Aytex-P is an uncooked highly refined wheat starch. Commonly used in bookbinding and paper conservation as an adhesive for paper, leather, fabric, and other porous materials. It is sought after as a very stable adhesive with excellent long term aging characteristics. The Aytex-P is exceptionally white in color, gelatinizes at low cooking temperatures and forms cooled pastes which are delicate and smooth in texture. Has a high water holding capacity, pH 5-6.5 (measured in a 70% slurry).
To buffer this material, add 10% (by weight) of calcium carbonate.
This product requires cooking.
