SAVINGS IN STARCH CONSUMPTION
SERFIX S20 OE
The starch consumed in papermaking is mainly used for mass, spray and surface application, whether it is native starch (of very diverse origin, such as corn, potato, wheat, tapioca, rice, etc.) or modified (cationic, oxidized, amphoteric, etc.)
SERFIX S20 EO technology is a pioneer in the market due to the reduction in the consumption of native starch applied by spray. It is a proprietary blend designed to increase the size of native starch particles in suspension.
How does it Work
The modification of the applied native starch surface allows to increase the retention of the starch on the sheet of paper, which translates into greater efficiency of the latter, reducing the consumption of starch for the same results. The product interacts with any type of native starch, modifying the distribution of the size of the particles, which translates into an improvement in the retention of starch in the final sheet and a reduction in its consumption; and consequently a reduction of starch in the circuit water, thus improving the quality of the process water.
- Dry strength is maintained by using less starch.
- Reduction of the cost of starch treatment.
- Starch reduction in strained water.
- Lower costs and better machine stability.
