Our product range includes a wide range of Ampcat.
AMPCAT-25 (cationic starch) is a wet end starch used in paper & paper board manufacturing to increase its internal strength properties as well as retention of fillers & fines. It is also used by the manufacturers of AKD emulsions.
AMPCAT-25 (cationic starch) has a cationic charge attached to it, which improves the internal strength properties of the paper by forming a strong bond between the fibers. The electro kinetic attraction promotes better contacts between the anionic cellulose fiber surfaces and the starch hydroxyls groups (Pre-gelatinized cationic starch also available).
