It enhances internal bonding resulting in less amount of paper dust formed and gives possibilities to reduce furnish costs by replacing chemicals and high quality of fiber with other grade of fiber.

Carrier Starch

SMS offers modified starches, SMS C200, SMS C300 and SMS GREEN416, as carrier starches for corrugated board industry. These modified starches provide the beneficial functions;

Good water retention

Adhesive containing carrier starch has good water retention. Most of the water is retained in the adhesive rather than absorbed by the corrugating medium leading to get fully gelatinization.

Stable viscosity

The unique modification of carrier starch helps shear resistance and provide more consistent viscosity during machine operation.

Faster development of green bond

High performance carrier starch has been designed to speed up the development of green bond while improving corrugated board quality.

Increase machine efficiency

With the using carrier starch, the production of corrugated board is  able to run at higher machine speed with good runnability. There is less sheet board delamination and wastes paper reduction.
