Yellow dextrin is manufactured by moderate hydrolyzation of starch, using the dry roasting process in the existence of a catalyst: The dextrinisation chemically reduces the starch molecules into smaller components. Yellow dextrin has low viscosity and is very sticky and hygroscopic in character. Yellow dextrin helps in increasing dry strength at the same time being completely soluble in water. It is widely used in the foundry as a binder for cores. Its binding abilities’ make it an essential ingredient in various other applications such as Adhesives, Gums, Pastes, Pyrotechnics & Corrugated boxes. It is used with greater advantage in book binding, carton sealing, cigarette pasting, label pasting of all kinds, paper, gum tapes etc.
