ETHYLEX® Surface Treatment Starch optimises viscosity and adhesive strength during paper formulation.
The ETHYLEX® Surface Treatment Starch family offers a complete range of ethylated starches for surface sizing and coating applications. These starches provide system cleanliness, viscosity stability, adhesive strength, pigment binding, and excellent water retention. Hydroxyethyl substitution significantly alters the functional properties of the starch, and the various degrees of thinning provide near tailor-made solutions for size press or coating applications.
