Cationic Starch – STAR CATA

Leading Manufacturer of Cationic Starch, Cationic Starch Suppliers in India, Cationic Starch at Best Price

Cationic starch is a modified form of starch that is added to a wet pulp to enhance the paper strength by attracting the negatively charged cellulose fiber of the pulp. The cationic starch is mainly used as wet-end starch. It is used in paper and paper board manufacturing to increase cellulose fiber internal strength properties as well as retention of fillers & fines.

Although native starch can be used as wet-end starch, cationic starches are more preferable. As a result, fiber-to-fiber and fiber-to-filler bond are increased. Hence improved the retention of fines and filler and also increased paper sheet strength. We are leading manufacturer, supplier and exporter of Cationic Starch from India.

Cationic starches are important starch-based additives that have been used for decades in a variety of industries and products including cellulose paper and cardboard, textiles, and cosmetics. They can be used as a rheology modifier, thickening agents, flocculants, emulsion stabilizers, textile sizing agents, paper binders, and coating agents. The most important application is the production of paper and cardboard. Cationic starches are known to improve tear strength, help to bind particles together and on the base paper material, and increase the retention of fibers and fillers.
