SPAC CATA-Cationic Starch is 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 gets increased.
SPAC Cationic Starch improves the retention of fines and filler to increase paper sheet strength. SPAC CATA is cationic wet end starch derived from high quality tapioca / maize starch.
SPAC CATA has been developed to provide the paper industry with consistent, cost effective quality product with a unique feature. It is used in the manufacturing of papers / Boards to increase the internal properties as well as the retention of fillers and fines.
