|Cationic flake corn starch|
|Westar+ Cationic Flake Corn Starch was developed specifically for floccing colloidal silica onto refractory fibers for bonding of vacuum formed composites and shapes. This starch is pre-cooked, dissolves readily in cold water, and offers advantages over potato starches.|
|More Uniform Coating and Floccing —||Corn flakes disperse
much faster than potato flakes, creating a more uniform product.
|Higher Green and Fired Strengths —||Corn starch micelles
are half the size of potato starch micelles, resulting in higher strength,
hardness, and density.
|No Pre-Dissolving or Cooking —||Readily dispersing
pre-gel flakes can be added dry directly to the slurry tank, providing more accurate
additions, reduced bacterial attack, and less labor and equipment.
|Made in the USA —||Corn starch does
not suffer from periodic shortages as do the European potato starches, so
you can confidently plan for ample supplies.
