Hydroxypropyl Starch Ether (HPS) is a chemical compound which exhibits physical appearance of white (colorless) powder with high degree of fluidity. Hydroxypropyl Starch Ether is soluble in water and when mixed with an aqueous solution it exhibits colorless or transparent appearance and also shows good stability. Hydroxypropyl starch ether also aids to numerous important properties such as solution thickening, water retention, biocompatibility, surface activity, foam stability to name a few. Because of these attributes, hydroxypropyl starch ether can be widely used and perform as a material of choice in different applications such as synthetic detergent, building materials, textile, papermaking, mining, food, cosmetics, organic liquid or paint, petroleum, aerospace, adhesives and polymerization. In the commercial market place different grades of material are available of which food and pharma grade are extensively used. Amongst other applications, the use of hydroxypropyl starch ether is gaining traction and momentum in construction industry, hydroxypropyl starch ether can be used with the products such as cement, lime calcium base, gypsum in inner & outer wall putty powder, with plastering and decorative mortar. Addition of hydroxypropyl starch ether with architectural admixtures promotes the internal structure with better thickening effect and also provides resistance to crack formation and improve workability. In paper Industry, hydroxypropyl starch ether can be used as an additive that can promote chemical fiber hydration. Also in textile industry hydroxypropyl starch ether can be used as sizing agent which provides effective and efficient textile sizing. Furthermore hydroxypropyl starch ether finds exceptional usage in food and pharmaceutical industry.
Hydroxypropyl Starch Ether Market: Drivers and Restraints
