To help you prosper, we tap into our people. In them you’ll find a deep understanding of your application — and then there’s our unrivaled expertise in starch. Explore these applications.


 Glass fiber

Glass fiber is material made from extremely fine fibers of glass. It is used as a reinforcing agent for many polymer products. National Starch Biomaterials Innovation provides specialty starches that influence formation and weaving properties. They can be used as an alternative to formaldehyde-based thermosetting resins.

 Personal care products

National Starch Biomaterials Innovations can provide natural ingredients in your product formulations for soaps, shampoos, creams and foams. With an increased industry focus on natural ingredients, you can create certified organic and aluminum-free products for silky skin-care emulsions with our natural polymers.


Reduce waste, improve recyclability, replace synthetics and build in renewable and sustainable content in your plastics. Used in trays, foams and functional additives, our hydrophobic starches can improve moisture barriers and help you create specialty starch-based biodegradable food grade packaging.
