Improve paper quality with potato starch
Potato starch has the highest molecular weight compared to other native starches. A higher molecular weight corresponds with a higher binding power. Amylofax™ a pure potato starch derivative, is the natural choice for wet-end applications.
Amylofax™ comes within very narrow specifications and has the absolute minimum in variation in cationicity, guaranteeing outstanding runnability. No product available is cleaner than Amylofax™.
Key features of Amylofax™
Amylofax™ will not only bring you maximum runnability but also:
- High performance at low integral costs
- Optimal retention, due to a high level of flocculation properties
- Maximum binding power
- Less environmental issues as Amylofax™ stabilises wet-end chemistry
Amylofax™ products are modified starch products, obtained from non-GMO food grade potato starch. They comply with all the applicable legislation for food contact paper and board. Amylofax™ is allowed to be used in direct food contact.
FDA: Amylofax™ meets the requirements for Food starch modified, implying that it also meets the requirements for paper and paperboard in direct food contact.
BfR: Amylofax™ meets the requirements as described in Empfehlung XXXVI as well as Empfehlung XXXVI-2 (baking paper).
