SPAC CATA-Cationic Starch is mainly used as wet-end starch. As the cationic starches are positively charged, they are easily attracted by the negatively charged cellulose fiber and fillers. As a result, the fiber-to-fiber and fiber-to-filler bond gets increased.
SPAC Cationic Starch improves the retention of fines and filler to increase paper sheet strength. SPAC CATA is cationic wet-end starch derived from high-quality tapioca/maize starch.
SPAC CATA has been developed to provide the paper industry with consistent, cost-effective quality products with unique features. It is used in the manufacturing of papers / Boards to increase the internal properties as well as the retention of fillers and fines.
