Westar+
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.


Westar+ offers these advantages

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 - Readily dispersing 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 - No More Shortages - Corn starch does not suffer from periodic shortages as do the European potato starches, so you can confidently plan for ample supplies.
Reduces Costs - Our flake corn starch requires 30% less colloidal silica for optimum floccing so less binder is required, reducing formula cost.
