Westar+3
Cationic flake corn starch
Westar+3 Cationic Flake Corn Starch was developed specifically as a replacement for cationic potato starches with the added benefit of greater strength and hardness. Westar+3 has a high nitrogen content (0.3%), the same as imported European potato starches. It will floc 25-30% more colloidal silica than our regular Westar+ Cationic Flake (0.22% N2) giving it an advantage in high silica formulations (8% by weight of fibers).


Westar+3 offers these advantages

More Uniform Coating and Floccing - Corn flakes disperse much faster than potato flakes, creating a more uniform product.
Flocs 25-30% More Silica - Readily flocs high silica formulations and is particularly effective with smaller particle colloidal silica, like Bindzill 1440.
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.
