Applications & Uses

Industrial Additives End Use

The principle application of Superfilm® 244D is at the size press. Solids levels are dependent on desired viscosity, paper characteristics and type of paper or paperboard to which it is being applied. Cargill's Technical Service personnel can assist you in setting guidelines for your application.

Superfilm® 244D starch solutions are obtained by dispersion of the powder in water and cooking by steam: Jet injection of steam: continuous cooking at temperatures up to 325° F, followed by dilution to the desired concentration.

Open vessel with stirrer: 20 min batch cooking at 190° F to 205° F, followed by dilution to the desired concentration. Your Cargill Technical Service personnel can help determine the ideal cooking conditions for maximum performance of Superfilm® 244D.
