Potato starch based coating binder
Perfectacote™ is a series of special developed high quality potato based coating binder. As Perfectacote™ is available in a wide range of viscosity levels; outstanding rheological behaviour under all circumstances is guaranteed. It allows high starch containing coating formulas with a binding power that easily matches synthetic binders. The carboxylated character ensures good retainability resulting in a minimal impact on the starch load of your water system.
Using Perfectacote™ offers you:
- Outstanding rheological behaviour
- Optimal runnability at high speed
- Increased paper stiffness, so you can work with an increased mineral content and lower grammages
- Less downtime
- A significant cost reduction
