Corn Starch
Unlike other types of starch, corn starch does not become thin and brittle during sizing, and it turns into a soft dough easily and within a short time (one hour) of cooking and heating. For this reason, it has become very popular in the textile industry. Its adhesion ensures uniform penetration into the seams of the fibers and creates a desirable texture. Corn starch is used in the textile industry to change the strength or stiffness of the fabric, or to modify the appearance of the fabric, or to add weight to it. It is also used in connection with heat-resilient or heat-hardenable resins to create a permanent state. Also, corn starch is used to fill the seams between fabrics. This type of finishing increases the stiffness and strength of the fabric, because all the pores of the fabric are filled with a starchy compound. Therefore, the fabric is used in window awnings or load drapes and in book binding. Starch is used in the textile industry in different ways. It is used as a sticky material in the sintering stage to strengthen the warp of fabric threads and increase the resistance of the product against fraying or scratching while weaving. It is used in fabric finishing to increase the stability of printing on the fabric. It is used as a finishing material to make woven yarns shiny and polished. The reason for using starch in the textile industry is to increase the strength of the threads. Also, this powder brings weight, coating and dusting to the fabric.
