|Cationic flake corn
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
Uniform Coating and Floccing -
disperse much faster than potato flakes, creating a more uniform product.
Green and Fired Strengths -
micelles are half the size of potato starch micelles, resulting in higher
strength, hardness, and density.
flakes can be added dry directly to the slurry tank, providing more
accurate additions, reduced bacterial attack, and less labor and
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.
||Our flake corn
starch requires 30% less colloidal silica for optimum floccing so less
binder is required, reducing formula cost.
