Modified starch is made from tapioca starch through chemical and physical changes. It is used to improve the properties of the resultant paper as  an internal additive, internal bonding, coating binder and as an adhesive.
Our product can be applied to all kinds of paper such as coated paper and printing  paper.

Established   Nov. 1983

PIRAAB is a modified starch produced by introducing chemical substitutes into a starch molecule. Co-invented by the research departments of Honshu Sangyo Co., Ltd. Of Japan (today known as Oji Trading Co., Ltd.) and Piraab Starch Co., Ltd. of Thailand, it has been an integral material for paper production by major Japanese manufacturers for the past 30 years. As a cationic starch, Piraab enhances fines and filler retention, thus, improving the quality of resultant paper. These are just some of the advantages from using Piraab as an additive :

1. Improved retention of fines and filler.
2. Increased internal wet-web bounding strength.
3. Easier de-watering of paper-machine wiring
4. Applicability in “neutral” or “alkaline” papermaking.

Consequently, “PIRAAB” ensures improved product quality and reduced production costs in a variety of papermaking processes, handmade and machine made, and papers such as liner board, wood-free, printing, base and art papers.

Year–round Supply

Cassava (Manihot esculenta Cranzt) , or tapioca, is  one of Thailand ‘s most important commercial crops. Typically, the plant is cultivated twice a year, February – April, and after the monsoon season, or November to January. Roots are then harvested 8-10 month after planting.

With 1.1 million hectares devoted to cassava, the country is producing 18-20 million tons annually, enough to satisfy starch industry demand all year round.

No Genetic Modification (GMO)

As  the demand for cassava and starch continues to increase, research and development has been vital to satisfy this call for higher quality and yields. Since 1975, seven improved varieties, all  free of any genetic manipulation ,have been  introduced, and this work continues to ensure needs  needs are met.

Stickiness: With a high ratio of amylopectin to amylose (80 :20),cassava starch gel with good freeze-thaw stability.

CATIONIC  STARCH

Characteristic of Piraab products

    1. Characteristic of our raw materials ( Tapioca starch ) , compared with corn starch
      1. Amylopectin is contained more , glue liquid can be more advantage in stability
      2. Gelatinization temperature :Lower (helpful to energy cost down)
      3. High dulation, Superior in the strength of addhesive so on.

2. Characteristic of Piraab Starch ( characteristic of tapioca cationic starch )
Internal additive
1. Due to charge cationic ,applicability in various pH areas.
2. Due to characteristic of ion ,availability in strong affinity with an-ionic cellose or filler.
3. Due to the better absorbtion with pulp, it effects in the various strenght of resultant paper.
It also helps less BOD in wasted water.
4. Easiness of dewatering from paper machine wire,better to be released from press roll.
It will runproduction effciently.
Binder for coating clear coat
1. High anti-aging ,possibility for coating as stable.
2. Superior in forming film,you can expect to have stronger surface due to strong adhesive.
Internal bonding strength
1. Gelatinization temperature is lower than raw starch,it can helps to down the drying energy cost
under same paper manufacturing condition.

COMMITMENT TO PRODUCT EXCELLENCE & CUSTOMER SATISFACTION

Quality Assurance

Our first concern is satisfying  customers’ demands for the best product only. To accomplish this, we have  instituted the strictest quality assurance system beginning at root selection, starch extraction , drying and modified starch production. At the Piraab Starch factory, we are continually taking samples and testing for viscosity, pH,  enzymes, nitrogen and fine particle ppm, etc. to ensure all finished product meet our very high quality standards.

Piraab environment activity follow the Oji Group Environmental Charter, which was formulated in 1997, defines the Oji Group’s environmental conservation philosophy and its Action Guidelines.
