Maize Starch Industrial Grade

In the textile industry, Maize Starch Powder serves various purposes to enhance fabric quality. It is employed to improve surface texture, enhance dry strength, and aid in wet end sizing. Additionally, it can be used to add weight to fabrics. Sahyadri Starch & Industries Pvt. Ltd (SSIL) produces Maize Starch Powder (MSP) specifically designed for the textile sector. Our MSP helps keep yarn straightened, enhancing its ability to withstand the stress of weaving. Our textile- grade Maize starch products are well-regarded by all kinds of wrap sizing processors, including those with high-standard automation, as they maintain weaving efficiency while offering cost competitiveness.
