SPECIALIZED PRODUCTS FOR PAPER MANUFACTURING
Oxidized starch, as the name suggests, is modified starch produced by means of oxygenation of starch with a variety of oxidizing agents. Oxidized starches have shorter chain lengths than native starches. It improves whiteness and reduces microbiological content. In addition, the hydrogen bonding reduces the tendency to retro-gradation. Producing soft- bodied gels of high clarity, oxidized starches are the best thickener for applications requiring gels of low rigidity.
It is used for getting into mass and for surface sizing. It increases strength and improves quality of paper and cardboard on the basis of primary and secondary semi-finished products.
Nowadays, maize starch is diluted and sprayed on the paper to increase its stiffness and Bursting Factor (B.F). The spraying of Maize starch on the Kraft paper results in a temporary increase of Bursting Factor (B.F.) and stiffness which decreases gradually with the absorption of atmospheric moisture.
As a replacement to Maize starch, we have developed a special product, Moisture Resistant Paper Stiffener for paper mills. This product is sprayed on Kraft paper during its manufacturing. It will resist the absorption of atmospheric moisture and keep stiffness and B.F. intact. This product is specifically developed for increasing the Bursting Factor (B.F), Stiffness & R.C.T of the paper.
Advantages Offered :
- Increment in B.F. of the paper (more in comparison to maize starch)
- Increase in stiffness of the paper
- Increase in R.C.T. of paper
- Decrease in COB value of paper
