CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

3. The corrugating adhesive of claim 1 or 2, further comprising water.

4. The corrugating adhesive of any one of claims 1 to 3, wherein a modification of the modified starch is selected from the group consisting of an oxidization, inhibition,

crosslinking, stabilization, esterification, acetylation, etherification, hydroxypropylation, cationization, acidic hydrolyzation, enzymatic hydrolyzation, alkali modification, solvent modification and mixtures thereof.

5. The corrugating adhesive of any one of claims 1 to 4, further comprising a caustic agent, and, optionally, wherein the caustic agent is sodium hydroxide.

6. The corrugating adhesive of any one of claims 1 to 5, further comprising a boron agent, and, optionally, wherein the boron agent is borax.

7. The corrugating adhesive of any one of claims 1 to 6, consisting essentially of the modified starch, the water, the caustic agent, and/or the boron agent.

8. The corrugating adhesive of any one of claims 1 to 7, wherein a portion of the modified starch is granular, and a portion of the modified starch is gelatinized.

9. The corrugating adhesive of any one of claims 1 to 8, wherein the modified starch is an oxidized starch.

10. The corrugating adhesive of any one of claims 1 to 9, wherein the modified starch is oxidized by chlorine, sodium hypochlorite, or a combination thereof.

11. The corrugating adhesive of any one of claims 1 to 10, wherein the modified starch is oxidized in process a comprising 0.01% to 1% active chlorine.

12. The corrugating adhesive of any one of claims 1 to 11, wherein the starch is oxidized such that a slurry (6 grams of the oxidized starch (dry basis) dispersed 103 grams of water containing 0.5 grams sodium hydroxide) heated from 40° to 90° Chas a peak viscosity of 2,300 to 3,000 Brabender Units (BU).

13. The corrugating adhesive of any one of claims 1 to 12, wherein the modified starch is a crosslinked starch, and, optionally, wherein the modified starch is crosslinked in a process comprising 1 ppm to 100 ppm POCl3.

14. The corrugating adhesive of any one of claims 1 to 13, wherein the adhesive comprises a carrier component and a suspended component, and wherein the carrier component and the suspended component each comprise a modified starch.

15. The corrugating adhesive of any one of claims 1 to 14, wherein the adhesive comprises a carrier component and a suspended component, each component comprising a modified starch, and wherein the modified starch has an attribute selected from the group consisting of:

(a) the modified starch in the carrier component is obtained from the same base starch as the modified starch in the suspended component;

(b) the modified starch in the carrier component is modified by the same modification as the modified starch in the suspended component;

(c) the modified starch in the carrier component is also gelatinized;

(d) the modified starch in the carrier component is also gelatinized, using caustic agent;

(e) the modified starch in the suspended component is a granular starch; and

(f) a combination of two or more of (i) to (v).

16. The corrugating adhesive of any one of claims 1 to 5 and 7 to 15 being

substantially boron free.

17. The corrugating adhesive of any one of claims 1 to 16, wherein the adhesive includes about 15% to about 40% starch by weight of the wet weight of the total adhesive.

18. The corrugating adhesive of any one of claims 1 tol 7, wherein the adhesive includes a carrier component having a modified starch in an amount of about 1% to about 15 % by weight of the wet weight of the total adhesive.

19. The corrugating adhesive any one of claims 1 to 18 being substantially free of wet strength resins or comprising 0% wet strength resins.

20. The corrugating adhesive any one of claims 1 to 19 where wet strength resin at reduced commercial doses is added.

21. A corrugated material comprising the corrugating adhesive of any one of claims 1 to 20.

22. The corrugated material of claim 21 wherein the wherein the corrugating material has a wet pins to dry pins ratio (%) of about 1% to about 10% or about 1% to 7% or about 2% to about 7% or about 3% to about 7%, or of about 3% to about 6%, or about 3% to about 5%, and optionally wherein the corrugated material is a double wall or triple wall corrugated material.

23. A method of making the corrugating adhesive of any one of claims 1 to 20, comprising mixing a modified starch having an amylose content of 30% to less than 40% (by weight) with water to form a mixture of modified starch and water, wherein said mixture of modified starch and water is, optionally, further mixed with a caustic agent.

24. The method of making the corrugating adhesive of claim 23, wherein enough caustic agent is added to increase the viscosity of the mixture of modified starch and water at an elevated temperature.

25. The method of making the corrugating adhesive of claim 23 or 24, wherein enough caustic is added to gelatinize at least a part of the modified starch in the adhesive.

26. The method of making the corrugating adhesive of any one of claims 23 to 25, wherein the modified starch is a first portion of the modified starch and the water is a first portion of the water, and wherein the method further comprises mixing the first portion of the modified starch, the first portion of the water and the caustic for sufficient time to gelatinize the first portion of the modified starch to form a carrier component, adding a second portion of the water to the carrier component to dilute the carrier

component and adding a second portion of the modified starch to the diluted carrier component.

27. A method for making a corrugated material comprising:

(1) providing
