Cationic Starch

Cationic Starch

Cationic starch is a modified form of starch which is added to a wet pulp to enhance the paper strength by attracting the negatively charged cellulose fiber of the pulp. The cationic starch mainly used as wet-end starch. It is used in paper & paper board manufacturing to increase Cationic Starch's internal strength properties as well as retention of fillers & fines.


Application

Cationic Starch
  • Improves stiffness, opacity, printing quality and brightness.
  • Improves paper machine run ability as well as productivity.
  • Improves effluent quality and reduced cost.
  • Reduced dusting, lining and size addition.
  • Faster drainage & improved sheet formation.
  • Decrease of the suspended solids in the final effluent.
