HI-CAT® - Cationic starch

Paper strength and paper retention
HI-CAT® has an important action in the creation of sheet of paper. He works on the characteristics of products to involve strength and retention.

Introduction

HI-CAT® plays an important role in the making of a sheet of paper having a major influence on the paper retention formation and the paper strength characteristics as well as significantly improving machine runnability.

The bonds formed between anionic fibres and cationic starch are very strong with virtually total fixation of the starch to the fibres. This results in the formation of a strong fibre network.

Product Description

Applications

HI-CAT® plays an important role in the making of a sheet of paper having a major influence on the paper retention formation and the paper strength characteristics as well as significantly improving machine runnability.

Cationic starches are used for different grades of paper such as printing and writing office paper coated paper multipurpose paper publication paper newsprint and also for packaging paper like fluting testliner and kraftliner based on new or recycled fibers.

HI-CAT® range of products are easily dissolved using the HI-CAT® cooker designed by Roquette.
