In the past, the process of improving bonding performance and board quality, while reducing starch consumption, centered around the addition of costly chemicals to starch adhesives.

Through a redesign of the mixing tank, together with an exclusive sealed Viscosity Detection System, The FlexaMix™ is able to precisely control the swelling of unmodified pearl starch.  The FlexaMix™ Starch Mixer liberates corrugator plants from the starch additive paradigm.

This ability to precisely control starch swelling achieves the following:

– Elimination of the use of starch additives

– Reduction in starch consumption

– Pre-set and consistent batch-to-batch viscosity

– Use of untreated wash water in starch adhesive production

– Formulation of perfect adhesive for any type of paper

– Lower cook, storage and gel temperatures
