Surface characteristics of coated paper play a vital role in paper and print quality. Today, paper products must be designed with optimum surface properties to meet increasing performance requirements. Technological advances (including bigger and faster machines) require new, more cost-effective, and environmentally friendly products.
Coating color mixes consist of three basic components: pigments, binders and water. The most common natural binder is starch. The Cargill bio-polymer range for use in coating paper allows papermakers to choose from a wide range of tailor-made modified starches for specific solids/viscosity levels, water retention ability and paper quality.
