Graphical Paper, cationic liquid starch, ASA emulsifier, binder starch, cost reduction, coating star

Coated or uncoated of printing and writing paper is a kind of graphic papers used for communication purposes. However, there is highly competitive in this market due to the evolution of digital era. To survive in this change, all paper mills need to reduce the production costs and develop the paper products to match with the market needs as well. SMS has the solutions based on our innovative starches for entire papermaking processes, from wet end to coating applications.

ASA emulsifier, modified starch

ASA Emulsifier

PROMPTSIZE 30 is a ready-to-use cationic liquid starch as ASA emulsifier, optimizing cost by enhancing ASA emulsion performance, less ASA hydrolysis and high retention on fibers.

Wet End Solutions

SMS has launched functional starches as an excellent binder for high filler contents in order to reduce total costs and environmental impact, The EXCELBOND® Series enhances internal strength for paper and improves machine run-ability especially high-speed machines for uncoated paper production, maximizing retention and drainage performance as well.

Also, our modified starches the EXCELCAT® Series can be used for all paper grades. It is designed for a wide range of pulp conductivity, effectively performing even with high conductivity systems due to reduced consumption of fresh water. It delivers improved internal strength, fine retention, and drainage, to optimize internal sizing consumption as an ASA/AKD emulsifier.

Surface Sizing Solutions

The EXCELSIZE Series is modified tapioca starch with a controllable viscosity range, used to improve surface strength and smoothness with good film forming.

The EXCELSIZE C Series predominant function is printability improvement and BOD reduction of broke recycling processes in wet end operations.

Coating Solutions

A cost-effective solution by replacing synthesis binders with eco-friendly products, the KLIC Series is an additive for total binder reduction in coating formulas resulting in significant binder cost reduction.

It can be added in dry form to the coating color for a convenient use and lower energy consumption.


Our modified starches, the EXCELCOAT® Series is suitable for use as a co-binder in coating formulations to reduce binder cost.

It has a better stability than traditional coating starch, allowing for higher starch solids without affecting the production process and improving the optical quality of papers.

Water retention is also significantly improved resulting in the reduction of additives, especially rheology modifiers.
