Native waxy starch is made from wax corn. Unlike other native starches, its content of amylopectin is up to 99%. It is used as a universal thickener for pastes, paints and various coatings. Native waxy starch is especially important in the production of label adhesives, where it shows an increased adhesive ability when working on high-speed machines.
