Applications of Spray Starch

  1. Spray starch is an modified tapioca/maize starch which can be used in the wet end by means of spraying to increase the strength and ply bond in case of boards
  2. It helps in reducing the delamination of the plys of the board
  3. These are applied on the paper machine wire through the spray bars while the web is formed
  4. In special cases it is used to improving Z-directional strength or to reduce the delamination tendency between plys
  5. Due to low gel temperature easily get gelatinized
  6. By using spray starch the spring back tendency of the board improves.
