TATE & LYLE INDUSTRIAL STARCHES

Industrial Starches
The Industrial Starches division provides global industries with excellent
solutions based on high quality starches and a skilled service team of
specialists, all supported by top-end processing equipment and state of
the art application laboratories. Combined, they provide the customer
with a solution for every requirement.

We are specialised in the following


industries:
Paper and Board Production: In the
paper industry our starches are used to
increase dry paper strength and improve
surface quality. Starch is a vital component
of quality paper along with cellulose and
fillers, influencing every step of the paper
making process, from sheet formation to
surface improvement. It is used in most
paper grades, whether in printing and
writing paper, board or corrugating base.
Corrugated Board Production:
Our specialty starches are used to
bond the different layers of paper in
the manufacture of corrugated board.
For several decades Tate & Lyle has
worked with producers and machinery
suppliers to develop efficient, tailormade solutions to adhesive problems.
Specially designed native and modified
starches manufactured under ISO quality
control procedures, help guarantee

product performance. Through improved


understanding of the basic principles of
the glueing process and the development
of comprehensive glue kitchens,
Tate & Lyle is guiding its customers
towards optimum product use. Flexibility,
reliability and modern technology are
Tate & Lyles three pillars of strength in
the corrugating field.
Construction and Other Industries:
Our starches are also used in adhesive
and building product applications, as well
as in other industries such as textiles,
where it improves weaving efficiency.
To guarantee state of the art solutions
we build on the following components:
Manufacturing and Supply Chain
Excellence: We serve our customers
from 6 well located corn plants in Europe.
Application Expertise: Our R&D and
application laboratory in the Netherlands
has a wide range of pilot facilities and

we work closely with several reputable


institutes and organisations.

scientists, and regulatory and
quality experts, allowing us to
offer comprehensive and deep
product knowledge.
Equipment and Engineering
know-how and service: We provide
several processing and dosing equipment,
supported by our team of specialists.

TATE & LYLE INDUSTRIAL STARCHES

Paper and board starches


Starch is a vital component of paper, next to cellulose and fillers.
Starch influences every step of the paper making process, from sheet
formation to surface improvement and printability.
Tate & Lyle offers several options on starches for each type of paper
and board application. Besides maize based native starch, we also
produce modified starches, tailor-made for each application and
designed to fulfill your requirements.
Starches for wet end
The most important property of
MERIBOND cationic starch in wet
end is that it forms bridges between the
cellulose fibres. The result is a strong fibre
network and paper sheets with higher
tensile and burst strength. Moreover,
cationic starches improve the retention of
anionic pigments, which enables higher
filler levels while also contributing to
faster dewatering.
Optimum application rates vary from
mill to mill and from grade to grade,
but are likely to be between 0.5 and
2.0% dry starch on dry fibre. The starch
application dosing point will determine
paper properties: strength improvement,
retention and/or dewatering.
To our present knowledge, all our
starches are fully compatible with
synthetic retention aids and other wet
end additives.
Spraying starch is another application
to improve plybond or even surface
strength properties. The starches, mostly
unmodified, are sprayed directly on
the dewatered paper just before the
press section.

Starches for surface sizing


and coating
Our MERIZET range are the standard
products for surface sizing application.
Once hydrolysed, they penetrate into the
paper sheet and increase strength values.
Next to our standard native range, we
also provide a product range designed to
ensure optimum enzymatical conversion.
After in-mill hydrolysis and sizing of
the paper, they improve mechanical
properties, surface smoothness and
printability, and reduce dusting.
Low cationised starches such as the
MERIBOND types (also used in the
surface sizing application) will be retained
in the sheet when repulped, with up to
90% reduction in BOD load of effluent
water compared to non-cationic starch.
In coating applications we propose our
MERIFILM brand (highly modified
starches) in order to influence the
rheology of a coating colour and provide
excellent binding properties together with
coating pigments. These starches are
designed to partially replace latex in the
coating formulations. Their hydrolysed
structure allows for high solids cooking.

Specially designed native and modified starches help guarantee product performance.
Through new insight into the basic principles of the glueing process and the development
of comprehensive glue kitchens, Tate & Lyle is guiding its customers towards optimum
product use.
Flexibility, reliability and modern technology are Tate & Lyles three pillars of strength
in the corrugating field.
MERIZET Native starches
Native starches are reliable, standard
products delivering good performance on

MERIBOND Modified starches


MERIBOND starches are processed in
Steinhall adhesive preparation systems.
They have been designed to fulfill the
three key requirements for optimum bond
performance.

Combined, the above benefits of


MERIBOND starches allow for higher
corrugator speeds and lower moisture
input. Equilibrium of moisture content is
reached quickly and the board is flatter
and less waste is produced.

2. Short structure
MERIBOND starches render a specific
visco-elastic structure to the glue and
have a distinct rheological behaviour
(see graph 2). Glue is positioned on
the flute tip only, exactly where it is
supposed to be to ensure proper
55
bonding, resulting in reduced
splashing.
Consequently, less glue is used,
resulting in lower moisture input, higher
47
speeds and improved board quality.

How Tate & Lyle


can assist you

Our starches are used in building


materials. MERIFILM 102 is an acidthinned starch that is advantageously
used in the manufacturing of gypsum
boards. When mixed with gypsum slurry,
it gelatinises in the oven and optimally
migrates towards the edge of gypsum
and board. During the cooling the starch
then retrogradates and forms hydrogen
bridges, effectively binding the board to
the gypsum.

Equipment Engineering
We provide our customers with
comprehensive solutions for industrial
starch applications. These include
engineering and design of starch
handling, slurrying and cooking
systems. Glue kitchens for corrugating
plants (such as AMYCOR PC and
AMYCOR C) and efficient jetcookers
for paper mills (such as AMYJET E for
enzymatic cooking and the AMYJET
C cationic cooker) have been part of our
total solution package for over 25 years.

Starches are also used for sizing, finishing


and printing in the textile industry.Sizing
helps to improve weaving efficiency
and theappearance of fabrics while
enhancing printing quality. Through sizing,
our starch brings strength to the yarn/
warp, minimising breakage and increasing
weaving properties. We offer MERIZET,
MERIFILM and MERIBOND starches
of different viscosity profiles to provide
thetextile industry with the best yarn
sizing properties for the machines at
different speeds.
Our starches are also used in many other
industries such as adhesives, binder,
stabiliser and strength improver.

Start-up of the equipment and


operations are supported by our
qualified personnel. Regular technical
visits ensure that our customers starch
processes are running optimally and
yield the full benefits and performance of
the starch products.
Starch and Application Expertise
At the premises of our Dutch maize
starch plant, the Starch Expertise Centre
facility provides technical support for
the use of starch in Paper, Board and
Corrugated Board Applications. In this
facility we continuously investigate the
latest technologies, in order to create
state-of-the-art solutions in products
and application technology. The Starch
Expertise Centre also supports our sales
team to help your business with the use
of our new products.
In the Centre we have laboratory
equipment to test starches in their
industrial applications (for instance
cooking, coating, sheet forming, wet
end etc.) and test their performance on
paper quality (for instance internal bond,
IGT, tensile strength). Additionally we
complement our own services with those
of our external partners, institutes and
universities.
