Oxidized Starch | SPAC OXY

The Oxidized Starch is derived from high quality maize / tapioca starch. It is widely used in paper manufacturing.

Properties

Oxidized Starches have the versatility to be pasted through any cooking system and will improve printability, pick, ring crush, fiber lay, fold, mullen and tensile. They are ideal as a coating base or in the coating itself. In a coating formulation, SPAC oxidized starches can provide improved ink holdout, gloss, reduced picking and controlled binder migration.

Features

  1. Superior binding strength
  2. Long texture
  3. Impeccable finish
  4. White color fine free flowing powder, insoluble in cold water.

Applications

  1. Paper surface sizing in Size press (In this application, the fibre on the surface of the paper are glued and covered with a starch film. This gives the paper better writing and printing properties. The pressure in the size press rolls induce the solution to penetrate the mass of the paper, which improves the mechanical properties of the paper).
  2. Coating in size press modified Starch SPAC OXY is used as pigment binder.
  3. SPAC OXY is widely used as coating Binder.
  4. Paper coating (regular and color)
  5. Carbonless paper stilt material
  6. Construction (concrete block binder, asbestos, clay/limestone binder, fire-resistant wallboard, plywood/chipboard adhesive, gypsum board binder, paint filler)
