Starch

Starch is a polysaccharide which is formed in plants and accumulated by them as nourishing substance. Because of variety of its properties, and ability to their changes, the native starch and the products of its processing, modified starches, can be applied in pulp and paper, textile, construction, foodstuff, perfumery and many other industries.

Cationic starches

The cationic starches are used in pulp and paper industry. They can be produced having various substitution degrees (gamma values), viscosity indicators, pH-values and other properties, customized for specific purposes, customers.

Depending on their qualitative properties the cationic starches are used as follows:

  • in shower systems of paper-making machines as a suspension for a heightening of interlayer strength in multilayer types of paper and cardboard
  • as an additive in a paper pulp by production of paper and cardboard for a heightening of mechanical strength, as well as for improving of dehydration and down holding
  • by preparing of ASA emulsions
  • for a down holding on a paper fiber of emulsion glue АKD particles
  • as a starch with a high substitution degree

Oxidized starches

The oxidized starches are disorganized (splitted down) starches and they are used as follows:

  • in a pulp and paper industry for a surface sizing of paper and cardboard in a gluing (sizing) press of paper-making machine for a heightening of mechanical strength, including a surface strength
  • in the construction industry the oxidized starches are used as adhesive and binding agents by a production of gypsum plasterboards; they provide a safe adhesion of cardboard coating layers with a gypsum core

Native starches

Native starch is a natural (common) starch. It can be easily adopted by a human organism. It is widely used in a foodstuff industry (confectionery, bread baking, sausage and other productions). The native starch is also used in production of corrugated fiberboard, textile, medical and pharmacological articles.

The product meets the requirements of the GOST 32159-2013.
Shelf life: 2 months from the date of fabrication.
Storage requirements: this product is to be kept in covered, dry and good ventilated warehouse rooms, without any foreign odors, not infected by bread inventory vermins, under the relative air humidity not more than 75%.
