Features & Benefits

Superfilm® 470 starch is an oxidized waxy maize corn starch developed for use in surface applications on paper and packaging grades. Superfilm® 470 has superior film forming and water holding properties which result in improved surface strength and printability. Superfilm® 470 exhibits excelllent viscosity stability in all applications and is completely compatible with all commonly used size press and coating additives.

Applications & Uses

Industrial Additives End Use

Superfilm® 470 is designed to be applied on the surface using a size press or calendar stack (water box) to help improve surface strength and printability. Determination of the optimized paste dilution levels and viscosity for a particlular application
can be accomplished with the assistance of your Cargill Technical Service personnel.

Superfilm® 470 starch solutions are obtained by dispersion of the powder in water and cooking by steam: Jet injection of steam: continuous cooking at 260° F to 305° F, at final solids up to 33%.

Open vessel with stirrer: 20 min batch cooking at 190° F to 205° F, at solids up to 25%. Your Cargill Technical Service personnel can help determine the ideal cooking conditions for maximum performance of Superfilm® 470.
