Wet-End Paper Making Starches
The papermaking process involves a complex mix of natural and synthetic polymers interacting through mechanical shear forces. Cargill’s range of starches for the wet end gives manufacturers greater control over the papermaking process, improving the formation, drainage, retention and strength of the final sheet.
Our skilled application specialists and sales team are ready to perform wet-end audits and find out – together with you – which is the most suitable starch for your process. From our extensive portfolio, no doubt we can find the perfect starch to suit your system!
C☆Bond™ cationic starches
Cargill C☆Bond™ cationic starches are much more than just dry strength additives: they improve the effectiveness of retention, dewatering and sizing chemicals through synergistic action. This range includes new grades for use in recycled and wood-containing systems and includes products specifically targeted at papermakers with closed systems, looking for increased machine productivity. They have also been developed to suit for ASA emulsification supporting ASA sizing whenever preferred.
C☆iBond® wet-end starch
C☆iBond® wet-end starch improves wet-end performance while optimizing costs. C✩iBond® wet-end starch range has been designed to match modified potato starch performances while remaining a long-term cost effective alternative. Our innovative C✩iBond® wet-end starch range has been designed to match modified potato starch performances while remaining a long-term cost effective alternative. C✩iBond® ensures quality performance over time and plays a key role in the total retention and dewatering. Obtained from renewable resources which secures durable availability, our wet-end starch range will increase your runnability and drive to further cost optimization.
Altra Charge™ starch-based natural polymers
Our patented Altra Charge™ products and associated technologies are a new generation of performance additives for demanding wet end systems where efficiency, flexibility, and – most importantly – cost of manufacture, are critically important. We developed the Altra Charge™ line of starch-based natural polymers to expressly impact the areas of drainage and retention on the paper machine, and strength properties of the final sheet.
