GPC Pre-Gelled Starches for Industrial Applications

GPC pre-gelled starches can increase your productivity and help distinguish your products in the marketplace. We have extensive knowledge in carbohydrate chemistry for a number of industrial applications. You might be surprised at the number of choices we have available that will benefit your product performance.


GPC pre-gelled starches are more refined than flours, having the protein, fats and oils removed. Our pre-gelled starches are pure carbohydrate - the main characteristic that provides bonding strength. Because they have a higher degree of purity, they may offer increased performance over flours. Binding applications include pelleting, wallboard, ceiling tile, granulating, briquetting, prilling, asphalt, drilling, dust control solutions and proprietary adhesives to name a few.


GPC offers different choices of molecular weights, viscosities, particle size and filming characteristics. In many cases, we can tailor a product to meet your specific needs.

Pre-gelled starches do not need to be cooked to be functional. Just add water and mix.


IRON MASTER® G342 instant laundry starch is a pre-gelled starch-based blend developed to provide maximum starch performance in a laundry application. IRON MASTER® G342 is formulated for optimum solubility resulting in excellent dispersion, and superior performance on dark colored fabrics resulting in no highlighting. IRON MASTER® G342 also provides good stiffness and reduces operator chafing.

G242 industrial corn starch is a pre-gelled starch that has excellent characteristics for pelleting, briquetting and drilling applications. It has a high molecular weight for maximum strength, and is available in a range of packaging sizes from 50 lb. bag to bulk railcar.

GPC is prepared to help you reach sustainability and environmental responsibility goals for your next generation of products. Please contact us for more information.
