Wet-End Paper Making Starches
The paper-making process involves a complex mix of natural and synthetic polymers interacting through mechanical shear forces. Cargill’s cationic starches for the wet-end production phase are far more than just dry strength additives. They give manufacturers greater control over the paper-making process, improving the formation, drainage, retention and strength of the final sheet.
Benefits of wet-end cationic starches:
- Increased fiber and ash retention
- Improved process runnability
- Better dewatering behavior
- Wide range of cationicity
