WESPOLY™

WESPOLY™

This is an internal cationic starch engineered to improve the internal bond and dry-strength properties when compared with standard wet-end starches. WESPOLY™ maintains excellent retention and drainage and can be customized for each mill or paper machine's unique needs. This product line of engineered wet-end cationic starches is specifically designed for retention of ash and fillers.

Features

The Wespoly™ product line is a series of high quality, quaternary cationic starches engineered to improve retention and drainage while maintaining strength in paper and paperboard production. Features of this wet-end starch include:

  • Fine Paper: Improved retention of ash/filler and fines, increased dry strength properties.
  • Kraft Paper (bags): Increased dry strength properties, porosity, drainage and retention.
  • Kraft Liner: Increased dry strength properties, drainage and retention.
  • Board: Increased ply bond, drainage and retention.
  • Newsprint: Improved mechanical dry strength properties (linting), drainage and retention.

Applications

Successful applications of WESPOLY™ have been detailed in the following case histories:

  • Large West Coast linerboard mill changed to our engineered Wespoly™ product line, which increased retentions while decreasing starch consumption by 20%.
  • Second West Coast linerboard mill changed to our engineered product line resulting in increased productivity with lower starch consumption.
  • Small West Coast fine paper mill also changed to Wespoly™ engineered product, eliminated a retention aid, and improved paper quality while reducing starch consumption.
