Cationic Starch

Cationic Starch

The cationic starches mainly used as wet-end starch. As the cationic starches are positively charged, they are easily attracted by the negatively charged cellulose fiber and fillers. As a result fiber-to-fiber and fiber-to-filler bond are increased. SPAC Cationic Starch improved the retention of fines and filler and also increased paper sheet strength. Spaccata is cationic wet end starch derived from high quality tapioca / maize starch. Spaccata has been developed to provide the paper industries with consistent, cost effective quality product with a unique features. It is used in the manufacturing of papers / Boards to increase the internal properties as well as the retention of fillers and fines.
