Oxidized Starch

Oxidized Starch

Oxidized Starch is a modified starch formulation with controlled viscosity and extra strong film properties. Oxidized Starch finds wide application in the field of paper (coating & sizing). It helps in improving wax pick, gloss smoothness of paper by forming strong and flexible film on fiber. Viscosity of Oxidized Starch can be modified as per customer specification.


Application

Oxidized Starch
  • Improved print ability and pigment coating.
  • Improved brightness, smoothness.
  • Improved surface strength and provides hold out of printing inks.
  • Oxidized Starch Have good paste stability, clarity and reduced tendency to retrograde.
  • Oxidized Starch Has lower pasting temperature.
  • Provides tough, clear and flexible films.
  • Pastes are more stable to salts and hard water than pastes of cationic or anionic starches.
