and paper bags. Can be formulated to a paste consistency for applications where an extremely high viscosity is required like wallpaper paste. In addition to ease of use and excellent adhesion in a wide range of paper applications, these products are very economical.

All of our Starch glues are derived from renewable natural sources making them extremely eco-friendly.
