In Pharmaceutical Industry :- It is used to manufacture tablets, as a binder and used as a substitute to cellulose. It fulfils all specifications of pharmaceuticals.
In textile Industry :- It improves weaving performance. It is used in textile finishing. It increases the stiffness of the fabric and improves the texture. Maize Starch is used in conjension with thermosetting to obtain permanent finish as an adhesive in the size mix which strengthen the yarn. It improves the glaze and polish. It also improves the printability.
In Food Industry :- Starch is used as a thickening agent in manufacturing of sauces, Puddings, Curry gravies and in backing. It is used in the manufacture of gracious cones. It is very conveniently cooked to make a viscous and opaque paste very Quickly
In paper Industry :- It increases the strength of the paper. It increases stiffness and appearance of the paper. It is used in all grades of paper industries like bond, Ledger, chart, envelope. It is used in surface sizing, which increases the printability and erasing capability of the paper. It is used as an adhesive agent in pigment coating.
